The Spring Issue of Classic Sewing is centered around dresses and outfits that are perfect for Easter and special occasions. The lightweight, soft-colored fabrics used in the garments offer ideas for creating one-of-a-kind outfits. Gail Doane, Cheryl Clapp, and Trisha Smith are the designers of the garments in the pattern envelope. Gail has created a splendid smocked flower girl dress, while Cheryl Clapp has created a unique Button-on Collar Dress. Trisha Smith’s Mandarin Collar Shirt for boys will be a hit this season.
“Bunnies Galore” best describes this issue, and there are instructions and downloads for smocked bunnies and appliquéd bunnies—always a favorite for spring. Smocking is another seasonal favorite, and you’ll find so many creative designs presented.
This treasure trove of spring sewing will delight sewists, regardless of the skill level or experience.
