Fibre Mood is bringing sewing class to your living room!

Social Sew Along

Social Sew Along is here to stay!

What started out as an experiment to provide you all with a (much needed) distraction during tough times, has bloomed into a weekly, super cosy sewing get-together. The enthusiasm only grew as the weeks went by, which is why we’re pleased to announce that there will be more Social Sew Alongs!

At the end of each month, we’ll be adding a new pattern to the Social Sew Along Menu. You'll have two weeks to download the pattern at a nice price by entering the #socialsewalong code.

The English language session will be on Instagram Live, as usual. Kate (@timetosew) will take you through each step of the pattern on Fridays, from 8.30 to 10.30 p.m. CET

Psst. Fancy an international sewing lesson? On Mondays we’ll be sewing Spanish, on Tuesdays in German, Wednesdays will be in French and Thursdays are for Dutch!

NEXT UP: Ida Top - Friday 27/08 - 20h30 CET

XS - XXXL

Looking to expand your wardrobe with a true gem that's a breeze to make? With a loose cut and two V necklines – Ida's your pattern. Ida has a shallow V at the back and a deeper one at the front and both are finished with facings. Don’t care to feel that exposed at the front, or would you simply like to show off a little more back? Just wear the top 'backwards’! Honestly, life can be so simple if you let it be. And Ida is simplicity personified, with straight cuffs that give it an understated, yet charming touch. Pair it with high-waisted trousers or a calf-length skirt or... lengthen it into a comfy dress!

Fabric advice

Ida can be made in just about any fabric, it will suit a stiffer option like denim or fabric with a fluid drape – think viscose or polyester crepe, etc. From pastels and neutrals to a bright splash of colour to a funky design – just go wild! If your heart is set on using a knit, be sure to select one that has enough body and isn’t too flimsy. Interlock and French Terry are two good options.

Hettie Skirt - Friday 24/07 - 19 h CET

32 - 58 (EU)   0 - 26 (US)   4 - 30 (UK) 

The romantic Hettie skirt makes up beautifully in a light or medium weight fabric with fluid drape. Think crepe, satin, chiffon etc. Fabrics with more body like cotton and linen also work well, just keep in mind that the gathers will be more pronounced with the extra volume! Make it up in solid colours, ditsy florals or cotton eyelet.

Fabric advice

The romantic Hettie skirts look lovely in a light- or medium weight fabric with a fluid drape. Think crepe, satin, muslin, chiffon, etc. Somewhat stiffer fabrics such as cotton, linen, etc. also work. Just keep in mind that the ruffles will be a little more pronounced. The Hettie skirt looks sweet in solid, delicate print and eyelet fabrics.

Rosalie dress - Friday 10/07 - 7 PM CET

XS - XXXL

Every summer needs a brand new dress. Make the most of your summer tan and pedicure with this babydoll dress that is sure to turn heads. The deep V-neck highlights your neckline and décolletage, while the ruffled sleeve adds a touch of romance. Rosalie can be styled with strappy sandals, heels or sneaekers. If you aren’t really comfortable with a roomy fit be sure to make the dress a size smaller. 

Fabric advice

Blends that include cotton, poplin or linen have just the right amount of 'body' to give Rosalie that playful volume. If you have more of a flowing dress in mind, select a (silk)satin or a crepe instead – basically any fabric that has a lovely fluid drape.

Lola top - Friday 26/06 - 19 h

32 - 58 (EU)   0 - 26 (US)   4 - 30 (UK) 

Are you a romantic soul easily tempted by retro vibes? If so, you and Lola are – without a doubt – long-lost kindred spirits. But if you want to be reunited, you'll need to be up to the challenge. This project isn’t for the faint of heart... Your efforts are sure to be rewarded though with an incredibly stylish top that looks utterly charming when paired with trousers, skirts and culottes. Lola features a high, round neckline, ruffles (feel free to double the amount!), a unique open back (with elastic for a comfy, but attractive fit) and a cute tie-back.

There’s only one word for it – wow!

Fabric advice

The Lola top looks stunning in delicate cotton, whether plain or in a subtle pattern or texture. Linen is also definitely a shoo-in. However, our personal recommendation for this pattern is... chambray!

Vienna dress - Friday 12/06

32 - 58

Wrap dresses are an absolute must for this season! That means wearing the Vienna guarantees that you'll be well on top of this elegant trend. Even better, you don’t have to wrap it every time you put it on, because the wrap has been stitched into place at the waist. It doesn’t get more convenient than that. Vienna is a short sleeve, striped long dress. 

Fabric advice

Use a fabric with a fluid drape for this dress and avoid stiff fabrics. Fabrics with a striped pattern make an even more interesting look.

Jutta skirt - Friday 29/05

XS - XXXL

Jutta is an A-line skirt with very comfortable slit pockets. The chord used to close the skirt gives your waist a striking touch. It falls to just below the knee and has the option to be worn fitted on the waist or loose around the hips.
Jutta will take you from beach to bar, all season long!

Fabric advice

We made this skirt in a fabric with a fluid drape (viscose/crepe, silk, etc.). However, fabrics with some body such as cotton or linen work just as nicely and the extra volume will turn the skirt into a statement piece.

Dale Sweater: Friday 14/05

2 - 14 years

Here's a jumper with personality, for brothers and sisters. The Dale's raglan sleeves provides enough wiggle room for the little ones. The hem and neckline are finished in soft rib fabric, so this jumper looks sporty but feels great on.
We know this staple piece will become one of their favourites!

Fabric advice

A good jumper has to be made up in the right sweatshirt material for feel and ease of wear. Think French terry or neoprene, fabrics with stretch and not too much drape work the best here.

Toni dress: Friday 07/05

XS - XXXL

A loose, straight dress, with a rise just above the knee with half-length raglan sleeves, a round neckline and side pockets in the side seam. It's elegant in its simplicity. If you opt for a ribbon on the side seam, you'll end up with a more sporty look.

Recommended fabrics

The Toni Dress must be made using a tricot fabric.

Depending on the look you want, you can use various types of fabrics.

We used a black interlock fabric. Interlock (e.g. Punta di Roma) is a double-knit tricot that looks the same on both the front and the back. The fabric is heavier and stiffer than single jersey, which is only one layer, and is slightly elastic.

6. Mira dress: Friday 01/05

32 - 58

Mira is a hip little, loose-cut A-line summer dress. Interested in something a little more form-fitting? Make the bands slightly narrower so that there’s less fabric to ruffle. Do you dream about romantic dresses? Try sewing decorative ribbons between the seams. Or go for a longer version using our no-hassle technique for lengthening patterns

Fabric advice

Use a light fabric for the Mira dress such as a cotton (either textured or with a subtle print) or go for something ultra feminine with lace, broderie anglaise, voile, etc. Pick something white to add an extra romantic touch.

5. Norma blouse: Friday 25/04

32 - 58 (EU)   0 - 26 (US)   4 - 30 (UK) 

Sleeves that stand out are in! And Norma knows that being big can be better. The lavish three-quarter length balloon sleeves are full at the shoulders, have puffed wrists and gathered seams. This original short V-neck blouse effortlessly steals the show when paired with a high waisted skirt, jeans or trousers.

Fabric advice

All kinds of fabrics work, but it goes without saying that your statement sleeves will stand out more in a stiffer fabric, such as poplin, raw silk, nylon, organza, etc. Also, organza blouses worn with a spaghetti strap top underneath are a huge trend right now. Would you still prefer a lighter fabric? You can turn the Norma into something a little flowier and less ‘big’ by choosing a cotton voile, muslin or a thin viscose.

4. Charlotte Dress: Friday 17/04

32 - 58 (EU)   0 - 26 (US)   4 - 30 (UK) 

Go West, young ladies, in the Charlotte wrap dress. A simple top with long sleeves means no nonsense, but the romantic ruffles on the skirt keep Charlotte looking divinely feminine. The neckline is finished with facing.
Charlotte does her own thing in both the long and short versions. How much leg do you want to show?

Fabric advice

Go for a woven fabric with a fluid drape, such as crepe, linen, satin, Tencel or muslin. Plain fabric or a print? You can’t go wrong!

3. Benita trousers: Friday 9/04

32 - 58 (EU)   0 - 26 (US)   4 - 30 (UK) 

Simple and comfortable, the Benita trousers will be your go-to this winter! These easy wearing trousers feature an elasticated waistband and straight leg. As far as length and style go, there are options galore: casual or chic, full length or cropped culottes...anything goes! Add flair with a festive bow at the waistband.

Fabric advice

Depending on the look you want, there are a variety of fabric options to choose from. For an athleisure look, use stable interlock, French terry or sweatshirt knit. Elevate Benita to evening wear with a velour jersey, ribbed jersey or even a woven crepe with a print. Choose a fabric that moves with the body.

2. Cory T-shirt: donderdag 2/04

2 - 14 years

Cory is a unisex boat neck T-shirt and a must have for every wardrobe. The sleeves can be worn rolled up into cuffs. Get creative with the grainline on the chest pocket
or use a contrasting fabric to add your own twist on the Cory.

Why not make the Afra T-shirt for mum and the Hugo T-shirt for dad out of the the
same fabric = matching outfits for the whole tribe!

Fabric advice

The Cory T-shirt pattern is designed for stretch knits only. Viscose jersey, cotton jersey, French terry, stretch velvet and neoprene are all great options.

1. Afra T-shirt: donderdag 26/03

XS - XXXL

Audrey Hepburn was already in love with the elegant boat neck in the 1950's. Brigitte Bardot continue the affair and we've been head over heels ever since. That's why we designed the Afra for you. This top is simple, classic and timeless.

Made up in a striped jersey, there's no doubt that Afra will be besties with your jeans! The only limit to what you can do with Afra is your imagination.

Fabric advice

Make the Afra T-shirt in jersey. Viscose jersey, cotton jersey, French terry, etc. are all good options. Do keep in mind that this pattern is only intended for stretch fabric and not wovens.
