Ooh, I am really excited to share my final pattern of the three with you today! This is by far my favourite of the three new pattern releases...because it involves sewing something that I can wear myself!
Introducing, COASTAL BREEZE...
Meet the dress that feels like a t-shirt...Coastal Breeze is the ultimate holiday frock. Made from super comfy stretch fabric, and with a classic scoop-necked shape, you just need to pull it on and go! A lifesaver for those mornings when you are racing the clock to get our the door.
Featuring a flattering empire-line, tummy-friendly pleats and with no zippers, darts, buttons or other fiddly bits, you will have so much fun sewing Coastal Breeze that it will feel like you are taking a holiday!
Sized to fit "tween" girls to the larger woman, Coastal Breeze is casual enough to wear when you are kicking back at home, or you can slip on a pair of fancy heels and feel a little more special.
I am finding it more and more enjoyable to come up with designs for women's clothing. Partly because I love a bit of selfish sewing and making clothes for myself (that I would actually wear!) and partly because I know that so many people are crying out for easy, yet stylish, women's clothing patterns and I like to know that I've made it easier for someone to sew for themselves :)When Emma from Ballarat Patchwork offered to supply me with some stretch (knit) fabric for my next pattern I knew that I needed to come up with a summer dress for the ladies. Stretch fabric is SO easy to wear and this dress is perfect for those hot, summer days when you want to be as cool and comfortable as possible. Ballarat Patchwork have a large selection of stretch fabric in store now!
I'm just LOVING these photos...my sister-in-law, Whitney is the stunning model (don't you just want her hair!!) and the photos were taken by Kelsie Moore Photography in Melbourne. I sent the dress up to Whitney and Kelsie and gave them a brief outline of what I wanted and they did a fantastic job!! Thanks so much guys :)
