Welcome to the Saturday Night Showcase! A collaboration between blogger, Hila, from Saturday Night Stitch, Fabworks Mill Shop and Sew Different. Hila has produced a unique collection that encapsulates her quirky, upbeat style using fabrics from Fabworks and, of course, patterns from Sew Different.

  • Hila’s Scoop Pinafore is made from a marigold design jacquard fabric (£10/m) which holds the structure of the tulip-shaped skirt perfectly.
  • She has made great use of the pretty selvedge by incorporating it into the bottom seam of the pinafore skirt.
  • Hila has used three different colourways of a polyviscose mix called Leopard Shadows for her take on the Moon Pocket Maxi.
  • She has made it her own by cutting the original dress at knee length, adding a white band and then simply adding two gathered rectangles to make the bottom frill
  • Finally she has cut the bottom to create a hi-low hem!
  • She has also added some ribbed cuffing for the neckline!
  • Hila’s Geo Dress is made in a range of co-ordinating ponte fabrics. (£6m)
  • This amazing psychodelic https://sewdifferent.co.uk/geo-dress/version of the Geo Dress is made in a scuba fabric called Kaleidascop (£7/m)e Galaxies!
  • She has centred the large diamond for a symmetrical look. Most of this dress uses the overlocker for a super-quick finish.
  • She has used machine smocking to pull the dress in at the back and under the bust for a closer fit..
  • This pretty version of the Everyday Chic Dress uses a polycotton gingham (£5/m). Hila has cut the fabric for the bodice on the bias. Her giant pockets (where she keeps her kindle) are satin-lined!

To see more details of this collection (and some great dance moves from Hila), have a look at her Youtube video. I love the way she wear her clothes inside out so you can see the construction!

You can find the patterns on the Sew Different website shop and all the fabrics are available from Fabworks Mill Shop.
