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

What a lovely Martha blouse – that butterfly print looks fantastic!

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

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.

New project: Jean jacket! This is the pattern which is drafted from my #msp_gabi block using apparelarts_oak’s craftsy course for guidance. I’m going to sew this up in a cheap denim I got yards and yards of on clearance to see if these pieces will even equal “jacket” before cutting into the good stuff. Will post updates, hopefully this weekend!
