Figgy's: A new look and three new patterns

One of our most popular children’s sewing pattern brand ‘Patterns by Figgy’s’ has had a total refresh and has rebranded as ‘Figgy’s Patterns’. A subtle difference in name, but a grand difference in actuality. 
Designer Karen LePage is no longer working with the brand, leaving to pursue new projects and Shelly Figueroa has teamed up with a new partner, Daniela Caine to bring a new aesthetic to the label.  I spoke to Shelly about the change and she said “What's great about running your own business is you get to evolve naturally. Rebranding was like being given a second chance but with wisdom on your side. I feel the brand is authentic to my taste and style and I am lucky to share this with Daniela. Simple, modern and contemporary is exactly Figgy's and exactly us.”
Figgy’s will be releasing two collections a year, Spring and Fall, in the size range 18m to 8/9yrs. And, in Summer each year a baby line for ages Newborn – 12m will be released.

The new patterns that have been released are really refreshing. There are two outfit sets and a Jacket, and we're really excited to have them at exclusively available Backstitch. Within the UK you will always be able to get Figgy's Patterns here first.

Ayashe is a blouse and skirt set, there are two collar options to the blouse, two sleeve options and several hem options – you will definitely be making more than one of these blouses. The pleated skirt that completes the Ayashe set has deep pockets, and instructions for an ingenious way to insert elastic that can actually grow with your girl!

The Nituna jacket is a swing coat that will make your heart skip a beat. Easy to put together and less time consuming than you would expect. The jacket has options for a fully reversible version with bound edges or a lined version.

Sunki is a dress and leggings set. The pocket dress is brilliantly styled with great potential for contrast fabric highlights. The dress includes special pleated shoulders that give a lovely feminine touch. The leggings go together in a snap and before you know it you have an outfit.
Figgy’s Patterns will be reprinting just two of their most popular patterns from the original brand, with the remainder of the ‘Patterns by Figgy’s’ out of print and in limited stock.
