simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

What does autumn mean to you? For us it’s all about getting back in the kitchen (hello, new series of The Great British Bake Off!), packing away our summer wardrobes and getting started on some handmade gifts...because (you guessed it) Christmas is coming! In fact, we believe autumn is the best season of all for indulging in some quality time at your sewing machine. Add corduroy and velvet to your fabric shopping list, brighten up your home with zesty prints and delve into your scrap box to sew an irresistibly cute mini stocking advent calendar.

What's the me-made garment in your wardrobe that gets all the attention? We've had heaps of requests for a pinafore pattern over the years – so I'm thrilled to finally able to showcase our own take on this must-sew staple with three pocket options to try (page 32). You're going to love her. Talking of love, I can't get enough of Atelier Brunette fabrics (read more on page 36). Their breezy palettes are just the thing for winter styles – and we're onto a winner pairing them with this exclusive Nani Iro skirt pattern (page 39). Get in touch with your pattern wish-list... I'd love to hear what you want to be sewing next.…

Jeans Give jeans-making a try with Production Editor Michelle Grady’s faves. DAWN BY MEGAN NIELSEN I love a good-value sewing pattern, and Megan Nielsen’s Dawn pattern is certainly that! You get four staple jean styles in one, with tapered, straight, wide-leg and short options to make – I’m a fan of these cropped ones with a frayed hem. Find the pattern at www.megannielsen.com CASHMERETTE’S AMES JEANS As with all Cashmerette patterns, the Ames Jeans are all about the perfect fit; there are options tailored for apple or pear silhouettes, with two different leg styles plus a high rise and pocket stay for smooth shaping.
