    “I’ve lost count of how many Sew Over It garments I’ve made over the years – there are 5 Penny’s in my wardrobe alone! Their patterns are so well drafted and the instructions always clear and concise. There’s an increasingly diverse group of models with each new pattern release, which I love!  The Stitch School courses, with their video content, are great, especially for sewing tricky elements of a more advanced project like the Francine jacket. If I ever have times when I’ve lost my sewjo I always seem to find my way back to a Sew Over It pattern to kick start my sewing again.”

    “I love Sew Over It’s modern take on classic styles.  As a relatively new sewist of about 3 years I have noticed how I have upped my sewing skills in the last year  and I am now able to make many of the patterns from new releases to the classics.”

  • Suzy Roberts, @sewing_in_spain

    “Sew Over It patterns are well drafted with excellent instructions. I find they need very little alteration to fit me and I am always picking up new skills when I use the patterns.”

    “I discovered Sew Over It just as I was beginning my dressmaking journey 4 years ago and instantly fell in love with the style of the patterns, clarity of instructions and the encouraging, you-can-do-it vibe of theteaching.  I’ve ended up making almost every one of their patterns since then and love the global community of SOI sewers that I now feel part of.”

    “Sew Over It sewing patterns are my go-to patterns! The fit is always spot on, the instructions are clear and insightful, and the style is classic, feminine and easily “hackable”. I enjoy making each design every time.”

  • Kellie Terry, @gigi_made_it

    “I’ve fallen head over heels for Sew Over It patterns. The range of patterns is superb. They’re stylish, well-drafted, and the pattern directions are easy to follow. Most importantly, they’re such fun to make and wear. That’s why I’ll never be over Sew Over It patterns!”

  • Camelia de Bruin, @calcedoniasewing

    “I love sewing with Sew Over It patterns! All the things I have made I wear everyday and that is so important. The instructions are always so well thought out. I love how consistent the drafting is, I know my size and my standard adjustments for the Sew Over It patterns which work every time so I get a great fit. In every pattern I find little details that I can add to my sewing repertoire and that is another reason why I love sewing with Sew Over It.”

  • Boon Kuan Lim, @limbksews

    “There is such a buzz in my local sewing community about Sew Over It. I love the vintage vibe of its style. I started following Sew Over It 2 years ago and my very first make was the Meredith dress. One pattern and I was hooked. Over the years, I’ve sewn up many more patterns from Sew Over It and learnt so so much more. There are new techniques in every pattern and the fit? Perfect always!”

  • Sangeeta Kaukinen Mehra, @thedressgarden

    “I fell in love with Sew Over It because of their vintage style patterns, especially the dress patterns, which is my favourite thing to sew. I love that all the patterns have thorough descriptions of every step of the sewing process together with pictures. Some even have sewalongs.  I also love that you feature a variety of different people on your social media and now also on your pattern covers.”

  • Joy Liao, @sew.with.joy

    “Sew Over It was one of the first companies I tried when sewing with patterns. I was initially drawn in by the stunning artwork used for the patterns, but I became a repeat customer because of their vast selection of dress patterns. If you love dresses, Sew Over It is bound to have a style that speaks to you. I appreciate how clear the pattern instructions always are and the illustrations help with figuring out the more tricky parts.”

  • Maria Bullingham, @maria_b_lovestostitch

    “I have been a long-time fan of Sew over it patterns. My love of them started with the iconic Betty Dress a long time ago!  I love the Maisie dress too.  I always feel so feminine and fabulous in it. Thank you Sew over for all the inspiration  over the years.”

    “I love Sew Over It because of the wide range of vintage inspired patterns and easy to follow instructions.”

  • Rosy, @rosysewsmodernvintage.

    “I love Sew Over It for many reasons! Lisa is so stylish and seems like a really lovely person. I enjoy seeing how she mixes vintage style with a modern aesthetic, which is just up my street! I’m always excited to see the monthly pattern releases and I enjoy making them because they have such easy to follow instructions. In short, I’m a huge fan!”

  • Pelumz Secretz, @pelumz.secretz

    “Sew over it has been part of my sewing journey right from the beginning. The YouTube channel was really helpful when I started learning how to sew in 2017. I followed the how to sew a zipper and sew an all-in-one facing tutorial. It was really detailed and easy to follow. Although I self-draft most of my makes, I get inspiration from the modern-vintage looks of Sew Over It Patterns.”

  • Reina Green, @green.reina

    “I love that Sew Over It offer an updated look with retro styling. Pair that with the super clear directions that have photographs and diagrams to help, and I’m sold! They also fit me really well with minimal adjustments right out of the package—which is a bonus!”

  • Claire Ingram, @makersgottomake

    ‘What brought me to Sew Over It were the online classes. I was teaching myself how to sew and I faced some physical health issues, so getting to a face-to-face class was a barrier for me. The online classes allowed me to sew at my own pace, take breaks, watch things back again, and again…! but I got the value of the great teaching from Sew Over It all from my home. I like sharing my makes online, getting inspiration and feeling like I am part of a community.”

    “Sew over it was the first sewing pattern company I came across 5 years ago and have I stuck with ever since. I love the atheistic, the patterns and the fabrics, not to mention Lisa’s easy to follow sewalongs and inspirations. The patterns are always easy to follow and always wearable and a bit different which is what I am always looking for. The team are just an email away and there is always lots of support and inspiration on the Sew Over It Facebook page.

    I can’t recommend it enough!”
