Summer serves up a fresh wave of sartorial inspiration, with effortless, loose-fitting silhouettes coming to the fore. As the weather shifts, fabrication is key, so we called upon seamstress Barbara Bass to create a collection of seasonal staples from our bestselling Tana Lawn designs. A cotton that behaves like silk, Tana Lawn is cool, breathable and the ideal base for brilliant prints. Follow Bass’s lead and sew your own this season….
“Fashion is shifting nowadays. I think It’s more about creating your own unique style. The general vibe for this season is mixing classic silhouettes with futuristic modern style.”
“Choose good quality fabrics, it makes a big difference how your finished garment will fall and look.”
“I do a lot of research. Inspiration is everywhere. I catch myself analysing an interesting garment on a person standing next to me on a train.”
“Take your time on neat finishes and enjoy the process of making - the result is always gratifying to be able to create something unique!”
“Most of these garments can be done in a day or two as the patterns aren’t complicated and detailed instructions are included in the pack.”
