Today’s the day, I am thrilled to announce the arrival of the first part of the 2015 Summer collection! Four new patterns that are wonderful additions to your summer handmade wardrobe have landed in the shop, let me introduce you to the newest “ladies”!
First up, is “Charlotte”, a wonderful tunic with a unique rectangle back yoke. It will take you from summer right into autumn with the addition of a warm and cozy cardigan. “Charlotte” is great for showcasing your favorite wovens. As for styling, I like tucking the front in slightly to give the look a little more shape.
Not to be outshined, the next pattern “Grace” can be made to accommodate many different areas within your handmade wardrobe. “Grace” is an easy to wear summer cardigan that features a curved hem and optional trim detailing. The included instructions are for both knit and wovens (including sheer substrates such as chiffon) allowing you to create a variety of looks from casual daytime to elegant evening.
Our next “lady” is a little more fashion forward, “Ashlin” is a knit dress featuring a racer back and deep armscyes. This is a great way to show off your bandeau bras for an added pop of color when styling. “Ashlin” can be made either knee-length or maxi length with optional side slits. It’s perfect for hot summer days, as a swim cover up, or even a nightgown!
Last but not least, the final “lady” happens to be my first handbag pattern! “Evelyn” is a stylish zippered fold over clutch. Mix’n’match a variety of fabrics (Hello, leather!) along with an exposed zipper to create your one of a kind clutch. Add tassels or other zipper pulls to top off your “Evelyn”. Fold it toward the front for one look and flip it around for an additional look.
