NEW WOVEN COLLECTION : Viscose Lucy Dress

Hi I’m Adelle @button_and_pip  and I’m here with my first blog post since being welcomed into the Pin & Sew blogging team. I am also very lucky to be the first one to review the new woven collection. Choosing a fabric to review was very difficult as the new woven collection offers many beautiful prints and if you know me, then you know that I can’t resist a print. I finally choose this fabulous Bubbles on Black viscose to make a Lucy dress from Workshop Patterns. This viscose is just super soft and has amazing drape. Sometimes I worry that...

PIN & SEW MAKES: Abstract Florals Sirocco Jumpsuit.

Hi Everyone, it's Amanda of I Sew A Lot back on the Pin & Sew blog today. I really struggled deciding what to make this month as the weather has been so up and down.

Anyway, when I saw this beautiful Abstract Florals Cotton Jersey which Aga had just got in it definitely made my mind up it is so vibrant and summery. I decided to make the latest jumpsuit...

Hi fellow sewers, I'm Ruth(@ruthiesews)and this is my first blog post as part of the Pin and Sew Blogger Team. I hope you enjoy it!

The jersey is really a lovely quality cotton, which is very stable.I was so tempted to make a dress, as I so often am, but I let the sensible part of...

SEWING FOR KIDS: Banana Boat Tee with Vinyl Applique

Hello, I'm Cherry (@goingtoneedstitches) and I'm delighted to be contributing to the Pin and Sew blog. I'm sharing a t-shirt I made for my daughter, who is 2.5.  I had some of this lovely striped cotton jersey left over from a dress I made (this fabric is extra wide so you can squeeze more out of it than you think!), so decided to make something for my little one. I love patterns with extra details so was very taken by  the Banana Boat Tee by Lil'Luxe Collection. This was recently released as part of a collaboration of different designers for Project...

PIN & SEW MAKES: Glitter Jersey Kielo Wrap Dress

Hi everyone, I am Jenny – you can find me at @jennylovestosew over on Instagram and I was thrilled to be given an opportunity to write this guest blog for Pin & Sew.   Along with sewing I also enjoy taking part in the sewing challenges that often crop up over on Instagram and when #sewingpatternsandprints announced that March’s challenge was #sewingmetallicmarch I knew that I already had the perfect fabric. I first spotted this Leopard Glitter Jersey in early February but it was so popular that I missed out on the chance to buy some. Fortunately when I messaged...
