Make room in your fashion sewers wardrobe. Winter is almost upon us and it’s time to make those coats, jackets and capelets.
It’s also party season. Time ladies to invest a little time into making that special dress to impress.
No matter the invite, no matter the occasion. As the year draws to a close, each and every one of us should give ourselves a gift, making sure our winter sewing projects remain a conversation piece, late into next year.
What’s Hot and What’s Not!

As we have already discovered, there is a constant between our fashionista and the seasonal trends and our sewing patterns that we regularly purchase.
We, as Sewingista are fortunate, that not only do our sewing patterns reflect a seasons style and trend, but we have the ability and skill to make these ‘high end, haute couture‘ pieces ourselves.
Our investment in time, saves us a great deal of money!
So, this winter, allow Fashion Sewing Blog to give you a helping hand to discover and source the latest looks that will no doubt be replicated in sewing patterns this year end.
This post has been a little difficult. After researching this subject matter, I have discovered that there is so much out there to choose from. Far to much in fact for one post. Therefore, use the information supplied as a taster.
After all – Part of the fun of fashion sewing is getting out there, making those little gems of a discovery and bringing the piece to life.

I do hope the video’s I have provided at the very least have given you food for thought.
It is my intention over this winter period, to make a coat, jacket, capelet and one or two party dresses as a series of sewing projects. I do hope you can join me.
Please do not be put off, thinking that these types of garment are well beyond a beginner fashion sewer – they’re NOT!!
Just look at some of my previous projects -
You’ll be amazed at how easy these wonderful, warm and professional looking pieces are to create.
So Tell Me -
