Simply Sewing – Issue 15

Just a quickie today. It’s been a little quiet here of late as I’ve been poorly. Booooo to Winter viruses and roll on Summer I say! So just stopping by to share my contribution to this month’s Simply Sewing Magazine. Back in refashioning territory here…press - simply sewing - issue 15 - convertible trench

Yep…..I cut a trench coat in half, added a super long zip at the waist and hey presto! Two coats in one!!

This month’s issue centres around the free sewing pattern that’s included for this “Daisy Dress”. A pretty classic vintage style and worth buying just for the pattern if swishy vintage dresses are your thang! There’s also a cute stripe tee refashion…Simply sewing issue 15 collage

And this cute button up skirt tutorial. At the moment Simply Sewing are giving away these John Lewis Sewing machines to new subscribers. So if you’re thinking of subscribing, now’s a good time!! Just Click on the link in the sidebar 😉

    With my issue I got an ‘easy-stitch anchor purse’ which when I opened has no instructions, it does state on the front what the envelope contains and doesn’t mention instructions so probably my own fault…. so where do you get the pattern and instructions from because when following the link to get the ‘all the templates you’ll need’ it directs you to Issue 42 of Mollie Makes and the link However when you eventually find Issue 42 there is no mention of the anchor purse and I do not want to subscribe to something if I cannot get the template……. what a pain this is turned into, I feel slightly let down and Simply Sewing should be aware what Sainsbury’s are up to….
