Nougat Launched! – Pattern Sighting AND Sewing Goodness Extracts
I’ve mentioned AnaJan here a few times already and if you haven’t been following her yet, well, there will be no reason not to at the end of this post. Because she’s now released the first pattern to her sewing pattern line Stepalica, and it’s called the Nougat dress. This is the kind of garment that will make people jaw drop when you tell them it’s self-made. First, have a look at view C:
“Ah nothing too special here”, I hear you think. “Just a couple of rotated darts.” Then have a look at view B:
Still in doubt? Then here’s the tech drawing of view C and Ana’s rendition of it:
Now you see what I mean now, right? Now if you’re already squinting your eyes at the tech drawing and trying to figure out how to fit this dress and match those seams, fear not: Ana will be hosting a sew-along to walk everyone through the process of making this dress. So now there’s no reason to not dive and get the pattern from her Etsy shop (or if you feel lucky, hop over to Miss Dibs). It is a pdf but Ana conveniently explains which pages to print depending on which view you’re intending to make.
