simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

Autumn is on the horizon and we’re using the change in season as a perfect excuse to switch things up a little! We’re embellishing our clothes with fancy embroidery stitches and lace trim, giving our homes a modern makeover with calming painterly prints and adding new linen textures to our wardrobes. Whether it’s rejuvenating an existing garment, or sewing up something completely new – these next few months are the perfect time to unwind and enjoy some slow stitching before (dare we say it) festive me-mades start appearing on our to-sew list...

a stitch in time...

...saves nine. That's the saying, right? Never before has this seemed such a relevant phrase, as I unpick a toile I'm working on – that'll teach me for trying to sew late at night! Getting the right fit can be challenging (read more about sewing for curves on p64), but we always recommend you sew a toile (test sample) before cutting into your favourite fabric. I use old bedsheets for mine! If you're after a quicker finish, we've got plenty of weekend-friendly makes such as our patternless skirt (p56) lace-trimmed tee (p55) and patternless PJs (p68) that'll rival your kid's favourite bedwear! Until next time...…

SASHIKO INSPIRED Hand-stitched details are one of the prettiest ways to give your projects a truly bespoke, one-of-a-kind look – and the fabrics from Rico’s Jardin Japonais collection are just calling out for customisation! The geometric cotton prints, inspired by Japanese sashiko embroidery, can be easily personalised with stitching for a unique-to-you piece. www.rico-design.de FREE AND EASY Sew House 7's Free-Range Slacks pattern is so called because of how free you’ll feel when you wear them; designed for drapey linen fabrics, and with a loose, cropped silhouette, comfy elasticated waist and pockets, they're the ultimate in easy chic.

foxglove & field

We wouldn’t get very far without our sewing tools; from the smallest thread snips to our sewing machine (and, yes, we’ll admit it: our seam ripper), we couldn’t sew a stitch without these essentials. And now there’s another hero product we won’t be without – Foxglove & Field’s pattern weights. They might be small, but, weighing 130g each, your pattern will be held firmly in place with these little helpers (and they'll look good on your cutting table!). So, how did founder Louise come up with the idea? Surprisingly, inspiration didn’t strike in her sewing room, but while driving on the M62 (west of Goole, to be precise) on a road trip with her husband. “We were talking about sewing weights. I felt there was a gap in the market and…
