Take a look at this new pattern collection. These casual designs are softly tailored and sure to meet your needs both on a comfort and style level. Make yourself a top with matching shorts or a great dress!

This indigo collection will leave you feeling anything but blue, these patterns have relaxed elegant cuts and are featured here in deep blue denims and raw silks. With this pattern collection you can make co-ordinated outfits by cutting tops and bottoms in matching fabrics! Check out all the patterns below….


This Bow Front Top is cute and casual and finished off with a front bow. We love how this top has cap sleeves and a raw edge hem finish that we think gives this top a neat detail. Pair with your favorite jeans for a daytime look, or tuck into a skirt for an office appropriate style.


These are a great pair of Summer Pants that are cut loosely for comfort. We love the waist detail with keyhole and drawstring that make these pants great for the beach or lounging around.


This Gathered Blouse is both cool and comfortable. It has cute cap sleeves and a pretty gathered neckline. And check out the great back detail with a key hole that is bound and ties into a perfect little bow!


The Shirt Jacket is the perfect cross between a shirt and a jacket. We love the long sleeves and slightly cropped hemline and think this shirt can be worn solo or look great paired over a cute blouse. Here it is worn with the Pleated Shorts.


The Puff Sleeve Dress has a unique design with puffed sleeves and a relaxed fit. This dress, depending on the fabric, can be made to be elegant or casual.


This Unisex Shirt works for both him and her. This is a classic Men’s style shirt, which is reinvented this season with a high neck and concealed buttons. For women, this top looks great paired over a bathing suit or leggings and for Men this shirt looks great tucked into trousers or worn unbuttoned at the beach.


Here we have a lovely outfit made up of the Drawstring Blouse and Skinny Pants . The blouse is loose-fitting and has short kimono sleeves with drawstring shoulders that gather beautifully. These Skinny Pants are youthful and super comfortable when made in a fabric with stretch. They are cropped and cuffed at the ankle and also feature a fitted back yoke seam. Pair these pants with a loose fitting top and flip-flops for a cool summer style like above, or dress up with heels and a metallic top for an outfit fit for a night on the town!


This is the Wide Sleeve Top which is a loose fitting top with wide sleeves and a peter pan collar.There is closer detail on the left shoulder complete with snaps. This cropped style top looks great paired above with the Pencil Skirt which feature details like curved front darts and a back vent. This outfit defiantly transitions from the office to after work cocktails.

This collection is rich in texture and style. These styles will work well in your existing wardrobe with their mix-and-match potential. Try sewing up one or all of these softly tailored patterns, like the Summer Pants which include extra detailed sewing instructions, or the Puff Sleeve Dress for a more challenging project. Wear these styles sea-side at the cottage, or dress up for work in them, either way these styles are casually elegant and appropriate for various ages.

Happy Sewing!

    Lovely! I’ll probably be looking to make some of these in a lighter cotton/jersey but the patterns seem perfect to beat the Summer heat! :^D
