Pattern Pre-Order!

My long awaited sewing patterns are NOW AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER!!! They are off to print and all the elements will arrive back at my HQ at the end of the month! All preorders will ship the first week of June, and all domestic preorders will receive FREE SHIPPING! So pop on over to the web shop and order your patterns today and score some savings at the same time! 

I can't wait for all of you to see the finished patterns. They look so great and I know you all will love them! Now available is the Chelsea Dress and the Derby Dress patterns. Both are printed with high quality paper envelopes, clear illustrated instructions, and tissue paper patterns. Both patterns are sized from 0-18 and they retail for $18 each.

Both are rated as a "2 spool" difficulty, on a 5 spool rating. After much debate on this, I decided to just do my own thing and rate the difficulty on 1-5 scale, using the spool from my logo as my icons. This is a 2 spool, which to me means that it's not for an absolute beginner, but it's not too hard. 3 spools to me would mean zippers, set in sleeves, etc. 4 spools is all that plus more fitting and other elements of difficulty. And a 5 spooler, well, that would be very difficult. Not sure I'd ever go there, but it's nice that it's there just in case!

The Derby Dress is a fun swingy a-line sundress. Both versions pull on, feature princess seams in the front, and have four panels int he back. View A has a contrast Peter Pan collar, straps at the neck, and a gathered ruffle at the hem that hits above the knee. View B has a bias-cut gathered ruffle at the neck, a tie belt at the waist, and hits just above the knee.

The Chelesea Dress is a sweet and modern baby doll dress. Both versions pull on and feature raglan sleeves and dress that gathers into the upper yoke. View A has a contrast yoke, Peter Pan collar with a 3-button closure, short sleeves, and hits above the knee. View B has a V-neck collar with bias cut bow, 3/4 length sleeves, and band at the hem that hits at the knee.

Thanks to everyone for their insanely amazing support! This wouldn't have happened without everyone that contributed to my Kickstarter campaign and to the lovely photographer, models, hair & make up team, assistants, and on and on. Also worth mentioning is my amazing illustrator who did all the layouts and drawings for the envelopes and instructions, Hollye Chapman. I'm going to do a whole post on her drawings later, so look for more on that soon!
