A few months ago, the lovely and talented Emily from In The Folds sent me a printed copy of her Collins Top pattern. Emily and I have exchanged patterns in the past and I’ve always loved sewing (and wearing) her designs. Emily ran a very successful Kickstarter campaign last year to jumpstart the printed pattern side of her business and it’s been exciting to see her journey. The Collins Top is part of my Make Nine list for the year so it was a bit of serendipity that Emily offered to send me the pattern.
The printed pattern is really beautiful and very well designed. It comes in a large color printed envelope with an instruction booklet and a folded printed pattern. The paper for the printed paper is a nice light weight, much sturdier than tissue paper but not too thick. As always, the instructions are very clear with excellent illustrations. There is also a sewalong on the In The Folds blog with more tips and photos. Make sure to check it out too.
