My Pattern Picks!

Remember my silk kimono? That was my first encounter with Love Sewing magazine. I was really impressed with how current and informative this magazine is, and you can probably imagine my excitement when the editor Helen asked me to write a feature on My Pattern Picks! 

This has just been published in the latest issue, issue 12, which has been on sale since 26th March. I'm sure regular readers of this blog will not be surprised by the patterns that I chose below, as I have never shied away from recommending them :)  

Here are the links to my versions of these 5 wonderful patterns:

McCalls 2401 (need I say more?) 
version 1 (blurry)  version 2 (spotty) version 3 (stretchy floral) version 4 (neon lace)

Simplicity 2311 
My wool coat

Simplicity 1368
My 30-minute maxi

Vogue 1137
My unlined version

Another piece of good news is that I am now a White Tree Fabrics blogger! Watch this space for my makes ;) 

Thank you for allowing me for some self-indulgence! 


  1. I saw you in the magazine when it landed on the doormat. I think it was my last issue in the subscription too. :)

    1. Aw that's great! How did you find the first 12 issues? I think I bought 4 or 5 in the end, and thought it was a pretty good (and current!) sewing and dressmaking magazine.

  2. Congrats on the article! This has reminded me that I wanted to buy Simplicity 1368 after seeing your maxi skirt before, and I've now ordered it online today :)

    1. Thank you Suzie! And that's great - I can't wait to see your version!

  3. How cool! Congratulations!!!!!

  4. Congratulations! I haven't heard of thisagazine before but it looks really good. I love McCalls 2401 too - in fact I might have found your blog when googling versions of it! I've made it 3 times now and have fabric for a 4th.

    1. Hello fellow McCalls 2401 fan! Great! Looking forward to the 4th ;)
