Meet our cover star!

Chinelo and Charlie

We’re loving having Chinelo Bally as our cover star for issue 9, and featuring a one-off exclusive pattern from the GBSB star in the magazine. Chinelo’s stunning batwing top is a fabulous introduction to freehand cutting and takes just a couple of hours to make.

“It’s liberating how creative freehand sewing lets you be,” says Chinelo. “Once you’ve tried it, you’ll never go back.”

We love the gorgeous Royal Blue shade of the Fabric Godmother Roma Jersey that Chinelo’s chosen to use. Fancy using Roma Jersey for your own batwing project? Flit over to Fabric Godmother and use code JERSS15 at check out to get 15% off!*

“I love an easy sew, a project that only takes a couple of hours,” says Chinelo. “I’m always last minute with my outfit choices, so this design is ideal!”
