The Catherine Blouse

The Catherine blouse is an elegant and versatile take on the classic tie blouse. Its detachable tie can be worn tied in a number of ways, or not at all, and as a sleeveless blouse it is great both for layering and in warmer weather.

This Catherine blouse looks fabulous in red! #msp_catherine reposted with kind permission from @orangesews

@orangesews made another #msp_catherine blouse, this time with an accent fabric and I am 100% here for it! 😍

The Catherine blouse looks great worn together with the Agnes skirt. @sleepless_in_bavaria used a contrast fabric for the tie of her #msp_catherine top, and the dusky pink shade of her msp_agnes is the stuff of spring wardrobe dreams.

The Martha Blouse

The Martha blouse is an easy shell top with striking contrast details, perfect for warmer weather but equally suited to layering under a jacket or cardigan. Martha makes a versatile all-rounder for your wardrobe.

@frugalisama’s combination of the #msp_agnes skirt with the #msp_martha top has me like 😍😍😍 – love it!!! Thank you for the lovely feedback, too, Sam!
Do check out Sam’s original post as she also made a lovely matching jacket from the linen!

I made a jacket this weekend (New Look 6351) inspired by last weeks #greatbritishsewingbee2020. Obviously it’s not got the huge shoulder pads of the 80s but very similar otherwise, made from a piece of linen bought at Abakhan last year, which I also made the pencil skirt from that I’m wearing, which is the Agnes pattern by @michellesews_patterns formerly Pearson & Pope.
I noticed earlier this week that she had rebranded & wanted to give her a shout out as this is a beautifully drafted fully lined skirt with some lovely details, including pockets & a zip shield. The top is the Martha, also by @michellesews_patterns & another great well written pattern.
Who else is looking forward to international week on the 🐝 tonight? #gbsb2020 #sewingbee #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #memade #sewcialists #handmadewardrobe #sewingismysuperpower #isew #makersmovement #makedontbuy #lovesewing #sewing #sewsewsew #memadeeveryday #sewover50 #sewingchallenge #so50blog #so50reworn #b37w32h40

I think @dibsandthemachine looks absolutely fabulous in her #msp_martha top and beautiful skirt. Don’t you?

The Annie Skirt

The Annie skirt is a flattering skirt with plenty of movement – full enough to be feminine without being too much for the office. Make it up in crepe, or heavier wools, in anything from classic black or navy to a range of colours, florals and prints.


The Gabi Block

The Gabi bodice block is a great starting point for drafting your own designs.

When I first starting talking about the Gabi block pattern on Instagram, one common question was whether I would be sharing ideas about how you could use your block. The answer was an emphatic “yes”! I use mine often, for quick projects and drafting experiments. Here I show how I drafted this easy woven tee from my block. In the next part, I’ll show the simple sewing instructions too.
