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.

Junk the dress for a Jumpsuit
With jumpsuits making it on to Royal Ascot’s latest style guide, with women being allowed to wear the garment in the event’s most elite area, the jumpsuit has won pride of place on this season’s must have list.
Create New Look 6413 pattern, with a flattering v-neck and front zip detailing.
Whether your style is tomboy, bohemian, romantic or minimal – this timeless dress was a catwalk favourite, creating a layered look that’ll keep the chill away.
This easy to follow New Look 6449 pattern is great for stitchers looking to create a relatively quick make. And for limited time only it’s half price. What a steal!
