Hi everyone, I hope you are all really well. I have been all consumed with a very exciting project just recently which is why I haven’t blogged anything for a little while. Thankfully it is finally ready to share with you guys- hooray!
As those of you who have been following this blog for a while will know I studied pattern cutting a number of years ago and being able to draft patterns has been an integral part of my love for garment design and sewing.
Since learning how to do so I have been drafting patterns for myself and other people and recently decided that I would really like to produce some of my designs as sewing patterns for others to make and wear. The first of these is Emmeline, a simple tee with three different versions all of which can be made in either knit fabrics or woven fabrics. I wanted to launch my little pattern label with a staple wardrobe builder that was suitable for all levels of sewists and adaptable to different tastes and personal styles.
For me the Emmeline Tee is the answer to a number of different situations, make her in a basic jersey to wear with joggers to the gym (or bed!) or in pretty lace to pop on with heels for a Christmas party. Either one can be whipped-up in an afternoon. I wanted to make the instructions as fully comprehensive as possible and so each version has a full set of illustrated instructions for knit fabrics and for woven fabrics. Also included is an guide for those who are new to working with jersey fabric.
At the moment the pattern is available as a PDF download and is currently winging its merry way to the printers so expect to be able to buy the print version in the New Year.
I would love to hear what you think about Emmeline and for any of you who decide to make it I would love to see your photos on facebook Instagram or twitter #littletailoress. If you have any questions just leave a comment below or drop me an email. I will be doing various sew-alongs on youtube and here on the blog so keep an eye out for those too.
You can buy Emmeline here.
Thanks for reading!
