So happy to have found Sew Different
Found you on the rebound from a really poor online course in fashion design dressmaking. Made the boxy top (my first EVER project) it totally cheered me up! Am now hooked and dying to try the tulip dress, artist’s top, slouch bag, Gambit range….and Please hurry up with more fabrics, will you do a rerun of the coffee rings? Pretty please?. Wonderful site, many thanks.
These patterns are a pleasure to work with. No flimsy tissue paper, but thicker paper, which I prefer. Clear instructions. If only all patterns were made this way!
Tulip dress – a quick sew comfortable dress
The pattern was easy to use and went together well. I had to make some alterations due to my body shape but that’s not unusual for me. The shape of the dress will flatter most body shapes and create the perfect hourglass illusion.
What surprised me was how much room I had around my mid section – If I get pregnant again I can easily wear this dress as a pregnancy dress ?
Everyday chic dress
This is another lovely pattern. The pockets are great. I needed to lengthen the bodice and made a decision not to insert the shirring. This was partly due to fabric choice and partly because I was nervous about messing it up!
I have made several Sew Different patterns and I love the designs. The pockets are usually ingenious and quirky and the instructions are clear and easy to follow
I am a beginner to sewing. I found the Slouch Top fairly easy to make, especially after watching the YouTube link.
Plus, my family didn’t realise it was home made! That was such a thrill for me.
Next I must have more courage and attempt a dress.
Response from Sew Different
That’s great to hear, Carolyn. Well done! Maybe move on to one of the easier multis size patterns such as the Tulip Dress , the Cocoon Jacket or the Everyday Chic Dress next.
Good for Beginners
I was quite nervous at first as I have not made many things before but the instructions were easy to follow and my Everyday Chic dress looks just like the pattern cover. Can’t wait to try another one.
Love these patterns!
I have made the Tulip Dress and the Essential Denim Dress and love them both. So easy to put together – will definitely make them both again. Looking forward to the Scoop Pinafore next.
At last, patterns in a decent size range!
Thanks for your inclusive sizing. Great to know that we, non-skinnies, are catered for!
