Sew 111 Sneak Peek

The June issue of Sew is all set for summer with not one but TWO FREE patterns – a Simplicity design featuring four stylish dresses, plus a New Look pattern offering a complete outfit including a sleeveless top, wide-legged trousers and a swing jacket. Other projects to boost your wardrobe include a gathered linen top, retro-style shift, a Breton stripe tunic and a paperbag skirt. We also have a variety of upcycling ideas to breathe new life into old chairs, worn-out jeans and plain photo frames, plus cute characters to delight the kids – a pretty mermaid and an adorable family of guinea pigs! What’s more, if you enter the British Sewing Awards nominations for 2018, you’ll receive another exclusive toy pattern to make Jackie Russell, our friendly dog. You can download all our project templates for free at sewmag.co.uk/templates
