If you’re looking to add a new swimwear piece to you summer wardrobe, make sure you take a look at Coralie Swimsuit & Bikini pattern by Tilly and the Buttons. This timeless swimsuit pattern is perfect if you’re looking to improve your sewing skills and is definitely not something to shy away from. Choose from 6 different versions, half of which have the cute addition of ruffles if you want to add an extra bit of decoration to your look. The choice between a high or low back, waist and leg mean you can pick whatever styles suites you best.

Our Brown Floral Swimwear Fabric is a great one to choose to get stuck in. It has a 4-way stretch which is key when making swimwear so you get lots of stretches and great recovery. Plus the muted 70’s tones would be ideal for your two-piece summer look.

Sew Confident Artemis Viscose Crepe by Fabric Godmother

Looking for a beginner-friendly sewing pattern for your holiday look? The Friday Pattern Company have got you sorted. Their Saguaro Set is a two-piece woven look that consists of a pair flowy of wide-leg trousers with pockets and an elastic waistband paired with a deep V pullover crop top. This set can either be dressed down with trainers or dressed up with heels. You could even decide to turn the top around and have a nice high-neck, low-back design if you’d like a bit of extra coverage on the neckline.

We suggest having a go with our Stardust Ochre Double Gauze from Atelier Brunette. The soft and summery fabric with golden embroidered dots provides a textbook summer look that never goes out of style. Another great one for this pattern is Artemis Viscose Crepe by Fabric Godmother which is an elegant and sophisticated crepe fabric that has a beautiful drape- a must for your summer wardrobe.

We are so excited about Friday Pattern Company’s new sewing pattern, the Elysian Bodysuit. This piece will become an everyday go-to, and the long sleeve will be ideal for the upcoming change in season. It has 2 cuff options, a scoop neckline and curved under-bust seams designed for easy movement and comfort. The different panels make it perfect for mixing colours and patterns within the design.

Try with this pattern with our Mini Leopard Print Cotton Jersey. This fabric is a classic print in a wearable colour combo. It gives you just the right amount of stretch to hug your curves but not be too restricting.
