‘Sew a wardrobe in a weekend’ series (these posts were written in 2010, so in 2022 most of the patterns are out of print).
Wardrobe patterns
Fast jackets
Dresses
Tops
Skirts and pants
Layers and capsules
Pattern and body shape – comments on changing quick patterns according to body shape.
These posts were inspired by Sue Neall showing you can sew a wardrobe with many challenging techniques (altering to fit, bias cuts, double-felled seams, bias strip facings) in a weekend if you’re an expert. Fortunately for the rest of us there are many much simpler patterns, see the latest 2022 listing. Choose patterns using techniques that you’re already very familiar with.

Here’s my pinterest board on :
