From baby showers to proms, engagement parties to weddings, spring is when the invites start rolling in, so it’s time to put our sewing machines to work! Sweet gifts for new arrivals, fresh home updates and occasion frocks – we’ve got them all covered in Simply Sewing issue 15. Here’s a peek at what’s inside…Meet The Daisy Dress, issue 15’s free sewing pattern – a modern update on the classic 1950s fit-and-flare dress, perfect for proms, parties and everything in between.
The Daisy Dress can be made in UK sizes 6-20 and has a pretty pleat detail at the neckline, fitted bodice and flattering full skirt for twirling on the dancefloor.
Dress your Daisy up or down, and make in a variety of fabrics to create different looks – and don’t forget to share yours with us using #simplysewingmag!
If you’ll be welcoming a new member of the family this spring, sew issue 15’s super-soft lamb plushie (or even a pair of them!) and a machine-embroidered baby bib – both make lovely gifts. Older kids will love the shark pencil case made from just 2 fat quarters.
Issue 15 has some great additions for your spring wardrobe, too – there’s our Daisy Dress pattern covergift, part two of the Tilly and the Buttons bow blouse sew along, a button-up skirt, trench-to-jacket refashion and peplum tee.
