3 of the best patterns for a casual Friday
Whether you want to sew up something comfortable for everyday wear, a simple top for a summer picnic or some secret pyjamas for a lazy day lounging at home, there’s a whole host of fabulous casual patterns to choose from. We’ve teamed up with our friends at Simple Sew to bring you some of their best casual patterns and a special offer just for the Love Sewing readers.
The Stylish Shell Top pattern is a versatile option with four different views to choose from. Keep things simple with a sleeveless vest top or play around with a host of colour-blocking options with separate yoke, sleeve and bottom panel variations.
To complete your ultimate casual outfit, why not pair up your top with the Lapwing Trousers? These easy-to-construct drawstring-waist trousers sit flatteringly just below the natural waist and drape gently to the floor. Jenny from the Wardrobe Architect has even produced a full photo step-by-step guide on how to make them.
If you’d rather whip up a casual tunic then the Nicole Dress is a good option. Its pinafore dress style makes it perfect for layering, so it’s a super option whatever the season. Why not try making the statement pockets in a contrast fabric for an added punch of colour.
