Sewing Goodness Extracts

September 6, 2016

I’m repeadtedly in awe at how great garments made of refashioned denim can be. Look at Carolyn, MessyEssyMakes, TheUpSew, Fadanista, VeraLuna or matkailijakirppu.

Named Patterns have released their latest Collection (Evolution Theory) and I love love love the Talvikki Sweater (I have a vision of it in scuba without the sleeves and with a higher armscye) and the Aava Tailored Blazer (which I see without the decorative pocket flaps). I also like the Pulmu High-waisted Pencil Skirt and the Tyyni Cigarette Trousers, which remind of the Vogue DKNY pattern (can you say “no side seams”?). And then I had a look at their back Collections and fell in love with the skirt of the Vanamo Two-Piece Cocktail Dress.

Colette Patterns is releasing Rue today, a pattern that is aimed to be a “back to the roots” of the brand release. I like the play of stripes on their sample but am not convinced by the fit of the bodice on the Pictures above the piping lines, so I held off. Will/would you grab it?
