New Sewing Pattern coming in February!


Well, I am going to give you a BIG sneak peak which I promised myself I would wait closer to the release date but I just cannot!! I printed off the fabric (Sandi Hendersen's MeadowSweet) that I will use for the cover and drew up these little designs for you. This gives you a pretty good idea of the look but it surely does not show the details as well as the real thing! This also gives you a look into some of the steps I take to get to an actual outfit! I am really seeing the knee socks and all with this pattern! What do you think?

This will be offered first as a downloadable BUT the good news for this year I will have BONUS patterns with the physical. I have been asked to only do certain patterns for physical and certain patterns for physical and I have considered this but I believe the bonus pattern idea may be more fun and beneficial for all! So starting in 2010 all new designs will be both downloadable and physical EXCEPT the physical patterns will have a couple bonus patterns! I believe everybody will be happy with this! The pattern above is a 1920's inspiration. I will say that the waist band and pleated skirt will be a little lower to create more of a drop waist. There will be a scalloped accent on the front with fabric covered buttons on each scallop. The buttons are for accent only. There are NO BUTTON HOLES! I will also make one with flower accents on each scallop to give it a different look. This pattern, as all my patterns, is designed with the beginner in mind. I was able to make the size 5,6 this morning and it fit Rose very well. So now I have pattern pieces for sizes 3,4,5,6 done and need to make sizes 6m, 9m, 1, 2. I have created this pattern with simple lines and simple directions. It comes together very well!

Fabric side note: Hip Fabric is having a 20% off entire order for New Year!
And please go welcome my friend, Hays from Haysie-Doodle, to the blogging world!!!!!

How cute is that!!!! Knee socks do make the dress. Seeing how you are making it with the beginner in mind does that mean the buttons on the front are dummy buttons?

Yes, dummy buttons for sure!!

Oh you're in my head! I was just drafting a dress like this last week to go with some awesome Burberry plaid fabric I have. Now I can just wait for you lol. I agree, knee socks and black patent leather Mary Janes will be perfect! And maybe a matching fabric headband????

Oh my goodness!!! I love this design!!! Can't wait to sew it up for my little girl (p.s. I would love to volunteer to be a pattern tester if you need one! My dd is 10months old wearing a 12/18 month size). GOOD WORK!!! Can't wait to see what else you are coming up with this year!!

I would love to be a test sewer if you need one for this! This looks like a precious design! :)

Are you kidding? I was just saying to myself the other I was looking at this cute little GAP dress that Claire has..."Someone needs to put out a drop waist pattern." I'm so excited! I'm sure you have test sewers all lined up, but if you'd like another I'd gladly pitch in!

Awesome Creations!!
