Weekends are for relaxing, so we take a relaxed approach to weekend dressing, with casual, comfortable staples that can be layered up with our wardrobe favourites. Sew a capsule weekend wardrobe with The Sunday Set dungarees sewing pattern which can also be made as a pinafore for easy layering. This fun-to-make sewing pattern comes free with the September issue of Simply Sewing magazine).
The Cotton + Chalk collection’s Sunday Set sewing pattern ticks all the weekend style boxes. It includes both ultra-comfy dungarees and an on-trend pinafore dress, both perfect for wearing with a classic striped tee, a pretty blouse or a warm jumper on chilly days.
Whether you’re spending the weekend meeting friends for coffee, getting crafty in your sewing room or enjoying a family day out, getting dressed will be a doddle with these two styles to take your pick from. Both options have a self-faced bib, shoulder straps, waistband, side seam pockets and a back zip, and the pinafore dress has a patch pocket and gathered skirt.
