    There is a great variety of patterns that comes with this eBook. They are all very versatile and have lots of suggestions for fabrics to use too (though it is a lot of pdfs to print and stick together!). Instructions are very clear with colour photographs (and video tutorials on the SOI blog for the really tricky bits). There is a lot of inspiration in the book with plenty of finished makes featured to give ideas on how to use the patterns in different ways.
    There are very few pattern pieces; I made the Molly top and dress together in one day. The pattern for these items is essentially the same piece, longer and straightened out for the dress. These is one of the easier patterns in the book and suitable for beginners (though you might want to have tried knits out already)
    The fabric I used came from the Sew Over It fabric store. I used a viscose jersey for the top. It is ever so slightly sheer but is incredibly soft and very comfortable to wear. The fabric for the dress was a heavier ponte roma jersey which was also easy to sew with and is even more comfortable on.
    Both of these have become staple items in my autumn wardrobe so far, and I have another Molly dress on the cutting table already (destined for a work dress if I can get away with it). I did have to make some alterations to the dress, reducing the seams at the waistline a fair amount (usually high street 10, making a SOI 10). I usually have to make this alteration to dresses so not much of a surprise.
    Thoroughly recommend – one of my most used sewing books already.
    As ever, more over on the blog at

    I sewed the Erin skirt from Sew Over It’s City Break Capsule Wardrobe collection.

    What I liked: This is a versatile pattern that could be sewn up just above or just below the knee in tons of different fabrics. It’s a true wardrobe builder, and it sews up very quickly. If you were feeling cheeky, you could use the skirt to show off eye-catching buttons. The large front pockets are highly functional for a gal on the go.

    What could be better: The pattern calls for a non-stretch woven, but I think something with the tiniest bit of stretch would help with recovery after a day of wearing the skirt. There are some spots in the directions that could be improved; for example, there are center back notches on the waistband that don’t align.

    You’re invited to read my full review and get tips for stitching the Erin skirt: Please let me know what you think!

    Perfect beginner make. Instructions are great as usual for this designer and sizing was spot on too. Will definitely try to make this again possibly in a suedette or non stretch fabric. Looking forward to making other items from the book. This is a lovely barkweave stretch denim from Fabric Godmother, which is a dream to sew up and the buttons are Prym jeans buttons from Minerva Crafts – no sewing, just clip together, yeah!
    The only alterations I made were grading for my apple shape (which is a normal alteration Required) and I also added a hidden button/buttonhole on the left placket between the waistband and first button to stop any gaping, which i’ve noticed on a few blog reviews.
