First up is an absolute must-have of a pattern! Friday Pattern Company have delivered another top pattern we will all want to sew and wear – the Donny Shirt. This boxy pull-on top is designed to be a workhorse in your wardrobe. Pair it with jeans or a skirt, and layer it over or under a dress – the sky’s the limit! I can also see this having plenty of hack potential to turn it into a dress.
We are predicting shirt and short combos will be a go-to outfit this summer, so we’re very happy to spot this new arrival! The Wardrobe by Me Camp Shirt and Shorts pattern is made up of a casual, button-up shirt with a convertible collar and elasticated waist shorts. This set is equally perfect for lounging on the sofa, wearing around town, or heading to the beach! It’s also perfect for mixing + matching with other things in your wardrobe.
Create stylish, modern kick flare jeans where every aspect has been carefully considered to ensure a flawless result. The Juliana Martejevs Dina Jeans pattern comes with a step-by-step video tutorial (in German with English subtitles) which is handy for a project like this where you might want to watch the process to make sure you’re on the right track.
Fancy making an accessory for a change? The Juliana Martejevs Frances Headband sewing pattern will be great for using up your scraps – and could even be made to match your makes! This hair accessory is the perfect complement to any outfit, whether elegant or casual. The Frances Headband also makes a great gift!
The next pattern is a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. The Waves & Wild Genoveva Top has a beautiful shape and statement flutter sleeves, with a relaxed fit so you can wear it all day in complete comfort. The pleats at the shoulders and dramatic, butterfly-inspired sleeves are irresistible. There is also a separate pattern piece for those who require a full bust adjustment.
There’s been a lot of love for the Maker’s Atelier patterns since we added them to the site and we think this is another excellent addition to the range. The Pleat Detail Dress/Top is a beautifully understated design, where the sleeves and body are cut as one and feature an inverted pleat.
