When the cool breezes of Autumn announce the change of seasons, our thoughts turn to sewing projects for this colorful season. Our 2017 Autumn Issue of Classic Sewing is chock-full of exceptional garment patterns, designs for hand and machine embroidery, smocking plates and much more – with over 40 projects this is the best issue yet! The cover garment is Gail Doane’s jacket and dress that is suitable for cooler days. Kathy Dykstra’s Reverse Appliqué is the perfect pattern for the last remaining warm days. All three patterns are in the separate pattern envelope packaged with the magazine. There are four additional patterns available for download including a boys shirt with coordinating pants, an adorable bishop-style dress and Lezette Thomason’s shaped-yoke smocked dress.
