After a burst of surprise sunshine, we’re feeling a little glum with the return of the wet weather!

Which is why we’re on a mission to turn that frown upside down and create a capsule collection of storm proof Simplicity makes, transforming the drab weather into something fab.

Here’s our pick of 4 fabulous Simplicity patterns, that’ll keep you looking stylish – whatever the weather!



Creative cover ups

If you have to wear a coat, then make sure it adds to your outfit. Mimi G’s flair for fashion makes this Simplicity 1016 pattern a firm favourite – with six different pattern pieces, including a removable cape, with collar and epaulettes – available in miss, petite and plus sizes.

The Easy-to-Sew coat

Chosen by GBSB’s May Martin as one of her favourite Simplicity patterns, this 1254 Simplicity coat is a wardrobe staple – for days when those grey clouds aren’t set to brighten up. Created by another independent designer, Leanne Marshall, this pattern is as dramatic as it is stylish, with an over-sized collar, which can be worn as a shawl or a hood for extra warmth.
