Best-selling Colette do three dress patterns, [Myrtle,Moneta, and Wren] and a skirt pattern [Mabel] that have been designed specifically for jersey and after trying them all we can say they are straightforward and great fun, with a size range that will accommodate everyone.
I’m not that sporty. Think of me as that old cat, dozing on the windowsill, but my eyes were opened by the new Vancouver collection of sewing patterns from Sewaholic. It’s not that I don’t like pictures with that much lycra, it’s just that I’ve hardly ever seen sewing patterns that are just made for it. It almost made me jump up out of my comfy armchair [well not quite].
Hang on, I’ve got a sporty daughter and several sporty nieces. I haven’t got any lycra or sports net, but I do have knit fabrics and I fancy the style of the Fraser Sweatshirt.
The loose fit of the Seymour Jacket caught my eye, that might just hide my six pack and I have some wild coloured outdoor fabrics that may very well suit the bill.
Ok I know I’m not exactly Jessica Ennis, but I might just give some of these a go.
Have you ever wanted a pattern by Tilly and the Buttons or Sew Over It, but thought that they were about 15% too expensive? Well, now is your chance to buy one. TrixieLixie need to move some stock and you need a discount. It’s a marriage made in heaven…..
Like quite a lot of others in the sewing world, we’d been awaiting the release of Grainline Studio’s Morris Blazer on printed paper for quite a while, so when we went looking again on Grainline’s website a few weeks ago it was all systems go!
Whilst we were there, another new paper pattern took our fancy, the Moss Skirt. We’ve only had a brief look, but we think that this could overtake the Amy Butler Barcelona Skirt as our favourite A-line[ish] skirt pattern.
Those rugged chaps at Thread Theory have finally brought out their three latest pdf patterns out on paper all at once.
The Jutland Pants are a classic, relaxed-fit, straight legged trousers designed to be ready for anything! These pants are roomy enough to allow for a full range of movement but still offer a flattering fit with back darts to shape the seat. This pattern is the perfect base to create everything from hard-wearing denim jeans to rugged water-resistant hiking pants.
The Finlayson Sweater is a grown up version of the classic hoodie. It will be a wardrobe staple due to its cozy boxy shape and hard wearing cuffed hems but there is no worry of looking like a slob while wearing it!
Finally, Matt is definitely showing his feminine side with the Camas Blouse. Enjoy the unrestricted comfort of a t-shirt and the put together elegance of a blouse. This blouse is designed to be COMFORTABLE and can be sewn in knits or stretch fabrics. It features shoulder and back yokes, elegant gathering, and a flattering curved v-shaped neckline placket.
