For a while now, I have been dreaming of creating another sewing pattern for readers. Some of you might remember my first pdf pattern – the Ruby Slip from 2011. Nearly ten years on it is still a great bias slip pattern, and I still have one in my wardrobe!
But it is about time for a new pattern, don’t you think? This time I wanted to make something more wearable – something cool that a lot of people might like to wear, everyday and in lots of colours!
But which style? What sizes? How detailed should the instructions be? Should I charge? So many questions! And so many different answers to those questions! These are the things that took me forever. In my job I can make several patterns a day – but that’s how long it took me to decide on the line and notch styles for this one!
So, after going down a couple of rabbit holes, much procrastination and backtracking, I finally have a pattern ready for release. It is something I made in summer and wore it so much that I made a second one! I haven’t blogged about either of them yet so these shots are just a sneak peek. A couple more finishing touches to go and I can reveal all. I hope you’ll all love it!
If you are eager to be one of the first to sew my new pattern up, sign up here, pre-wash that cotton knit that has been in your stash for ever, and sharpen your scissors! [Edit: The pattern is now available – to access your copy click the Patterns page.]
PS: Did you ever make a Ruby Slip? Shall I update that next? I think we need a midi version! 💃
