Love Sewing Magazine (issue 28)

While in the supermarket this morning, I spotted the new issue of "Love Sewing" magazine.  Initially at £5.99 it seems quite expensive, but when you take into account you get a free pattern and other bits as well as the information in the magazine it is actually good value.

The free pattern in this issue is by "Sew Simple" and is a beginner level tea dress (covering sizes 8-20). It has suggestions for both knee and maxi length of this dress. There are also two other free gifts - a pair of thread snips and a handbag sized sewing kit too.  All this along with other patterns for skirts, tops, bags and more.

There are a host of sewing tips in this issue, including how to create a perfect exposed zip in a garment, working on fine slippery fabrics like silk and satin.  As well as the usual May Martin page.

Talking of The Great British Sewing Bee, I see that on page 42-43 there is a feature on "Sewing The 60's" with pattern suggestions for vintage style dresses & tops from Simplicity.

So having flicked through the magazine, I'm going to sit down with a coffee and study it in more detail.  Have a great Saturday x
