This is the first jumper I've made with a knit fabric and it was a lot more straightforward than I thought it was going to be! It only has 3 pattern pieces and it was easy to fit into this Leopard White/Grey Knit Jacquard (which is quite narrow at 88cm wide).

Looking for some sewing inspiration? I love seeing what everyone makes with their Grid Fabrics purchases, so I thought I'd share a few things I've been working on recently in case you need some ideas for your next project. I've tried to include a few pictures of me wearing the clothing items, but they're all selfies! #LockdownProblems
Rayon is the perfect choice for this floaty cami top and the Night Sky Rayon has a pretty, delicate print.
The Ogden Cami is one of those sewing patterns that looks more complicated than it is and the instructions are excellent. It's great for an advanced beginner and any of our Viscose/Rayon fabrics would work well.
Recently I decided to try my hand at Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) and I've started with a few blocks of the incredible Trinket Quilt from Alison Glass.
Choosing colour combinations from the Pluses and Crosses Fat Quarter Bundle has been excellent fun - I think this rainbow stripe block is my favourite so far! We've got lots of fat quarter bundles in the shop if you need some inspiration.
The back is a bit longer than the front and the semi-high collar is very cute!
I can't wait to make another one, I want to make one in every colour we have of this Leopard Knit Jacquard (and maybe the tiger version too!)
The Zadie Jumpsuit is one of my favourite patterns to sew and this version I made in our Pyramidi Colours Viscose Twill is so easy to wear (and, more importantly, easy to sew!).
I love the colours and drape in this brushed twill, it looks great as a lightweight jumpsuit.
Another of my favourite patterns, the LB Pullover is so quick to make I've now made four! I halved the height of the collar for this Honeycomb Waffle version and added a cute CMYK Patch and I wear it a lot.
This pattern is really versatile - you can make it in woven or knit fabric.
What do you think you're going to make next? Let us know! If you make anything from any of our fabric, we would LOVE to see it: tag us on Instagram or drop us an email!
