Has anyone thought of adding jeans to your sewing list for 2023? Chalk and Notch have released a groovy new wide-leg or flared jean design that may be what you’re looking for – the Isle Jeans! The waistband is shaped with SIX darts which should help you get a great fit. They are designed for stretch denim, which is quite a good place to start if you’ve never sewn your own jeans. The large patch pockets give them vintage sailor vibes which seems to be pretty popular right now!
Sizing: UK 8 – 30
If you’re giving sewing jeans a go, you might want to check out our gorgeous selection of Kylie & the Machine jeans hardware kits. It’s so much easier than trying to source all your own bits and bobs as each kit contains the hardware and tools to complete your dream denim projects! Choose between four different metal finishes: copper, matte black, matte gold or pewter.
Is anyone else planning a little spring clean sort-out or updating the furnishings? This pattern may come in handy as you can make it with old curtains! The Greyfriars and Grace Balerno Bag is fully lined and has an optional magnetic clasp. You can make it up in mid or heavy-weight woven fabric and may be able to use up some of your scrap fabrics you have lying around. You could upcycle redundant curtains or upholstery fabrics and give them a new lease of life! If you like this idea, check out Greyfriars and Grace patterns as many of them utilise pre-loved clothing and items!
