New Indie Patterns

We're adding to our stable of Independent pattern designers!
The new additions are Victory Patterns from Canada, with a sweater dress Lola & a full skirt, with optional braces, Madeleine. 
Secondly, we have Grainline Studio from USA, whose patterns I have bought as PDFs - Moss is a great fitting skirt! They have a slim fit t-shirt Lark, classic raglan sweatshirt Linden and the gorgeous Morris Blazer (my new autumn jacket!).

I always source these patterns after hours of reading sewing blogs & reviews and pouring over web images - so you don't have to ;)

Oh & we have new colours in our lace zips!

New Range of Fabrics!

An early start for a Sunday morning, but for a good cause. Fabric shopping is always worth getting up for!  Luckily most of the range was in stock, so the estate car came in handy, for the return journey.

This range has had a sewing pattern magazine produced, photographed using the fabrics. So you can see what they look like made up, before you make them yourself!

There's a magazine in the shop for you to browse for ideas & some for sale, if a pattern (or few!) take your fancy ;)

Having a relaxing browse in the afternoon sun, with a cold beer for company!  

But which pattern to make first & what fabric shall I use?!
