Colette Sewing Planner …

Colette describes the Planners as follows …..

Organize and prioritize your sewing queue for a unique me-made wardrobe!

This stylish and practical sewing planner is spiral bound with a wrap-around hard cover. Measuring 7X9 inches, it’s easy to carry with you to use whenever inspiration strikes.

What sets this planner apart is its versatility. Are you a visual person? Then draw your ideas on gridded sketch pages with the help of our croquis. Do you take notes while you sew? Then fill your book with fitting ideas that will help guide you with future projects.

Learn how to curate your own me-made wardrobe by setting goals for each season. The Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer sections each include pages for 25 different projects, so you can plan up to 50 projects each year. The planner will walk you through questions about your style and color palette to help you prioritize what to sew next.

There’s room to add fabric swatches, pouches to carry patterns or notions, and a handy resources section for quick reference and sewing tips. Six different sections will help you organize and track your progress each season, so you’ll always be ready for your next sewing project.

New Liberty needlecords at Sewbox …

Liberty cord Seventeen is a large dramatic print, quite different from the usual classic ditsy floral prints.

img_0874-2 img_0879-2

It looks amazing as a straight short skirt for autumn/winter .. so many colours to pick out for thick tights and tops.  We picked out the strong rasberry/purple with black boots for a warm and stunning look.

Liberty cord – Ianthe also makes up well into a festive skirt – at 140cm wide, just 1M made a skirt in Size 12 and it could have been much longer if you prefer. Lovely to sew, soft and light to wear – 100% cotton.


and what about Wiltshire for Christmas .. very cosy.


From £17.95/M.  Add a zip and lining and that makes a very reasonable and iconic Liberty skirt.

Happy Sewing
