We never get tired of our favourites. This wide blouse with smocking embroidery first appeared in issue 54 and we‘ve revived it again for our collection 59.

If you are interested in the pattern but are afraid of the difficulty level, do not hesitate. We‘ve created a full video tutorial with all the steps to go through. A timeless classic which is worth putting the time and effort in. Psst: these pants are part of our next collection for sisterMAG68, but we couldn‘t keep it secret ;)

67-1 Slim dress with wide sleeves and patch pocket

Sometimes a special silhouette really catches our eye and this dress is no difference. With its straight neckline in the front and the V-shaped back, a slim silhouette but super wide sleeves, it is just a total statement piece in itself. The sleeves are made with a gusset in order to guarantee comfort while moving.

41-6 The wide beach shirt

When coming home from a hot day in the office, all we want to do is throw on an easy, lightweight garment that still feels chic. We called this shirt the wide beach shirt, but let us tell you, we‘ve worn it at home non-stop! It is so cute with its round neckline, worked with a trim and super wide body piece.In our case we‘ve embellished the top with a fabric rose, making it even suitable for evening wear

67-9 Longuette skirt

Have you often wondered why the slim skirts you buy or sew yourself never look like those of the protagonists in the various American series set in law firms or advertising agencies? The cut is ok, the measurements are right, the sewing has been done properly, but the skirt still looks kind of mutty and not at all slimming. The simple truth is the cut of the sewing pattern. The center back seam is the crucial point. You‘ll notice in our sewing pattern that it is curved – and you‘ll see the difference! In any case, we were fascinated by this skirt and don‘t want to miss it any more.

41-6 Oversized Blazer without lining


Especially in summer we love a blazer that‘s easy, lightweight and that we can WASH! This oversized blazer comes without lining and is therefore a perfect project for any blazer-novice! The classic cut is an absolute dream to wear with any outfit this summer!

08-6 Buttoned-up bustier


A Must-Have item for summer 2023. Whether it is Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, Giambattista Valli or Alberta Ferretti, the bustier has its comeback in outerwear and we love this more elegant version of the trend. To make this more comfortable, the back is made with elastic bands to create a back piece that will adapt to your body.

54-2 Trousers with high waistband, side zipper and 3 welted pockets


This trouser pattern has become a favorite among all who have tried them. It combines some details that make you feel comfortable and look great at the same time. The crease makes the trousers fine, piped pockets make the trousers high quality, pleats make the trousers comfortable, the waistband makes the trousers feminine and the side seam zipper makes the trousers special. A long time ago, women‘s trousers were closed almost exclusively on the side. The advantage of not having another three layers on the belly has been forgotten. Especially with thicker fabrics, it just looks better. Sometimes going back to old experiences brings a lot of added value.

49-1 Polo shirt with bow


A polo shirt with a special twist. A small loop is sewn into the closure, and the collar is pulled through it when worn. This creates a bow, which doesn‘t need to be tied every time. Whether made of silk or, as shown here, comfortable jersey, it‘s a super beautiful piece in your wardrobe. By the way, there‘s a How-to video for it on YouTube, fortunately! Just visit sisterMAG Patterns on YouTube!

50-1 Easy Jersey Skirt


The Go-To skirt for a comfortable wear. The jersey skirt is super easy to sew and even if you end up crawling on the floor with your 2-year-old, it will let you do that! The skirt pattern consists of one super easy piece as there is no waistband but the jersey is being folded in to create the facing inside. Perfect for beginners.
