Time for an Aperitif

Huge thankyous for all the skirt love comments.  Its always a little harder posting pics of things with me in so it helps when you all say such lovely things.  I know a few of you are feeling like you are just ready to rekindle your dress making or even dip your toe in for the first time.  So treat this post as a little aperitif to your dreams,  a selection of Saints and Pinners patterns at 40% discount as temptation to get you sewing.
Children's clothes are a great starting point.  This Oliver +S Music Class pattern is a little advanced with the buttons but the outfit won't take much fabric and the result is so cute!  Sizing is 6m- 4 years so if you trace off the pattern pieces there is a lot of opportunity to re-make again and again.  I kept many of the clothes and knitting I did for Lula, they hold so many memories. 
An easy girl's skirt pattern is this Little Belle pull on skirt by Favourite Things, sizing runs from 1-14 years.
Maybe you fancy something more for yourself?  These 3 Anna Maria Horner patterns are all great beginner makes, discounted and as with all AMH patterns they come with variations...
And there is  Little Folks voile in stock which suits all the dress patterns...

Tempting you again...I  can only apologise ;)  And if patterns aren't your thing, you will find fabric on sale too right here.

  1. Thanks for the recommendations.
    Ive only recently bought a sewing machine and the sewing world is so big out there that it's really appreciated to get some tips.

  2. See, the evening empire does look like it would be lovely and easy to sew, I just fear that I'd end up looking like a walking circus tent...

  3. Oh you have just made me order a pattern from simplicitynewlook - we'll see how long that sits uncut!

  4. Ooh, I like the Empire Evening dress, too -- wouldn't that look smashing in ombre monochromatic from white at the top down to black at the hem?


Thank you for taking the time out to leave your thoughts, I do very much appreciate you stopping by! Blogger is not sending comments through by email at the moment so I'll reply in the comments.
