Maker's Showcase: December

It's now 2020 but let's look back on some of the gorgeous creations that were shared in December. We are extremely excited to see more and more bloggers and makers join the Simplicity Hack-Along and we have gathered a few of our favourites here. We also threw in some other not-to-be-missed makes in the mix so you have plenty of inspiration to get those creative juices flowing!

Take a look at all these amazing makes...

If Christmas we're a dress then this would be it! Made by the super talented @jorthknits using the Vogue 8184 for the Melbourne Frocktails. We think it's pretty fabulous.

On the hack along this week we've got a beautiful one from @handmadebycarolyn. She's hacked the 8658 top into a really fantastic dress. All in support of The Eve Appeal.

What a jolly dressing gown @katiekortmanart made using the McCalls 7912 which is actually a jacket pattern but works so well having been lengthened! We love the print on the fabric and she only went and designed it herself!!

Up on our hack-along this week we've got a FANTASTIC dress from The Little Pomegranate who hacked the Simplicity 8888. We love the fabric she's used, and think you'll agree the end result is fab! All in support of The Eve Appeal.

This week on our hack-along challenge we have the most fantastic make from @selfassemblyrequired who'd taken the S8888 and completely transformed it into this beautiful dress that has sleeves to die for. All in support of The Eve Appeal.

We're absolutely loving this dress made by @abby_sews, apparently it's known as her 'turkey dress' because of the colour. We'd love to be sitting down to Christmas dinner wearing this - anyone else? For those wondering it's Vogue Pattern V9197.

@suzannemade has made a fabulous dress and screams DISCO. Anyone looking for a something to whip up before New Year's eve then check out the Vogue 9253.

I think the phrase 'go big, or go home' seems rather appropriate for this make! @melishasimonecollection has made the most beautiful version of a vintage McCalls pattern 8235.
