We love it when our cover patterns come together to form an outfit, and issue 79’s projects do just that. The Wrap Dress is our cover project this issue and can be made with multiple sleeve and skirt lengths. It’s designed for comfy knits and can be easily styled for different seasons. 

Wrap dress from Simply Sewing issue 79

We’ve also included the pattern for the Carrie Cardigan from Delia Creates in issue 79 which would look lovely draped over the Wrap Dress. Make this up in a chunky fabric with drape for a cosy wraparound, or make it in a floaty, lightweight fabric for a spring/summer layer. 

Complete the look with The Twiggy Tote, a bold, stylish bag from Anna Alicia. The vibrant print and colours paired with the fabric paper base make this bag anything but basic.

You’ll also find inside this issue:

  • A sweet pony toy
  • A feature all about sewing for positivity
  • A pair of patternless wide-leg trousers
  • Six makes for a spring refresh
  • An upcycled blanket cape
