100 Acts of Sewing

12 Jan


100 Acts of Sewing first started as a personal challenge of Sonya Philip to make 100 dresses in one year. Years later, this personal sewing project has grown into a challenge to us all to make more of our wardrobe. And, to inspire sewing, Sonya has designed a number of garment patterns with simple style lines and a modern look.


The 100 Acts of Sewing collection includes everyday patterns for Dresses, Tunics and Shirts and even a simple pair of pants. But our favourite part is the inclusive size range with some designs including XS – 4XL with a bust range from 32 inches to 53 inches.


For this post, we included fabric picks for 3 different patterns. It was easy to select fabrics, as the patterns are so well suited to show off your favourite fabrics. As fabric lovers, we know we won’t be able to stop sewing these great designs once we start!
