The sun is out – well, on most days 🙂 – and spring is in the air. Away with the chunky knits and wooly sweaters and in with the fresh frocks, bare legs and spring sewing.
Let us the official start the Sewing (Bee) Season!
Are you enjoying watching the journeys of the wonderful sewers from the Great British Sewing Bee? We certainly are!
To celebrate sewing and the lovely people who inspire us to try new things and constantly challenge ourselves, we are going to have a surprise topic, each week, here at Sewbox. There will be giveaways, tips inspiration and some more surprises we’ll let you know about as soon as we can!
This week, we’re all about skirts! Pick your favourite pattern and leave a comment below to tell us why you like it and which fabric you’d choose and we’ll pick two lucky winners on Monday evening 23May, before Episode 2 and send them the skirt sewing patterns they chose from our website. We’ve recently published a roundup of our favourite skirt patterns, take a look.
