A world of sewing and craft at your fingertips

  • Your London Fashion Week Inspiration

    As the fashion event of the year had its final curtain call for now, we show you how to create the hottest picks from the catwalk for a fraction of the price.

     

    This installation of Fashion Week saw an explosion of colours and prints for the Spring/Summer seasons ahead for next year. We saw deep and blushing pinks from the likes of Mary Katrantzou and Roland Mouret, whilst we saw gorgeous ditsy floral prints splashed across 1950s silhouettes from Erdem. Topshop Unique delivered once again, especially with their statement coats. And how could we not leave out Cristopher Kane’s bejazzled Crocs?!

    Oh Chris, just no.

    First off, we have the beautiful sheer blouse from Topshop Unique. We can’t deny the detailing is to die for. The tie and cuff details can easily be replicated into your own blouse with Vogue’s blouse pattern. It contains six different types of blouses to make, all are super-easy! Find it here.

    And how could we leave out this beautiful piece from Erdem? Full-bodied skirts are back next year to be perfectly paired with full-bodied cocktails and you can make them in a variety of lengths from Kwik Sew.

    Full-bodied skirts get a revamp at Erdem

    The skirts are the perfect example of a garment that can really be played with. Keep it simple with a soft chiffon fabric, or sex it up with a bold and daring print! Get the pattern here.

    Erdem have really hit the ball out of the park this year, especially with the timeless 50s bralette silhouette.

    Fun fifties bralettes make a comeback for summer

    Simplicity have a fantastic range of time-inspired patterns, including the bralettes shown above. Mix it up with strap variations and don’t forget; the brighter the print, the better!

    Next up, we have jumpsuits. They’re back! But did they ever actually leave our wardrobes? We saw an abundance of soft fabrics and colours in a range of playful and oh-so-serious power-suit shapes.

    Mimi G has you covered for the jump (suit)

    This Mini G pattern from Simplicity makes a striking comparison to Preen’s shouldered number. Whilst the busy ruffles do not feature on the Mini G creations, the prominent one shoulder detail is enough to make a statement. Get yours here.

  • Prints Please!

    With the summer season drawing to a close, we pick out the prints you can wear on these last moments of sunshine and plan for this coming winter

     

    We've seen a whole explosion of amazing, bright, bold and classic prints resurfacing for the spring and summer months of this year. Although stores and fashionistas alike are looking towards autumnal trends, we'd like to hang onto summer a little while longer and savour these fabulous prints, whilst planning our winter wardrobes. Our range of clearance Makower fabrics will cover all the bases.

    First up, we have the classically cool staple for any power suit. That's right, we're talking about stripes and pinstripes.

    This year, we saw them adorning the suits and deconstructed shirts of RED Valentino, DKNY, Mulberry and Roberto Cavalli. You can recreate their creations at a fraction of the price, or start something completely new with the stripe collection from Makower. Featuring the classic deckchair pattern in eight colourways, this will look fabulous made into a smashing meeting outfit.

    Classic Stripes

    Next, we have the gorgeous ditsy wallpaper prints from the likes of Victoria Beckham, Fendi and Chloé. Think delicate doilies and grandma's cushions - but with an updated twist. Cover yourself with spraytime and ditsy prints for the ultimate girly look. Oh how floral doesn't get boring!

    Granny-sheek wallpaper winners

    A trend we couldn't not notice is this year's mighty summer staple print: gingham. This print is a real winner as it's over 400 years old! A must for any holiday wardrobe, we have nine colours of the gorgeous gingham fabric available to make a whole host of summer essentials!

    Gorgeous Gingham, need we say more?

    Who can forget about the polka-dot? It's come full circle yet again and graced the Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy catwalks. Create a gorgeous 50's inspired skirt, or a simple sleeveless top. Need we say more?

    Polka proud

  • Top 5 Craft Gadgets You Will Love!

    Let’s face it, when it comes to crafting, we love a gadget. Anything that makes life easier, quicker and more productive is a big win in our book!

    So, we rounded up some of our most popular selling gadgets, and searched out a few more that you perhaps never thought about. Any sewing or needlecraft geek (we include ourselves in that) will love them!

    1. Freestanding Hemline Marker

     

    How on earth do you get an even hem as easily as possible?  You get this gadget, of course! Freestanding and therefore compatible with any
    mannequin, live model or yourself, this fabulous hem marker is simple to use and guarantees no wonky hemlines. The difference between good tailoring and bad dressmaking is all in the finish, and considering you’ve spent all that time making the garment, ensure you have the tools to finish it to a professional standard.

    Buy It Here for £18.49! >>  ADJFOR HEM 2

     

     

     

     

     

    2. Ruler Handle

     

    Seems painfully obvious when you look at it, but how many times have you accidentally slipped the ruler you’re holding because you just can’t get your fingers in the right place? This genius little invention gives you extra purchase on your hold, ensuring a clean line to cut or mark and less chance of your fabric pulling away when you try to slide your ruler along or adjust it.

    Buy It Here for £3.35! >> SEWESY ER900

     

     

     

     

     

    3. Sewing Gauge & Point Turner

     

    A personal favourite of quite a few dressmakers here at Sewing Online, this nifty gauge is three tools in one.  Check your button shanks accurately, gauge your crochet or knitting tension, measure repeats or scallops, and best of all, turn corners into perfect points with the shaped tip - which is better than using an old ruler (or knitting needle or knife… we’re all guilty there.)

    Buy It Here for £1.95! >> HEMLIN H258

     

     

     

     

    4. Wool Ball Winder

     

    Anyone who avidly knit in the 1980’s probably had one of these – in fact, we’re certain a few of our Mums had one as it was so much fun
    to play with them! Wind up your wool into neat balls with this fab winder, which clips securely to a table top. Easy!

    Buy It Here for £29.45! >> KNTPRO KP10941

     

     

     

     

     

    5. Knitting Calculator

     

    This is pretty ingenious! This little tool converts centimetres into stitches and rows, and adapts to any pattern. Even better, it’s perfect for anyone who designs their own patterns and needs to work out sizing accurately.

    Buy It Here for £3.75!! >> PONY P60671

     

     

     

     

     

    6. Notion Themed USB Dongles

     

    Okay, this makes six gadgets, but they are way too cute not to shout about! These 2GB USB portable digital storage sticks are shaped as a
    sewing machine, cotton reel or tape measure, and are ideal for programming digital sewing machines and storing downloaded pdf patterns. Plus, they look great on a keychain and are definitely more fun than a boring flat USB dongle!

    Buy Them Here For £11.35 each!! >>

    Tape Measure SEWESY E102-01
    Cotton Reel SEWESY E102-04

  • Costume and Garment Structure: Guide To Interfacing

    Whether an experienced dressmaker, or just getting started, it’s always wise to brush up on the basics. You know your needles, thread, and fabric, and you’ve gotten pattern reading sussed out. But what’s this about interfacing and stabilisers? And what (if any) is the difference? And why do we need them?

    Interfacing and stabilisers are indeed two different things and both have their relevant uses across dressmaking and crafting.

    Interfacing is a permanent layer, which can be sewn or heat-fused to your fabric, and gives it weight or structure. If fusible (heat fixed) then one side may appear slightly shiny.

    In tailoring, the garment construction and shaping is dependable in part on the fabric used in the project. Silk, chiffon, crepe, cotton and linen all hang very differently when draped, and sometimes need a little persuasion to sit right. Here’s where interfacing comes in. It’s perfect for
    building the weight of a fabric slightly, to aid the silhouette of the garment.

    Consider waistbands, collars, cuffs – you’re probably checking your own clothes now! - but many garments will have some form of facings, especially around ‘high traffic’ areas.

    There’s a few options all in varying weights, but the main few you’re likely to encounter are split into three types:

    ·Woven – ideal for cotton and light fabrics, added as a layer and attached in the seams

    ·Fleece – this is usually fusible and is soft but weighty and can also add warmth

    ·Knit – as it sounds, this interfacing is knit and has a degree of flexibility for knit/ jersey fabrics

    The word ‘web’ or ‘fusible web’ may also be grouped with interfacing and stabiliser, but the main difference here is that it is fusible both sides, and therefore used to fuse fabric together, not to add stability. You may use this as a hemming quick fix/ repair, or for applique projects, but it’s not meant for interfacing with.

    In contrast, stabiliser is more useful when sewing slippery or lightweight floaty fabrics, and is a temporary measure to give more handling as you sew. It will also offer some reinforcement if stitching is likely to cause damage to the fabric.

    As it’s temporary, there are two main kinds of stabiliser and choosing the right one will depend once again on the choice of fabric. Lightweight fabrics work well with sew-in/ tear-away stabiliser, which is quite papery; for a lot of localised stitch work, slightly heavier sew-in/ cut away stabiliser will hold better.

    For embroidery or partial stabilising, fusible/wash-away stabiliser works well. As example, take a look at the wrong side of any machine embroidered garment, and you may notice the remnants of stabiliser around the motif.

    If you use stabiliser for other more robust sewing and craft projects, then a more suitable product may be sew-in stiffness or foam stabiliser. This is perfect for hats, rigid structures such as fabric bowls and boxes, bags, wallets and more outlandish costumes which need exceptional
    structure control but minimal extra weight. Theatrical tailoring – such as for pantomime costumes like the Ugly Sisters - are often structured like this so the performer doesn’t put their back out wearing it!

    We always recommend testing any fusible stabilisers on a sample of the fabric you intend on using, and use a cloth or light towel as a buffer between the iron and the interfacing. It’s also wise to double check the fusible side is facing down before pressing. Trust us on this one. The iron was very unforgiving…

    Now you’re in the know, choose the right product for your needs and check out our
    range of interfacing and stabilisers at sewing-online.com!
