Alma Blouse and Kelly Skirt

We've had a couple of hot new patterns come in recently and both are flying out. 

First off is the oh-so-clever Megan Nielsen's new release: The Kelly Skirt.  Isn't this just the perfect skirt?  I just have to make myself one of these.  The Kelly is an (incredibly flattering) high waisted A-line. It features a button fronted placket, wide fitted waistband, large scoop pockets and pleating in the front and back.  And, it is designed for beginners in mind, so everyone can give it a go!

Then we have the Alma Blouse which is the latest from Tasia of Sewaholic Patterns.  This is a great 'no button' blouse and as usual Tasia has given different neckline and sleeve options that mean there are almost a gazillion different versions of this blouse for you to try.  Thanks Tasia!

And, whilst I'm on patterns, Megan is hosting a Banksia sewalong starting in September, so if you have been thinking about making the Banksia blouse, then this is a great opportunity to get expert guidance through the whole process.  Details are on Megan's blog here.
