The roundup for this Sunday featured a selection of patterns that aren’t new, you’re not likely to have missed their arrival but maybe they’ve fallen off your radar in the meantime? I often find myself purchasing (and sometimes even immediately printing) patterns which take my fancy, and then they sit, waiting for inspiration to strike. Often, all it takes is a little nudge, or the perfect fabric to cross my path and we’re off again. Hopefully, something here will give you the nudge you need!
Number 1, The Miller Trousers
Miller Trousers from Paper Theory
Number 2, The Blackwood Cardigan
Blackwood Cardigan from Helen’s Closet
This classic keeps on giving! Every time I see it I think ‘I really need to make some of these’, not just for winter but also because summer can be cold here!
Number 3, The Sienna Maker Jacket
Sienna Maker Jacket from Closet Case Patterns
Who printed this off as soon as it arrived in her inbox and then has swiftly procrastinated for months and months? It’s me! I love this sample picture and feel like I’d use this pattern a lot if I bothered to sew it up for myself!
Number 4, The Reed Skirt
Reed Skirt from Grainline Studios
Like the Sienna jacket above, this Reed skirt was part of the first patterns released by big indie sewing businesses Grainline & Closet Case. Almost a year on from the online-plus-size-sewing drama, it’s great to see that we’ve got some movement towards size inclusion in indie-sewing!
I made the Sienna Maker Jacket as a vest and I really like my version. I hope you get to make it because it’s a great pattern. I’m actually thinking of making the vest again!
I just searched out your version Carolyn- it looks great and has certainly got me thinking! I love the ‘utilitarian’ look but wonder if I first need to make some jeans to wear with it!
