Sew La Di Da - Paper Sewing Pattern - Miss Maguire Co-Ord
Sew La Di Da Vintage style sewing patterns are created in the UK by designer Caroline Smith.
Miss Maguire is a sophisticated three-piece jacket, top, and skirt pattern, with something of the Jackie O about her. The high-waisted skirt even has handy pockets for your oversized sunglasses!
Consisting of a skirt with waistband, a button-backed shell top (either sleeveless or long-sleeved) and an open-backed swing top to match, this is a really versatile pattern. Better yet, it's an ideal place to start if this is your first time using a pattern!
Miss Maguire suits most fabrics – stiffer silks, crepe and wool give her a smart, 60s look, whilst metallics and brocades bring her in line with modern trends, as does shortening the top to a cropped length or doubling the width of the waistband for an even higher rise on the skirt. The long-sleeved swing top, made up as a jacket, works especially well in lace, tulle or organza, especially when the open back is finished with a bow. This same jacket can be layered over several of other Sew La Di Da patterns as a flattering addition to sleeveless styles such as Audrey and Margo.
