Make it Today - Issue 10

Today I wanted to share with you my latest makes for Make it Today Magazine...

"Why buy a new outfit when you can make your own? In every issue of Make It Today, we aim to inspire all would-be stitchers to gain confidence and skills while having fun making outfits you can wear with pride, broadening your fashion horizons and helping you create and control your individual style, whatever your shape or size.

An exclusive magazine and pattern pack offering, Make It Today guides you through simple step-by-steps using oh-so-stylish dressmaking patterns from Butterick and The McCall Pattern Company. Exclusive projects from the UK's top designers enable you to produce lovely, comfortable and original items with ease and confidence.
In issue 10, we show you how to make a selection of wrap skirts, a Parisienne top, a tulip dress, a wedding veil and a ruffle bag. We give you the low-down on how to save time tracking down all the best haberdasheries in London and how to master the basics of overlockers, and we look at one of the icons of couture: Coco Chanel. Plus, we showcase the finest jacket tailoring options and some lovely looks for plus-size figures. Added to all this, there are interviews, news, fabric ideas, practical tips and goodies galore, all guaranteed to enhance both your wardrobe and dressmaking savvy!"
