When I asked on instagram if these posts were useful for the links I got a resounding YES! so here it is, just for you. Included are all the links to the clothing items and patterns I included in my Reiss round up on Sunday.
I also thought it was worth mentioning why it is I include the links to the ready to wear clothing items too. As is evident from last weeks news that Warehouse and Oasis have gone into administration and closed down, the high street is struggling at the moment. Regardless of wether you buy pre-made clothes or not, I think we can all agree that it is sad news when companies who bring joy to people through their beautiful designs are forced to close and people lose their jobs.
Even though the focus of these round ups is giving you inspiration for handmade clothes, now more than ever I think it is important to give the companies who inspire these post the credit they deserve. So I shall continue to add links to the original item as well as the pattern and if you like the design but don’t want to make it yourself then there is no shame in buying it and supporting your high street. I know I have my eye on the Thora dress for upcoming weddings when they are eventually allowed to happen…
Silk camis are such a great throw on top which are comfortable to wear but still look smart. This sewing pattern is an easy dupe for the Reiss one. It’s also the perfect top for beginners to drapey fabrics.
Two Sew Over It patterns in one pattern round up. What can I say, they have a lot of great designs! With a little lengthening and a tie around the waist this would be a really good pattern to make the inspiration dress.
I love really classic take on the bomber jacket. There are lots of bomber jacket patterns out there but I think this has the most similar lines.
I’ve had my eye on this pattern for ages and I love this Reiss one in white. Maybe this is the final push I need to make it.
The new blouse pattern from Pattern union is super versatile and has the same keyhole detail as the inspiration top. If you wanted to leave off the tassels you could but I think they look fun.
Another option is the Rosemary blouse which has a really interesting neckline. Make it up in satin or cupro for to get that perfect sheen.
This is such a versatile pattern and has a really similar look to the Reiss dress. Also… it has pockets!
Wouldn’t this dress look amazing on holiday?! Even if that holiday is only to Costa del Tesco…
A kaftan isn’t just for the beach! It’s also great working from home attire as it is breezy and comfortable.
This is one of my favourite dress patterns. I’ve made it twice! I love how elegant it looks and think it is a great pattern to make a version of the Reiss this dress in.
Thank you for supporting my Get the Look series and I hope you feel inspired after reading this. Next weeks shop is Zara who won the vote with the biggest landslide yet.
