- I had a lovely few hours @sew_in_the_city today teaching these 5 lovely eager students how to make the Derwent trousers from my book Beginner's Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics. They were all super happy (and a few a bit surprised) that they were going home with comfortable, well-fitting trousers that they wanted to wear. Just some hems and elastic to finish, not bad for 4.5 hrs work! 👏👏👏Obviously my trip to @fabworksmillshop today yielded treasure ❤ top down: #heartofhuddersfield Pumpkin Wine Yorkshire Melton, Evening Mist Marled Melton, Thunderbridge Storm Marled Melton and Cross Hatch Sketch viscose/rayon lining. Their Heart of Huddersfield collection is a beautiful thing to behold. You really can't find that kind of quality wool, woven in Huddersfield at those prices anywhere else. I don't think they'll be around for long.......🍂🍁🍃 A/W sewing plans are go!!@songofthesewingmachine has 100% hit the early autumn sweetspot with this outfit featuring a dreamy #kindercardigan. Take a look at Josie's feed for more beautiful photos and details of how she made this super thrifty outfit ❤🧡💛👈 #destashsale in my stories right now and this is up for grabs along with a few other books and some top notch quality wool fabric......

At long last, the MIY Collection Walkley Vest & Dress is now available as a complete making kit.
The kit contains everything you need to make a vest or dress:
- printed pattern
- beautiful quality viscose/lycra ponte roma in a choice of 4 colours (enough to allow for shrinkage when you pre-wash your fabric)
- and matching thread.
All delivered straight to your door with free P&P (UK only) so you can just get sewing.
See inspiration for how to make the Walkley on this Pinterest board as well as links to blogger reviews of the pattern from Handmade Jane, Scruffy Badger Time, Paprika Patterns and more!

The MIY Collection Walkley Vest was originally made by Jane in November (see her original review of the pattern here).
I was then over the moon to see it included in Jane’s best makes for 2015! I think my favourite (apart from her stripey Walkley obviously!) is that black dress….gorgeous.
