This time I bring you the Lapwing Culottes. After some confusion mostly from me I think, I received my pattern and fabric for my culottes. The fabric is a lovely linen from Rainbow Fabrics.  I had thought that I might wear them as pyjama bottoms as I could do with a pair for summer, but the linen is a bit ...

Please let me introduce one of the newest ladies in the Simple Sew pattern line-up – Tara! The pattern has a very sixties feel to it with a fitted bodice and pleated empire line skirt. I made view B in a size 8, and only had to make minor adjustments. I found that the bust apex landed in the wrong ...

Did you take part in Me Made May? I did, and one thing it taught me (apart from the fact that I have too many clothes) is that I reach for T-shirts more than any other garment. So, when it was time for the Simple Sew bloggers to choose their patterns for this month I got in there quick as ...

I’m always over-buying fabric. This month I found myself with a surplus of black drill from John Lewis that was too full of potential to stuff in a bag and worry about later. It’s shorts weather and I’ve been wearing my Denim Simple Sew Shannon Shorts every weekend. The sturdy structure of my drill fabric lends itself to another pair, the ...

Loose trousers and culottes seem to be dominating my sewing this year! The unusually warm weather that we’ve been experiencing for the last six weeks or so has definitely influenced my sewing choices and I’m enjoying wearing something more comfortable than skinny jeans. The Palazzo Trousers can be found with issue 18 of Sew Now Magazine or direct from Simple ...

Hello seamstresses! I’m going to start with the ending and a massive spoiler alert… I LOVE THIS MAKE! OK now back to the beginning… I wanted some high waisted wide legged jeans and I was determined to make them out of Simple Sew patterns so I started with the fabric and was so happy that Doughtys, our new fabric partner ...

I love a cosy sweatshirt so jumped at the chance to make the new Classic Sweatshirt pattern. This is a raglan sleeved sweatshirt that comes in two lengths. It has contrast ribbed cuffing and a loose, boxy fit. I chose to make the longer version and it’s such a snuggly length, it came out a lot longer than I was ...

Welcome to my debut blog for Simple Sew!  As the new kid on the block it was difficult to choose from the vast range of patterns on offer, but with summer hot on our heels (hopefully!), I chose the Kimono wrap dress in this beautiful Lady McElroy flamingo cotton lawn from Doughty’s. With holidays on my mind I wanted a dress ...

Hello again. Did you participate in Me-Made-May this year? I have pledged to wear two garments each day and I’ve pretty much stuck to it. My handmade wardrobe is getting that big! I’m all about the separates (hence my two-garment pledge) and so many of my makes have been Simple Sew ones. I confess I made the High-Waisted Trousers some ...

The Instagram Takeover Dress The Simple Sew Bloggers team have had a ball during May, taking over the Simple Sew Instagram feed, for Me-Made May. My turn was on Sunday 13th, and I had already planned ahead what I was going to post, but then I changed my mind on the day absolutely on a whim! I’d introduced myself in my first post, wearing one of ...
