Last week we were lucky enough to get AMAZING weather, and not just for Seattle. As soon as the sun came out I started dreaming of flowy tanks that can be worn with shorts, skirts and cropped jeans. After a little bit of working and reworking I have arrived at a top that I am in love with and can’t wait to share with all of you. With that I am calling out to all of you to help me test the View Ridge top.
View Ridge is a woven top with a hi-lo ruffled hem. With the front yoke and gathering it is super flattering on all body types.
It doesn’t get much better than pleats and pockets in a skirt, and the Wedgwood skirt has that and so much more. Thanks to all the love and super helpful input on instagram from all you lovely ladies, the Wedgwood skirt is everything I thought it could be. So happy to have it working out and looking great so I can put out the official Wedgwood tester call!
Okay ladies I am going to stop taunting you with Instagram pictures and finally throw out some proper pictures of my newest pattern ready for testing. Montlake is a relaxed fit tee with a very low scoop neck. The pattern includes two neckband finishing options as well as 4 sleeve lengths. As with my other patterns, this pattern is available in sizes 0-24 which accomidates a bust size of 32″ – 50.5″. Montlake is sure to be the ultimate tee that’s a quick sew and very flattering for all body types with a slight swing to the bottom of the shirt.
I am a tank top kind of girl once the weather starts to warm up. As I begin to assemble my summer wardrobe I thought why not create a pattern that I would get so much use out of and I know others would as well. The Greenwood tank is the first in the Straight Stitch Designs Basic Collection. Greenwood has two finishing options either knit bias bound or knit strips. There are also two back options including a low back that mirrors the front neckline. This tank is made to be long and fitted.
It feels strange to be back here with a tester call. I worked so long and hard on my last pattern, Capitol Hill, back in October that I knew I needed a little break from patterns to enjoy the holiday season. We did just that and then managed to be sick for the next two months! We are finally all healthy in the house and I feel like myself again which means I could finally sit down and draft this pattern that has been on my mind for many months.
