The Anneka Tunic

York School of Sewing - The Veronika Dress - Simple Sew Patterns

The Anneka Tunic is an iconic tunic shape, inspired by the clean lines of Nordic design. As simple as it first appears, there are opportunities to really stamp your mark on this design.

You could use contrasting pocket fabrics and co-ordinating bias binding for the neckline and armholes. Not only that, this dress is equally relevant for all seasons. Why not make Anneka in a warm and cosy wool blend with a full bamboo silk lining, or for summer try a beautiful cool linen?

The Juliette Tie-Back Blouse

York School of Sewing - The Veronika Dress - Simple Sew Patterns

Juliette is an ideal starter pattern and introduction to our Simple Sew pattern range.

You will find this style extremely wearable and easy to make. Juliette has a flattering tie-back feature that works well with drapey fabrics with some fluidity, such as viscose or bamboo silk.

For the more advanced seamstress making this style, you could try a liquid satin or a silk. In fact, anything with gentle drape will show off this style and your figure to perfection.

The Lula Top

York School of Sewing - The Veronika Dress - Simple Sew Patterns

Lula is an urban-inspired design that's perfect for the modern woman. We love the box shaping of this top and also the versatility with which the collar can be worn to give you either an edgy modern look or worn flat on the chest as a more traditional, but still striking, feature collar.

Very easy to sew up, this is an ideal beginner pattern for a very modern seamstress.

York School of Sewing - The Veronika Dress - Simple Sew Patterns

A wardrobe staple, the Nicole dress is utilitarian in style and simple in statement. A no nonsense, functional design for those stitchers who appreciate that, in style terms at least, less can often mean more.

Try using a contrast thread with a dark denim, or light chambray. The pocket can be added in different fabric to the main shell for added contrast.

The Trench Coat

York School of Sewing - The Veronika Dress - Simple Sew Patterns

This lovely, unlined Pleated Trench Coat, is catwalk inspired, and we think you might agree that fabric wise, this is the most versatile coat you could make for the Autumn/Winter season and even moving into Spring depending on the weather.

There is a pleated skirt and separate bodice construction with this coat, it is similar to sewing up a wrap dress in many ways. The collarless lapels are satisfyingly easy to sew up with just a simple facing to negotiate and the odd pivoted corner to turn around, in addition the pockets require concentration, but really for a coat, this is a comparatively quick sew.

Make it in breathable waterproof fabrics, heavyweight cotton, suiting, tweed, taffeta, denim or boiled wool.

You will love these trousers because in comparison to a front fly fastening they really are a doddle to sew up.
