Stylish Sewing and Dressmaking

The sewing revival continues, so if you’re an experienced crafter or feel inspired enough
to try your hand at some beginner projects, we’ve got a wonderful and varied selection of
patterns and accessories.

The most rewarding part of dressmaking is creating something unique to you. Browse through our new season selection of paper patterns for some covetable designs. The range includes great beginner options like loungewear and sleepwear guides to crafting comfy separates for the whole family.

If you’re after fabulous dress styles this Cynthia Rowley pattern offers paper guides for 3 stunning silhouettes and the choice of fabric is all yours. The myriad of options from trusted sewing brands such as Simplicity offer pattern types for tops, home accessories and gorgeous kids’ clothes.

The sidekick to every sewing hero is their trusty sewing machine. Not all sewers require the same functions from their mechanical buddy, so it’s important to find one that offers a selection of options that suit you and will assist in achieving your creative goals. Very light and at a good price, the JL Mini Sewing Machine is a novice’s dream package and in a bevy of vivid colours, it really packs a punch.

Thanks to the new wave in home crafting, creating and altering is easier than ever with patterns, models and accessories galore. To make you feel like an expert tailor right off Saville Row, get acquainted with a mannequin to craft your pieces with ease, or feel like a proper Mary Poppins with this darling Cath Kidston Bright Pop Tape Measure.

Each project demands the perfect fabric and our mini bolts of fabric provide the perfect amount to make a dress. With spring just around the corner, take a look at patterns such as The Craft Cotton Co. Floral Fabric for a light summery frock you’ll be proud to show off.

Sometimes the best way to indulge in the joy of sewing and crafting is to soak in some inspiration from those who’ve spent many hours honing their skills. Read up on all these areas from our fantastic selection of books. They make the perfect gift for any craft enthusiast, particularly the fun P.S - I Made This..., a book urging readers to ‘re-invent and re-use’ with runway-ready results.
