I am so excited to release this pattern that has been on my mind FOREVER! I was in a bit of a pattern design/sewing funk through most of December and January but this pattern finally brought me out of it. It turned out exactly how I wanted and ended up being even more comfortable than I imagined.
Bellevue has a wide open neckline with two finishing options, either banded or faced, and four sleeve lengths. I am a sucker for elbow length but the short sleeve is perfect as the weather is warming up. The pattern is a mix of knit and woven with endless possibilities.
A friend recently said it perfectly when she described my style as simplicity with unique designs. I couldn’t have described the look and feel I am going for with my patterns better than that. I strive for comfort and style while still being able to live our lives and wear our handmade clothes. No one wants a closet full of clothes they can only wear on date night or for that special occasion. We want to proudly wear our me made clothes no matter what exciting or day to day things we are doing, and if those clothes are interesting thats even better.
It’s here it’s here the day is finally here! You can now purchase your own copy of Ravenna!
When I decided on a whim last May to sign up for Lauren Dahl’s Pattern Workshop (affiliate link) course I never could have imagined I would actually get to this point. I had absolutely no knowledge about pattern drafting at all. If you could see the first email I sent Lauren with a bunch of ridiculous questions you would laugh, I had no idea what I was doing.
