Liberty Jersey Fabric

With all these wild, new Liberty Jersey Fabrics we’ve got in stock at TrixieLixie, it’s sometimes difficult to know what to make with them all.

liberty-jersey2We have made the Sewaholic Davie Dress ourselves and we know others who are ardent fans of Cake Patterns knit dress range.

knits-1Best-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.

Wren!

The new Colette sewing pattern is here! Wren is gorgeous! Its easy to make and extremely flattering.

I made myself version two from some of our lovely striped jersey that has a lovely silky feel to it and hangs beautifully.

I think the Wren pattern is fun to wear and also quick and easy to make, I can see myself making more of these, particularly as we have just bought in a few Liberty Jersey fabrics!

Sewaholic gets all sporty

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].

vancouverHang 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.

New Morris Blazer and Moss Skirt from Grainline Patterns are here!

new-grainline

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.

MossSlideshow3

So this morning, our lovely postman turned up with a huge box of patterns, which refilled our sadly depleted selection from Grainline. We are now fully stocked up with Morris Jackets, Moss Skirts, Linden Sweatshirts and Alder Shirtdresses.

Let’s go!

Thread Theory have three new patterns. including one for the girls!

Jutland-Pants-9sml-logo

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.
