Its very exciting to discover a new sewing magazine has recently launched. Sew Now mixes sewing projects with the latest high street trends, which seems like a great idea to me. Shopping and sewing all in one magazine! I mean.. what could be better?
Its equally as exciting to find myself designing a project for the second issue of the magazine!
You might have noticed the shops are peppered with all sorts of versions of bomber jackets, from satin to jersey, they really are a key item for this season. Worn casually or dressed up, a brilliant versatile style.
When sourcing fabrics for my online fabric shop I discovered this gorgeous rich stretch velvet that was available with matching rib in several colours. The idea for this project immediately started to form.
I think its a style that looks good across all age groups and sizes and timeless enough to stick around in your wardrobe for a few seasons. I have a few plans to make some different versions in other fabrics. Of course I will be sharing these makes on this blog.
I would love to see your version if you make this project and hear how you got on making it. You can share directly on my facebook page or send me an email and I will share on social media.
