Lace Shirred Blouse

Wide cotton lace adorns the sleeve edges, hem and front opening of this feminine blouse. The sleeves are drafted in a square so you can change the amount of shirring as you wish. Wear the blouse with vividly colored tank or camisole to add a playful glimpse of color to your styling.

how to make it → p.36-37


Tiered Sleeveless Dress

This tiered dress is made by adding rows of material to the body section. The added parts feature tucks, not darts, with the concave and convex contrast creating an interesting sense of rhythm. Add as many rows to the skirt as you need, depending on your height.

how to make it → p.38-40


Gauze Stripe Over-blouse

This blouse is made as per dress b, but with fewer rows and with sleeves added. The gauze material is thicker than the dobby used for the dress, and I wanted to bring out more volume in the silhouette, so I've slightly increased the number of tucks.

how to make it → p.41


Blocked Quilting Zip-up Jacket

Smart, classy and functional—this winter jacket ticks all the boxes. I’ve attached a lining to the one I’ve made, although you can make it without. But please give the pockets a go—they’re so handy, you’ll definitely be glad to have them.

Zip-up Vest with High Neck
