New York, New Yo...
The beauty of making clothes is that a pattern is a block of myriad possibilities. There is so much potential locked in these patterns, we are excited to show you a new way to look at them. Interspersed with our new patterns, we will be showing you RESTYLED patterns from the past. Today we kick it off with the restyled Shakira dress.
Shakira was our first ever plus-size pattern. We’ve gone back into the vaults to give this old pattern a bold new look with contemporary revisions. Available in sizes 46-60, the simple tunic-like shape makes this a versatile pattern for alterations- envision it shortened to the length of a shirt, or make an apron with the pattern pieces like one of our users has done. We removed the sleeves all together, shortened the length and cinched the waist for a fresh look.
