The heatwave is still going strong in the UK, and after a couple of stormy days, the 29 degree temperatures are back with a vengeance. We’re coping the best way we know how, so it’s all about sewing on demand these days. “It’s going to be 34 degrees tomorrow. Quick! Better sew some shorts tonight!” Of course we’re all turning to the sewing community for inspiration, and our favourite place to see what you’re all making is naturally Instagram. A quick browse of the #SOIshowoff hashtag and you’ll have dozens of new things in your to-make queue!
This month our #SOIshowoff prize is awarded to the hugely prolific Adri and her Emmeline Skirt! When we designed the Emmeline Skirt pattern we imagined it in floral lawns and ditsy rayons; it was always going to be girly. But in this semi-structured khaki solid, Adri’s completely reinvented it. With the plain white t-shirt, bright red sandals and of course a red lip, it looks incredibly chic and effortless. This is an everyday wardrobe done right!
Congratulations Adri, we love it! A £20 voucher for our online shop will be on its way to you soon!
