New Year giveaway!

I’ve got something very special in store for you guys today! It’s a fabric giveaway! (What better way to start off the new year than with some free fabric, eh?)

So towards the end of last year I did a little bit of blogging for and made these…

One fabric three ways!

I used a gorgeous brick coloured linen/tencel/ cupro mix fabric and I made a Butterick 5652 jumpsuit, a McCall’s 7813 midi wrap skirt and a Closet Case Kalle shirt dress.

Check out the full post here!

I was surprisingly economical with my fabric usage and ended up with 4 whole yards of uncut fabric!

Which I would very much like to gift to one of you!

To be in with a chance of winning just leave a comment below saying what you’d make with the fabric! (Check back here after the closing date as I’ll leave a reply to your comment if you’ve won!).

The giveaway will open from today until Friday 11th January. The winner will be chosen at random after it closes. I’m happy to send this worldwide so please feel free to join in no matter where you are!

For more chances of winning, head over to my Instagram page!

Good luck!



  1. That skirt is beautiful, I’d be tempted to make a copy, but as I got the Closet Case Charlie pattern for Christmas I think I’d make that x

  2. I would love to make an Inari tee dress from Named patterns. I simply love this colour and all your makes… so talented!

  3. Love the skirt – I think it would be perfect for a @truebias #salidaskirt or even the @sewoverit #katedress ❣️

  4. Hi! loved the result of that shirtdress, it’s awsome. I’m currently inlove with the Anna from By Hand London,i would love to try it with this fabric. Cheers!

  5. I’ve got a mcalls dress pattern that’s been sat unmade for ages that I think would look great in this. Think is the M7381. Although, I’d probably get more wear from a long sleeved shirt (your Kalle is lovely).

  6. Hi, I would make the Pauline Alice Sorell trousers which, if the fabric’s 150cm wife, only takes just over 2m, so someone else could use the rest (if you were happy to cut it). 😊

  7. That colour is amazing! I would make a Colette negroni shirt for my partner, he needs a bit more colour in his wardrobe.

  8. Hmmm I think I’d make a Sew Over It Charlotte Dress butbthat skirt pattern is really calling to me! Keep up the great work.

  9. I’d either make a swishy shirt (maybe the Sewaholic Gabriola) or a pair of swishy trousers, pattern tbd (although the upcoming Scroop patterns one looks interesting).

  10. Beautiful makes for this fabric Emily! I would use it for making a Wiksten Kimono for my husband. He announced last night (as he was watching me preparing to make mine!) that he would like one too and because his will need to be an XL long – it’s going to take quite a gulp of fabric 🙂 Thank you for posting your makes with this lovely fabric – this warm colour suits your colouring perfectly!

  11. Hey there I would make some culottes either Helen’s closet winslow version or Megan Neilsen Tania. I have both. 🙂

  12. Such a stunning color!!! I’d definitely make a jumpsuit with it… probably made for mermaids mama Megan.

  13. I would make wide leg pants or culottes, or a jumpsuit like yours. Or maybe a shirt dress. Or a skirt and a blouse… So many options for this gorgeous fabric.

  14. I love all your makes! I think I would make a Named Helmi Tunic with the fabric. As that wouldn’t use all the fabric then I would also make some culottes with the rest.

  15. I need to learn your ninja fabric cutting ways girl!! 😍 I’d make some ninni culottes or a Hadley long sleeved top! Love this color 👌🏽✨

  16. Wow you really showcased this fabric with your beautiful makes. I LOVE the color. I picked two of the patterns on this year’s “to make” list – View D – the drapey pants from Simplicity 8389 and Simplicity 8791 wrap blouse, any version. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  17. Love your makes, I would make a dress and pants for summer with croped top form burda magazines… That would be such a great adition to my wardrobe in that color who happens to be in my color palette…

  18. Oh, that fabric is beautiful 😍, and I have just been looking at Tencel ! I would make Vogue 8577 and I’m sure it would be fabulous. Thank you for your generosity 😃

  19. I would make pants. I’ve never made a pair with a zipper so it would be a great learning experience. Thanks for offering this!

  20. Hi Emily your makes are all beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I would make a shirt dress like a dusterduster, I have a Simplicity mimi g pattern that I love.
    Thanks for your generosity. I would love to get a gift of fabric from over the pond. Keep up the great sewing. You are such a lovely sewersewer, looking forward to your next post. Have a beautiful day.😊

  21. That fabric is gorgeous!! I’m honestly so inspired by your jumpsuit that if I won I would make a jumpsuit with the rust fabric! If there were any scraps left over I’d make an Ogden cami to bust all the leftovers – an Ogden would look so luxe with this fabric.

  22. Hello. I’d make a dpstudio pattern with it, probably the “600 blouse” thank you for this giveaway Emily!

  23. Happy New Year Emily. You’ve inspired me to attempt making the same jump suit as you. I love the colour and it looks great on you.

  24. Such lovely makes, the drape of the fabric is really showcased. I’d be wanting to do something similar, just can’t decide whether it will be a swishy dress or drapey trousers!

  25. Happy new year! That fabric is absolutely gorgeous, I would definitely consider a dress, either the A-Line Dress by the avid seamstress, or a hinterland dress by sew liberated 🙂 There would also maybe be enough left to get a D&D melilot shirt too <3

  26. I love the color of that fabric! I would prob make an oversized button-up shirt. Perhaps by sizing up and lengthening the Melilot pattern.

  27. i love the jumpsuit you made! i’d make a similar one using the free peppermint jumpsuit as a base, or a pair of sew liberated arenite pants.

  28. Your makes are all lovely. I think would make a Jessica dress but change the gathered skirt for a quarter circle skirt.

  29. This fabric looks like it’d make a great summer dress….though I really love the jumpsuit you made. Maybe I would try that instead.

  30. Hi Emily, I’d make the True Bias Lander pant. I really love the skirt you’ve made but I don’t think it would suit me.

  31. Gorgeous fabric—one of my favourite colours too! I’d make my first shirtdress. I’m still on the fence about patterns, but perhaps the Edith dress by Maria Denmark.

  32. Happy new year, and thanks for the giveaway! I love the autumnal colour of that fabric. I think I’d pop my jumpsuit cherry with it (possibly the one from the Breaking the Pattern book) but I’m very tempted by your skirt. Gorgeous!

  33. I guess this would pair great with Simplicity Pattern 8060 Misses’ Jumpsuits from Mimi G Style. I definitely need a boiler suit!

  34. I’m starting a college course in a fortnight and this would be fantastic to use on the shirt we will be making. I only starting machine sewing in July so I’m really excited to learn to make more than bags. I love the colour of this and if I was lucky enough to win this I would share it with my friend Ka-Ho Leung who is a bespoke tailor xx

  35. Thank you for the giveaway Emily. All those outfits look great on you. The colour is lovely. I would make a pair of Butterick 6178 culottes and a Simple Sew Zoe dress. Fingers crossed!

  36. Oh my how exciting – I love how versatile the fabric looks in your three projects. I think I’d make the Calyer Pants from French Navy. The farbric looks like just the right weight and shape for them, plus this color would coordinate perfectly with many of my me-made tops!

  37. I would make a Rushcutter Dress or The Teahouse Dress. I’m dying to make something in this type of fabric. Your creations are beautiful!

  38. Love this colour! I’ve been wanting to give the burnside bibs a go and I think they’d look great in this colour

  39. Love what you’ve done with it! I have a vintage duster coat in my make nine list this would be perfect for!

  40. The fabric content sounds excellent and the colour is beautiful. With 4 yards I’d go for a Zinnia Skirt and maybe a woven Myrtle dress, or a 1940’s Tea Dress.

  41. I would make the Folkwear Chupa! Or possibly something from my stash of vintage patterns, like Simplicity 8430, a mini dress from 1969 with flared sleeves and a dog ear collar.

  42. Hello! Loving your jumpsuit – I think I’d use the fabric to make a jumpsuit too. Thinking a Tilly and the Buttons Marigold.

  43. Hello! Definitely loving your jumpsuit, so I think I would make a jumpsuit too. I’d probably start with the Tilly Marigold and go from there!

  44. Love the colour, you look great 👌🏻 I would make a Thread Theory Fairfield Shirt for my husband and a Sew Over It cami top for me.
