simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

We don’t know about you, but with the jam-packed summer we’ve just had, we’re in much need of a little R&R, which of course for us means spending some quality time with our sewing machines. This month’s cool and casual Aisling Dress (p34) is a delight to sew and our go-to for laid-back lunches and summer fetes, while the boho-style Tamsyn top with its long sleeves and sweet tassel details will effortlessly take our me-made wardrobes from one season into the next. And if that R&R just sounds too tempting, we’ve got a beautiful home spa set for you to stitch up as well, which includes a chic bathrobe and kimono slippers, so you can kick back in style with a herbal tea in hand and your favourite sewing magazine.…

time out

What's the biggest challenge as a sewist? Finding the time to stitch! Household chores, nine-to-fives, family and friends (and all the distractions in between), ensure we don't clock up anywhere near the sewing hours we would like. And we all know how beneficial an hour or two spent at our machines can be. So, we're making a pledge (and you can too) to carve out far more time in our schedules for stitching. Whether you use it to make yourself an Aisling Dress (p34) or a chic spa set (p20), that's totally up to you!…

Functionality and fashion don’t always go hand in hand, but they work together in perfect harmony for Rosie Drake-Knight’s beautiful handmade bags. Combining classic shapes, contemporary details and practical design, Rosie’s collection of totes, purses, bucket bags, cross-body styles and hand-printed pouches are a joy to carry every day. Rosie experimented with decorative leather work during her final year of studying textile design at Falmouth University, but launching a business wasn't always part of her plan. “It was only when I started out in the real world that I realised I wanted to find a use for the decorative pieces I was creating, so I started to construct bags and pouches and things have developed from there.” Her bags and pouches are “designed for function and longevity” and are all made…
