The past couple of weeks have been busy working on my new pattern, doing my regular job, sewing bunch (lots of new stuff coming later this month!) and for the past few days battling a flu-ish cold. I've been going to bed early and dreaming about the Almada Kimono. Of course, it must be in double gauze, because it's just the most luxurious yet casual fabric. The Almada is from Seamwork magazine and last week, I had the honor of being featured on the Colette blog sharing some thoughts about my handmade wardrobe. It's part of a new series called Seamworker's Closet and I'm sure there are going to be lots of great things to come.
Megan Nielsen released the Rie dress pattern. It's a dress/top and suitable for maternity.
Marilla Walker released the Rose Jacket pattern and it’s free!
Paprika Patterns released the Opal Cardigan.
Maven Patterns released the French Dart Shift pattern.
Wear My Lemonade has a new pattern, the Wanda trench coat. So gorgeous. I wish it was in English too.
Grainline Studio released an add-on to the Archer shirt pattern for a Popover style. I bought the Archer pattern at the end of last year and now I want to make it even more.
And last but not least, By Hand London released the Sarah Shirt pattern just last night.
