Cosy winter sewing in issue 50

This month, we’re channelling the hygge vibe! Grey skies and chilly temperatures have us staying at home and spending quality time with our sewing machines – and we’ve filled issue 50 with cosy projects so you can do the same, from home makes in luxe faux fur to easy-wear winter style updates. Take a peek inside…

Denim skirts are all-year-round staples, so we’ll be sewing up issue 50’s The Cressida Skirt to wear now with tights and boots, and a tee and sandals come the summer! Designed by Jennifer Lauren Handmade, this classic skirt in sizes 6-20 has a swishy 1950s-inspired silhouette, two button styles, optional belt loops – and, most importantly, pockets!



Share your vintage-inspired handmade style with us tagged #simplysewingmag – we’d love to see!

You can never have too many snuggly knits in your wardrobe, so sew your own with issue 50’s The Jodie Jumper! This chunky jumper in sizes 6-20 has a cute patch pocket detail and neat hem bands and cuffs – and there’s a bonus jumper dress download to make, too.

It’s designed for medium-weight sweatshirt, fleece and ponte roma fabrics, so is sure to be your go-to this winter!
