Sew Essential are offering a 10% discount to for the month of December with the code VINT10.

Sew Essential are currently offering half price on New Look, Simplicity and Burda Patterns. They have low postage costs and free postage for orders over £50.

I've just been learning how to fit a block pattern, so the first thing I'd buy from their site is a French Curve, along with some duck billed applique scissors to help with grading seams.

Happy vintage sewing
