It’s time for back-to-school sewing, and the Autumn 2020 issue of Classic Sewing is full of wonderful projects! There are gift ideas, garments, appliqués, and smocking galore for your sewing fun. The cover garment is a traditional tartan plaid dress, and inside the magazine are both stylish school fashions and comfy play clothes, too. If you love smocking, appliqué, and embroidery, you will find fall motifs of leaves, acorns, scarecrows, pumpkins, apples, and even a sassy spider to make your sewing fun. Take a look below at the three garments included in this issue’s pattern envelope:
Featured on the cover, Celia is a garment that is versatile for your sewing needs. The bodice inset can be customized as shown with tucks, or the inset space is large enough for a cute monogram. The front skirt can be pleated or gathered—your choice. This creative pattern from Nona Pontiff will be one of your all-time favorites. The pattern includes sizes 4-12.
Joy Welsh knows that back-to-school time always calls for apples—especially when appliquéd on this dress, which features big apples for the pockets and tiny apples for the collar. And as an added bonus, it has the most wonderful circular skirt that is perfect for twirling! The pattern includes sizes 4-8.
Gail Doane has designed My Favorite School Blouse & Pants—an outfit that is sure to be a favorite not only because it is comfortable to wear, but also because it is darling. All the signature Gail Doane details are there: small ruffles, piping, and a bow. The pattern includes sizes 4-10.
In addition to these patterns, this new issue includes many more sewing projects. Serge, sew, smock, embroider, and appliqué—this issue gives you a plethora of ideas for fall!
