May day, may day! Issue 110 of Sew has hit the news stands, packed with inspiring projects that you’ll want to make right NOW. It comes with a FREE Simplicity pattern to make the easiest halterneck dress ever with no fastenings of any kind – how quickly can you finish yours? In addition we have several summery tops, plus a smart A-line skirt to make from Ponte Roma jersey – the perfect introduction to sewing with knits. We also have a selection of gifts and home décor sewn from luscious Liberty fabrics, plus a collection of stash-busting makes that can be whipped up in minutes. We also chat to historical costumier Ninya Mikhaila about the BBC’s A Stitch in Time and examine how pockets became such an essential part of wardrobes. You could also win £6,430+ of prizes in our bumper giveaways, so grab your copy today. You can download all our project templates for free at sewmag.co.uk/templates
