A Closer Look At The Latest Fibre Mood Magazine | Edition 27

Special Number 3! It’s here: Fibre Mood 27 is another special edition, and it's truly exceptional! This XL release offers you a fantastic selection of 15 essential sewing patterns with numerous variations. We have paired some of our own fabrics with some of the Fibre Mood collection fabrics to give you a range of different pattern possibilities. 

1. Viscose Wool Jersey & Hylda Pattern

An extra layer of warmth: the figure-hugging Hylda roll-neck sweater provides comfort during the cooler months and is the ultimate styling piece. Stylish under a blazer, warm and beautiful under a jumper or cardigan. 

Viscose Wool Elastane Jersey Coral & Orange Hylda Pattern

These viscose, wool and elastane blend knit jersey fabrics from the latest Fibre Mood collection offer the perfect blend of warmth and stretch for a comfortable and relaxed fit. They are super stylish and are sure to add a pop of colour to your wardrobe.

2. Rib Knit & French Terry Fabric For Cheryl & Elza Pattern

Cheryl: A classy essential: Cheryl is a simple, fitted bodysuit with long sleeves. A must in your wardrobe, because it feels wonderfully comfortable and moulds perfectly to your body.

Elza: The tank top remains a hardworking basic. Since last summer, the scooped shoulder top has resurfaced everywhere, from the Prada and Bottega Veneta catwalks to Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber's wardrobe.

Cotton Elastane Rib Knit - Deep Green Elza Pattern Green French Terry Fabrics Cheryl Pattern

Pair these patterns with our versatile plain French Terry fabrics, available in over 40 unique shades, for a comfortable and breathable casual garment. We have a wide range of jersey fabrics that will make the perfect partner for the Elza & Cheryl top. 

Yuka Pattern

Rib Knit & Yuka Pattern

The tank dress is a real summer must-have. Just as fresh and sporty as model Elza, yet this dress has a deep, round neckline which makes for a more classic look. Yuka also pairs easily with other garments, but she especially loves extra sunny days! Shorten Yuka to make a tank top.

As with Elza, only knitted fabrics qualify for Yuka, with rib knit and (rib) trim fabric being favourites.

3. Cotton Trousering & Waterproof Fabric For Delma Pattern

What a fun addition to your coat collection! Delma is playful and agile, looks feminine and is very practical at the same time. This loose, short cape has an elegant pleat at the back, side seam closures and a hidden button fastening.

Extra special: the front storm flap is a nod to the classic trench coat. Practical with a hood or prefer a collar? Up to you!

Waterproof Group Delma Pattern

Almost any fabric for a rain mac or trench coat is suitable for this pattern, why not try a nice wool blend or cotton fabric such as our Luigi range for a smart and sophisticated look. 

4. Heavy Cotton Knit Fabric For Donna Pattern

A lovely cardigan to wear all year round: Donna looks casual with its round neck band, raglan sleeves with cuffs and button fastening. Thanks to the hem band, this cardigan also sits extra nicely at the waist.

A handy hack-tip: you can also turn Donna into a jumper very easily!

Donna Pattern Cream Heavy Knit 100% Cotton Fabric

We have a versatile range of knitted fabrics that could be used for this pattern, why not try a fun print or bold hue to create an eye-catching look that is sure to keep you warm and comfy. 

5. Jersey Fabric Fabric For Erica & Gina Pattern

Erica: Indispensable in every wardrobe: the humble T-shirt. The round neckline and short sleeves make Erica an easy fit. Do you like an oversized fit? Then opt for a few sizes larger.

Gina: A variation on the classic T-shirt, Gina is a loose shirt with elegantly cut sleeves. Gina was given turn-back cuffs and a chest pocket as stand-out details (but you can also leave them out if you don’t want them!) We highly recommend making Gina – it is a quick make, and you’ll have a new, fun T-shirt in no time.

When it comes T-shirt fabrics, we have an endless selection of compositions, colours and prints that could be used to create a basic tee. Our plain interlock cotton jersey fabric for example has over 20 shades, one for every day of the week! This material is easy to care for and knitted in the UK. 

6. Emmet Twill Tan For Joni Pattern

Fancy a challenge? This project requires some patience, but the result is a gorgeous wear-anywhere blazer that you will take out of your closet for years to come. Joni is a loose model with a pronounced shoulder line and soft waistline.

Joni Pattern

Emmet Twill Tan

The Joni blazer has a wide range of style possibilities; you can use cotton twill, polycotton, denim, linen, wool tweed, flannel and fine virgin wool for whatever your preference. 

7. Scrubs Poly/Cotton Twill Fabric For Kenza Pattern

Kenza looks wonderfully casual thanks to its wide legs with double pleats. These trousers have a facing instead of a waistband for a different effect. Furthermore, Kenza has a zipped fly fastening, a darted back, and faux welt pockets. The cuffed hems is a design detail we love, but these are obviously not a must.

Styling tip: combine with the Erica T-shirt and the Joni blazer (you could have the blazer in the same fabric as the trousers!)

Scrubs Group Kenza Pattern

Look for a woven fabric with substantial weight, from poplin, cotton twill, crepe, wool blend and polycotton to corduroy, denim or even leather the design variations for this pattern are second to none. You could make breathable summer pants by using linen or why not try an elegant print that complements your style. 

We think our 'Scrubs' range would be ideal for the Kenza trousers; soft, malleable, polycotton twill fabric available in over 10 shades. 

8. Sweatshirt Fabric For Lara Pattern

Weekend vibes! Lara is a lovely, oversized jumper with plenty of style lines, and .... a (hidden) kangaroo pocket in the front! Plenty of possibilities with Lara. For a plainer jumper you can tape together the front pattern pieces and the back ones to leave out the vertical seams. And a colour blocked version can also be an idea!

Lara Pattern

We have every fabric you need to make the most comfortable, all-season garment. Whether you're looking for leisurewear or something to keep you warm during those cold winter months, our sweatshirt fabrics will do the trick. For those who want something a bit more stylish than just plain old sweatshirts, marl sweat shirting and fleece backed sweat shirting are both excellent choices.

9. Cotton Poplin Fabric For Odyna Pattern

A versatile piece, Odyna likes different options. This short, loose button-down blouse gets extra boost with an A-line pleated sleeve. Prefer something more classic? Then go for a regular long, straight pleated sleeve with a slit and large cuffs.

Yellow Abstract Print Cotton Poplin Odyna Pattern Green Abstract Print Cotton Poplin

Odyna's stylish sleeves come into their own using a woven fabric such as poplin or textured cotton. Should you prefer a blouse with a subtler appearance, opt for materials offering greater drape, like double gauze, chambray, lyocell, or crepe.

10. Luxury Stone Washed Cotton Fabric For Phyllis Pattern

A favourite with a special extra: Phyllis is at first glance a minimalist shirt dress, but thanks to the pleats you get a sophisticated and distinct silhouette. The dress is gently fitted and features ¾ sleeves with an elegant slit. And of course, no shirt dress is finished without a collar, although you can of course just use the collar band for a different effect.

Fibre Mood Luxury Stone Washed Cotton Phyllis Pattern Luxury Stone Washed Cotton

We recommend our Luxury Stone Washed Cotton for the Phyllis shirt dress. We have 5 exclusive Fibre Mood shades and some of our own more neutral tones that are perfect for creating versatile garments that can be worn for almost any occassion. 

11. Lightweight Denim Fabric For Perla Pattern

For fans of the classic blazer: this sleeveless dress looks stylish and formal, but the length and oversized fit add extra playfulness. Perla is double breasted, with welt pockets and a lining. Furthermore, the dress is made up of a front piece, a side piece and a back piece with a centre back seam.

Very pretty in combination with the Hylda roll neck! And of course, the length is also flexible and you can very easily make a longer version of this.

Tip: if you’d like to add sleeves, check out the Joni blazer’s instructions for our idea on how we would make it.

Denim Group Perla Pattern

If you prefer not to use denim, alternative fabrics can be used such as cotton twill, polycotton, linen, wool tweed, flannel and fine virgin wool

12. Boiled Wool Fabric For Mona Pattern

The Mona's success can be explained by its multifunctional abilities. This top can be worn both classic, cool and ultra-feminine, wear it with a roll-neck sweater like Hylda and corduroy trousers, or with a summer skirt.

Mona Pattern Boiled Wool Group

Our boiled wool fabric is of the highest quality and is loved by customers for its easy sewability and fabulous range of colours. Our boiled wool comes in a range of beautiful colours, from muted earth tones to vibrant jewel tones. Whatever your project, we are sure to have the perfect colour for you!
