Leschi Fabric Choices

If you missed the big announcement yesterday, my newest pattern Leschi is now available for purchase.  The pattern is marked down 20% through Friday so don’t wait to buy the pattern.

When I started dreaming about this pattern a few years ago I knew I wanted a blouse that could be sewn in a variety of fabrics to either elevate my everyday momiform or rock on a date night.  Leschi is everything I had hoped it would be and today I want to share the different fabrics I chose to use for my blouses.

Bryant Pattern Release

My new pattern has me dreaming of spring.

Bryant is a knit dolman top with a boatneck and two sleeve options.  Whether you decide to make the short sleeve cuffed version or long sleeve, you have the perfect pattern to transition you through the seasons.

This pattern is a little different from your average dolman top, it’s cut on the bias!  By cutting your top on the bias you are not only getting the chance to play with fun prints but you get a level of added drape you wouldn’t normally have.

Phinney Ridge Release

A classic cardigan is a staple in my wardrobe and to finally have a pattern that allows me to customize it is wonderful.  Phinney Ridge really is classic meets comfort and is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe as well.

When designing this pattern I wanted to add a couple more modern details to the pattern while still keeping the classic lines you expect from a cardigan pattern.  Phinney Ridge has a wider cuff and bottom band and thanks to a wonderful suggestion by some testers, it also has 3/4 sleeves and elbow patches.  Great details that set it apart from other cardigan patterns available.

30 Days of Sundresses – Carkeek Dress

I am so excited to be joining Melissa of Melly Sews for her 5th Annual 30 Days of Sundresses.  This series is always so much fun to follow along with because you never know what everyone is going to share.

With the temperatures rising here in Seattle I knew this was the perfect opportunity to draft a relaxed fit dress that could be worn dressed up or casual.  I am all about relaxed and flowy so a dolman style shift dress seemed right up my alley.  It was from these ideas that I came up with my newest pattern, Carkeek, which is also a free pattern for all of you!

View Ridge Pattern

Introducing the newest pattern to my collection, View Ridge!

View Ridge Sewing Pattern by Straight Stitch Designs

This top is the perfect example of when you take your inspiration and make it your own.  As a pattern designer it is easy to get lost in all the possibilities but I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted out of this top and the final pattern is that plus more.

The pattern features 3 views for a variety of lengths and finishes.  You can sew it with or without ruffles and long or cropped length.  All versions have the hi-lo hem which makes it great when pairing with pants, shorts or skirts.

Wedgwood Skirt Pattern

The Wedgwood skirt pattern is ready for all you lovely ladies.

Every girl needs a pleated skirt in their wardrobe, something I didn’t realize until I started designing this pattern.  You see I wasn’t really a skirt wearing girl, sure I wore them occasionally but I just always found something I preferred to wear instead.  But once I started sewing and resewing the Wedgwood skirt pattern I realized just how much I enjoy the versatility of a high waisted skirt.  You can dress it up with heels and a silk shirt or keep it casual with a tee shirt and converse.  I am already dreaming of wearing one of these in the summer with a Greenwood tank and my favourite Birkenstocks.

Montlake Tee Pattern

After what feels like a marathon of pattern testing with the greatest bunch of ladies around I am happy to be here today sharing my newest sewing pattern with all of you, Montlake.

This tee is everything you would want out of a new closet staple.  With clean lines and a great shape you can view it as a blank canvas to play around with different knits.  One of my testers couldn’t have put it better when she described this pattern to me, simple fashion.  Sometimes we just need some simple fashion in our lives and the Montlake tee is that.

Greenwood is Finally Here!!

I am so excited to be joining Swhetty Betties Aspiring Designers Challenge again.  These challenges are just what I need to get my butt in gear and release my pattern.  It’s easy to have a pattern sit on your computer just waiting for a few things, trust me I have at least 3 patterns in various stages of completion on my computer right now.  The pattern I am releasing today, Greenwood, is the first pattern in my new collection Straight Stitch Basics.  This is the most ‘me’ pattern I have made to date and I am really quite excited about sharing it with all of you.

Comfort Meets Elegance – Bellevue

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.

Introducing Bellevue!

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.
