Claire Garside of Eliza M believes that beginner sewers should be able to find dressmaking patterns un-daunting and easy-to-use. She creates patterns for gorgeous vintage wear, as well as ready to wear collections.
This tartan A-line skirt was made to feature in Sew Magazine – and of course the fabric was supplied by trurofabrics.com!
If you’re not sure where to start, you can even buy a kit containing the fabric of your choice, fastenings, threads, and of course, one of Eliza M‘s great patterns.
So if you are new to sewing and aspire to that 50s style swing look, you can achieve it!
