holiday sewing for women

The weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter. This time of year we are looking forward to retreating indoors and spending more time in front of our sewing machines. It is the perfect time of the year to start thinking about holiday sewing for women. Today we’ve got some holiday inspiration for you that use the Liesl + Co. and Lisette sewing patterns.

If you are learning how to sew with a sewing machine, we have a post about starting out with Liesl + Co. patterns. It offers a bit of advice with a list of suggestions of clothing items to sew for yourself. A good place to begin would be with the Everyday Skirt. Check out this beautiful bronze Everyday Skirt.

You could easily pair the Hollywood Trousers with a Rush Hour Blouse in Christmas red.

Liesl made herself a fancy Rush Hour Dress. To make it a little more fancy, she added some texture to the front and dropped the neckline. Interested in adding a pleated or ruched front? Liesl shares a tutorial that will show you how to do it.

The Lisette for Butterick B6589 would be great for fancy parties or dinners out. And it would be stunning in velvet as a holiday dress, don’t you think?
