Sew yourself cosy with issue 39

We might be dreaming of sewing summer frocks, but the weather has other ideas! So we’ve filled issue 39 with cosy makes that’ll keep you warm and stylish now, and new-season updates to kick-start your spring sewing too. Take a peek inside the issue…

Grab a copy in our online store today and read our issue highlights below.
Issue 39’s cover star is Cotton + Chalk’s The Drape Cardigan – a classic cardi in UK sizes 6-20 (US4-18/EUR 34-48). We’re firm believers that you can never have too many cardigans – from short cardis for layering, to oversized coatigans for effortless transitional dressing, the humble cardigan can do it all! And we’ve got both styles covered with this versatile pattern, with two options to sew: a short, drapey cardi, and a longline coatigan. Show us your version tagged #simplysewingmag
