The Jennifer Jumpsuit: The on-trend Summer staple.

The Jennifer Jumpsuit: The on-trend Summer staple.
This pattern has 4 pieces: front bodice, back bodice, front trouser and back trouser.  There is also an option to have a fully lined bodice which I didn't use at this time. The  jumpsuit came together very quickly in less than an hour.
Attaching the zips, binding neckline and sleeve edges were a breeze and instructions can be found on page 114-115; 120-121.

The Christie Circle Skirt: A simple sew with amazing results!

The Christie Circle Skirt: A simple sew with amazing results!
As a circle skirt lover, one thing I have come to realise is really important is waiting for the hem to drop. As circle skirts are made on the bias [*note that this skirt was cut on the cross-wise grain*], the fabric is likely to drop in different areas of the skirt. As such, you should wait before hemming your skirt.

The Etta Shirt Dress: A guaranteed show stopper!

The Etta Shirt Dress: A guaranteed show stopper!
African wax print fabrics are also perfect for new beginner dressmakers, being woven they are easy to create a variety of different projects from. From the projects within the book, the Etta dress was the one I just said ‘wow” as I turned the page! A classic shirt dress which a closely fitted bodice teamed with a flared skirt. A timeless piece that will be perfect for the summer days to come.

Wax Print Lottie Culottes: A Super Comfy Staple

Wax Print Lottie Culottes: A Super Comfy Staple
The Lottie Culottes pattern was an incredibly easy sew, without the pockets they took me less than two hours from start to finish. African wax print is always a joy to sew and when the pattern is this straightforward, making these culottes is such a pleasurable way to spend a couple of hours. The instructions and illustrations were so easy to follow!

The Dorothy Dress: Work from home in style!

The Dorothy Dress: Work from home in style!
I chose to make the Dorothy dress, an straightish tunic with patch pockets, a boat bracket and bell sleeves.  For me, it's the right balance between casual and dressed up. I'm working from home for the foreseeable future, and even before the pandemic I didn't have the kind of social life that required a lot of fancy frocks, but I do love a dress, and I thought the sleeves add that extra bit of interest.
