The UK’s Biggest Pattern House

Maker’s Showcase: November

It’s almost the end of November so we would like to look back at some of the beautiful creations we have shared over the past couple of weeks. It’s always great to see how a pattern is made up in a different fabric, on a different person, in a different style, so we hope you’ll be inspired by these makers. We have also included the patterns they have used (or a similar one) in case you are interested in making it yourself.

If you’re currently working on your own project, please don’t forget to share it with us on social media using the hashtags #simplicitybyme or #mccallsbyme. We love nothing more than following your sewing adventures.
