Not just one new pattern but four new patterns from Sew Liberated

What a treat: Four new patterns from Sew Liberated!  Meg has done herself proud with this round of patterns, with each one set to become a bestseller.  Not only do they have great written instructions, but each pattern comes with a download code to access a full video tutorial online.  What a great idea!  Let me introduce you...

The Clara Dress is a strong contender for the title of ‘Perfect Summer Dress’.  It has keyhole sleeve details, in-seam pockets (you’ve got to have pockets), and a fabulously twirly skirt. And it features an elastic waist that makes it both comfortable and forgiving in fit. 

The Esme Top is going to rival the Schoolhouse Tunic for the top selling Sew Liberated pattern.  A really cute wardrobe staple which will work in a million different fabric choices.  This is a comfortable and casual top that will be smarted up with ease.  Use a cotton lawn for a summer version and a cozy cotton flannel for a winter shirt.

Next we have the Simple Skinny Jeans.  Easy peasy to sew and even easier to wear these jeans are a great place to start with sewing trousers.  With a knit elastic waistband (we love elasticated waistbands!), functioning back pockets, and faux front pockets and fly, these beauties can be whipped up quickly as either jeans, jeggings or leggings.

And lastly we have the Gathering Apron.  This is an apron for the forager... designed with collecting produce in mind this apron has a massive front pocket.  Perfect for heading out to the veggie patch and the hen coop... or if you're anything like me you can just fill it with small plastic toys and half eaten rice cakes.

Are you going to try one?  Which will you choose first?!

  4. Oooh they all look great! I like the idea of a gathering apron for the allotment. And the thought of gathering veggies in the sunshine is cheering me up on this very cold day!
