The following patterns have been archived. They may be re-released in future but in the meantime they remain unavailable.
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.
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. I love to wear mine under a lightweight crew neck jumper – you get the crisp contrast collar without the imprint of a row of buttons down the centre front like you would with a shirt underneath, and it’s sleeveless so it’s a little cooler!
How will you wear yours? (The Catherine blouse was originally released under the Pearson and Pope sewing pattern brand so you may also see it tagged as #pp_catherine)
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.
The Martha blouse takes the basic shell top up a gear with striking contrast details. It is perfect for warmer weather, but equally suited to layering under a jacket or cardigan to combat the office A/C. (Martha was originally released under my Pearson and Pope pattern brand, so you may also see it tagged pp_martha). #msp_martha #sewingpattern…
@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 finished my shell top from the michellesews_patterns Martha blouse and I really love it! The fabric is a butterfly print silk charmeuse.🦋
The pattern instructions were excellent, very easy to follow, with several options for trim, and waist slimming darts. I chose to forgo the waist darts to make a breezy flowy top. Even without the waist darts this pattern has some very flattering shaping built in. 🦋
I made a few height adjustments including adding an inch in the shoulder, and two inches at the hem.
What I also like about this pattern is it doesn’t take much fabric to make. So if you have that one yard of special silk you’ve been holding on to, this is the pattern for you!🦋

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.
She’s coming this weekend! The Gabi Block pattern is a pattern for a bodice block that can be used as a starting point to draft tops and dresses. The instructions include advice on some common fitting adjustments and their corresponding pattern changes. If you’re up for the challenge of fitting a block pattern, and ready to make a toile or two, maybe the #msp_gabi will be right up your street!
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.
