Issue 109 of Sew has arrived, with all kinds of inspiring dressmaking projects, plus items to make for the home or to give to your loved ones. This issue’s FREE New Look pattern features five tailored dresses for special occasions, plus we’ve got a selection of garments to suit everyday wear. We quiz Mr X Stitch about how cross stitch became a hot trend, meet Ruth Maddock who designs patterns for children with an overwhelming condition, and look at the Queen’s ever stylish wardrobe throughout her reign. In addition, we reveal the latest stitchy news and products, plus we announce the winners of the British Sewing Awards 2017. All this, plus £1,250+ of giveaway prizes makes this an issue not be missed. You can download all our project templates for free at sewmag.co.uk/templates
