Winter sewing inspiration
If it's cooling down where you are in the world, it can be a great time to get cosy in your sewing area and whip up some winter warmers!
We've got plenty of pants, and outerwear patterns to keep you warm but there's also some easy ways to winter-ise some of our patterns that you might think of as warm-weather numbers!
Want summer things? Check out this summer roundup with inspirational makes from the community (including lots of our pants made into shorts)!

Cool weather pants
It's fair to say that we love pants! If you love pants too, we've certainly got options for you! We've got our tapered Birchgrove Pants, our wide-leg Glebe Pants, our Noice Jeans (which Leila is wearing above), side-pocket Sculthorpe Pants, and the diagonal side-seam Willandra Pants.
Cosy tops and shirts
We've got lots of tops which work for both summer and winter- depending on the fabric chosen! Our Huon Shirt & Dress, Tarlee T-Shirt, Torrens Box Top, Waikerie Shirt & Dress can all easily move between the seasons.
Our Tarlee can be made from with short-sleeves and a crewneck for summer, or the long-sleeve turtleneck version can keep you cosy in winter! Above, Leila wears a turtleneck Tarlee in merino from A+R Fabrics.
Wool and silk have especially lovely qualities which make them great for cool weather. A Waikerie or Huon Shirt in a silk would be lovely, and a Tarlee T-Shirt could be layered underneath for extra warmth. A wool gauze, or silk noil Torrens Box Top would also make for extra luxurious cool-weather options which could be layered over a Tarlee.
