Lazy picnics in the park, long walks on the beach or balmy evenings out with friends: there’s nowhere this breezily stylish summer frock won’t take you! For this fantastic free pattern, we’ve teamed up the lovely lasses from Pattern Runway, a new boutique pattern company with all kinds of stylish downloadable sewing patterns. Wear this little number with flats, with hats, with sunnies and with headscarves – dress it up or down for any occasion and enjoy sporting this seasonal staple all summer long. We made ours in a light, breathable cotton from The Fabric Store, but it also works well in lived-in linen or beautiful, draped silk – play around with different pattern options like stripes, polka dots, printed or plain. And the best thing about this fantastic frock? All the compliments (and requests) you’ll get when your friends find out that you made it with your own fair hands. Download the instructions here.

Northern Lights Capelet I knit this Northern Lights Capelet in the spirit of the earliest knitters, to bring light and warmth into the darker, colder months. Wear this cropped little cape under or over your coat, a streamlined layer that blocks arctic air from necks and shoulders and looks very pretty doing it! Knit up in a soft palette of Purl Soho’s beautiful Flax Down, this Capelet is a blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen.

Jennifer Lauren Vintage: The Enid Sweater - New Pattern Release! I've been working on this pattern for months and months and I'm so happy to be able to finally put it out into the world - I'd had the idea for a while now, ever since I took part in my first Me Made May in 2013 where I'd get lots of questions about where all of my cropped cardigans and sweaters came from. Since they're pretty much all vintage items, I'm afraid I was rather unhelpful.

Independent Pattern Company Resources Here’s a way to spend a rainy holiday weekend :D If the Butterick/ McCall’s/ Vogue or Simplicity/ New Look and Burda, Kwik Sew, or Neue Mode patterns don’t warm your heart, why not explore smaller pattern design companies. Most of them focus on a particular style. DIY NO SEW NEOPRENE CIRCLE SKIRT 25th August 2014 Whenever I feel the urge to make something but don’t have time to deal with the more fiddly elements of sewing, I reach for the neoprene. It’s such a versatile fabric, and I’m sure I’ve mentioned before how much I love it because you never have to sew hems (winning!). Independent Pattern Designers I’m a huge fan of independent patterns and I’m always on the search for new ones. I thought that I’d include a working list of pattern designers that I’ve come across for your reference. I’ve tried to stick to designers whose focus is on adult apparel. Some of these brands have numerous patterns while others are smaller outfits with one or two items.

Super Soft Merino Fluted Cowl Our Fluted Cowl combines two of our very favorite things: elegant drama and Super Soft Merino!

DIY Gift Tutorial: Lip Balm Holder I saw a picture of a lip balm holder on Pinterest, but there weren’t any instructions. I always lose my lip balm in the bottom of my purse! I thought it was a great idea to use up fabric scraps and a cute little something to include with other gifts for Christmas, so I decided to figure out how to make my own.

Independent Sewing Patterns for the Plus-Sized Sewist - The Finished Garment The Big List of Plus Size Independent Pattern Designers Am I plus-sized? I don’t know. Applique inverse: un tutoriel This is a really fun, simple project. Yet another way to fancy up some plain tees or a great fix for old shirts with holes. It takes a little practice to master sewing a curved design like this one. I'm definitely not there yet but, I was pretty impressed with myself this time around. Professional lingerie patterns and sewing supplies — Make Bra Today I’m experimenting how a georgette fabric works as a bra and brief material. A primary reason why I picked up this particular fabric from the fabric store were these beautiful roses. A lot of them in different sizes and shapes, bringing a real challenge to the design. Freedom to choose the most beautiful ones. I love this part of the process.
