Home - Victory Patterns MariaDenmark | shopONION.com Coletterie Truly Victorian Jennifer Lauren Vintage: The Enid Sweater - New Pattern Release! I've been working on this pattern for months and months and I'm so happy to be able to finally put it out into the world - I'd had the idea for a while now, ever since I took part in my first Me Made May in 2013 where I'd get lots of questions about where all of my cropped cardigans and sweaters came from. Since they're pretty much all vintage items, I'm afraid I was rather unhelpful. So, it occurred to me that there may be a few people out there, who are handy with a sewing machine and who might just appreciate a quick make, reminiscent of those cute vintage sweaters. Enid has been designed with those in mind who might want fitted vintage sweaters, but can't find them and have neither the time nor the inclination to knit one. Enid is practical and warm, designed to be made with soft, snuggly zero-stretch sweatshirt fabric. And in other news... Since Enid is a fitted sweater, if you prefer a looser fit, more appropriate for layering, I'd suggest going up a size. I hope you enjoy :) xx J

Independent Pattern Company Resources | Sewingplums Here’s a way to spend a rainy holiday weekend :D If the Butterick/ McCall’s/ Vogue or Simplicity/ New Look and Burda, Kwik Sew, or Neue Mode patterns don’t warm your heart, why not explore smaller pattern design companies. Most of them focus on a particular style. As a wild overgeneralisation, I look to USA-Canada companies for classic tailoring, comfortable casuals, historic/ vintage reproductions, or art-to-wear, and for specific sports. I’ve included : - some links to lists of USA-Canada independent pattern companies. Lists of links Many of the companies sell their own patterns on-line. Current styles Some of these pattern lines have discussion threads at Stitchers Guild, where you can get advice, news, and encouragement ! Historic reproductions (For 19c fashions see also Frances Grimble’s books.) USA on-line retailers of independent patterns Each retailer has their own selection of companies, and sometimes not the complete issues of a given pattern line. Craft Connection EZ Knit Also

Couture | Jolies bobines Ah Géraldine / République du chiffon, j’te kiffe ! Encore une pure merveille ! Son dernier patron, la robe Georgina, m’a encore une fois tapé dans l’œil avec son double décolleté dans le dos. Et puis, quand j’ai ouvert le fichier en avant-première (j’ai pris beaucoup de retard), une belle surprise, un patron impeccable avec des tracés de couleurs différentes pour chaque taille, des pièces séparées sur la planche, donc pas besoin retracer sur le calque, des schémas super clairs, et 9 pièces, que 9 ! Comme mon petit doigt m’a dit que la nouvelle collection Atelier Brunette allait sortir en avril, j’ai ressorti un coupon du Cosmic blue, mon chouchou de la collection actuelle, déjà utilisé ici pour moi et ici pour ma puce, sa robe préférée. Pour le dessous j’ai utilisé de la soie de chez Sacrés coupons. Ah Géraldine / République du chiffon you rocks ! Et avec Julia….

Professional lingerie patterns and sewing supplies — Make Bra Today I’m experimenting how a georgette fabric works as a bra and brief material. A primary reason why I picked up this particular fabric from the fabric store were these beautiful roses. A lot of them in different sizes and shapes, bringing a real challenge to the design. Freedom to choose the most beautiful ones. I love this part of the process. And, roses. The Georgette Fabric Let’s examine the fabric a little more detail. Preparing the Cup Cover Georgette fabric is easily fraying and therefore it is wise to minimize the amount/length of seams if possible. Decorating the Briefs It’s difficult to use a non stretch fabric as a brief material because garment must be so highly elastic. The Result The rose gardener’s bra and brief set looks rather pretty, feels great when wearing, but what happens when the set will be washed the first time?

Independent Pattern Designers | A Good Wardrobe I’m a huge fan of independent patterns and I’m always on the search for new ones. I thought that I’d include a working list of pattern designers that I’ve come across for your reference. I’ve tried to stick to designers whose focus is on adult apparel. Some of these brands have numerous patterns while others are smaller outfits with one or two items. I haven’t tried them all but each listing has a pattern that I would like to try. Colette – There’s little that I could say about Colette that hasn’t already been said – vintage inspired designs with excellent community support.Sewaholic – From Vancouver, Tasia designs for pear shaped women but these classic patterns would look good on many shapes and sizes.Pattern Runway – There’s no hiding how much I love Sarah Olding’s designs – these downloadable patterns are a treat.

Independent Sewing Patterns for the Plus-Sized Sewist - The Finished Garment The Big List of Plus Size Independent Pattern Designers Am I plus-sized? I don’t know. It all depends on what plus-size means. So I’ve put together a list of sewing patterns companies that make things a bit bigger (plus-size, curvy, full-figured?) This list was last updated on August 3, 2014. Women Men For each company, I’ve listed the largest size they carry (in their own sizing terms, which vary quite a bit) and the largest bust/chest size in inches, since it is a measurement that is universally listed. Since the average bust measurement is 40″, according to Size USA, I’m listing everything above.
