Create some timeless fashion for you, friends & family, and home with these classic styles.
Dear Sewing Superstar,
February may be the shortest month, but sometimes it feels like winter will never end. But this is no time to be glum: each day’s a little longer now, and we’re headed toward spring. What better reason to thread your machine and make a classic addition to your wardrobe or work on a new quilt with time-tested blocks? We’re going retro!
Modern Meets Vintage
Forget about skinny jeans. Loose-leg pleated trousers have been around for decades — and for good reason! You’re going to love our Dietrich Loose-Leg Pleated Trousers pattern. These pants look good, they feel good, and they’re super versatile. Dress them up or dress them down, these trousers will keep you comfy and looking cool. You pick the pants fabric weight you like best and sew up a great classic Hollywood vibe. These trousers feature double buttons on the waistband, flattering front pleats, plus front and back pockets! They remind us of famous Hollywood stars like Marlene Dietrich and Katharine Hepburn — leading ladies who broke with tradition and fashion and started a trend of wearing flattering, tailored trousers.
Cap off your new classic outfit with a stylish beret. This pattern is beginner-friendly — our Winter White Classic Wool Beret totally customizable to go with what you’re wearing. Make it in winter white, or dye some fabric to match your favorite coat — this issue includes A Beginner’s Guide to Fabric Dyeing if you’re inspired to create something in a custom color. And one of the best things about our Winter White Classic Wool Beret? You can make it in the morning and wear it out to lunch. This classic (and classy!) headwear will only take you about an hour to make!
If you like to cook as much as you like to sew, you want to take good care of your pots and pans. Keep your pans looking pristine longer with a set of groovy pan protectors you can whip up in an afternoon. Our Far-Out Floral Fabric Pan Protectors combine groovy retro style with perfect practicality. Make them in three sizes to fit (between) your pans to prevent scratching, scraping, and that noise no one wants to hear when you’re putting pans away. Tap into flower power and keep your cookware cozy!
Timeless Patterns Every Quilter Needs
All quilts start with basic blocks; it’s how you put it all together that creates a quilt that’s uniquely yours. We have two patterns for you. Intermediate quilters will appreciate the classic beauty of the double wedding ring quilt pattern. Our Opal Evening Double Wedding Ring Quilt features a bold color palette you may fall in love with — or build this quilt with your favorite colors. You’re sure to love the intricate, interconnected rings that make up this classic quilt. This pattern is especially popular as a wedding gift, and will become a treasured family heirloom.
Just starting out with quilting? Grab some fabric and learn to make the Amethyst Flying Geese Block. This is an excellent foundational block for all quilters to learn. The beauty of this design is both its simplicity and its versatility — just wait until you see how many ways you can arrange and combine Flying Geese Blocks in your quilt making.
The patterns in our February Issue of We Like Sewing range from Easy to Experienced. That means skill and confidence building for beginning sewists, and interesting challenges for the more experienced among us. All these projects are designed to brighten your day, your wardrobe, and your home!
