It’s that time of the month when we share all the fantastic makes you’ve been sewing up for your handmade wardrobes.  As we head into November, it’s a great opportunity to look back over October and all the wonderful outfits you’ve made for Autumn. Don’t forget to share your latest makes with us on social media using the hashtags #simplicitybyme or #mccallsbyme

First up this month we have @cleocmc rocking one of our vintage reprints, a 60s Simplicity #S4294 and the dress is her 4th #S8591! They look totally gorgeous together.

This image hails from the emerald isle (it’s not called that for nothing!) @whatbecssews is sporting the most beautiful Simplicity 8551 dress. Oh can summer last forever?

What an amazing combo @chloe_kiser is wearing to go look at art! She’s wearing a McCalls 7358 on top and New Look 0602 on the bottoms. The matching fabric makes it look like a jumpsuit and we love it!

Next up is @salonmishawn who has taken the Burda Style 6833 to the next level! Check out the faux leather collar and matching sash.. basically this is on point!

Oh my days @_sierrasews_ halloween outfit is beyond cute. Fantastic Mrs Fox outfit has been made out of a Simplicity 6000 – Wes Anderson would be proud!

A big thank you to @gwenstellamade for reminding us that it is indeed summer somewhere.. this gorgeous combo is a Simplicity 1426 top and RTW bottoms. We love it!

@almondrock_sewswore the Simplicity 8594 on her honeymoon to the Seychelles.. and rocked it!

I love it when a pattern is made up in an unusual fabric choice. @thespiffytrunk has made the Simplicity 8418 bomber in an iridescent fabric inspired by one she’d seen at Balmain – it looks fantastic and the styling is on point!


Not only do we want to be wherever this photo of @jasminlucero was taken, we also want to be wearing her dress! It’s the McCalls #m7185 in a gorgeous floral print that has a bit of a vintage feel

Well we have to say that @raliat.oyinlola has knocked it out the park again with this beautiful version of the McCalls 6886 – it’s a great time to start planning your winter makes!

@commesew_commeca has made a beautiful floral jumpsuit McCalls 7789 we love the cut out detail on this make.

Maker inspiration comes from @angelinemurphydesign who’s colour blocked version of our Vogue Patterns 9021 looks totally amazing!

A super inspiring make today from @thanksimadethem who’s version of the McCalls 7654 is super chic and we love the fabric she’s used!

Serious Monday swoons over @beatricewinter Butterick 5030 – perfectly styled and the fit is spot on.
