As we approach the year's end, let's take a stroll down memory lane and highlight our top-selling sewing patterns for 2023:
The Eva Dress is a loose and comfortable style with a high-waisted bodice and a panelled, lantern-shaped skirt with side pockets. It comes in a short-sleeved or sleeveless version, making it versatile for any occasion.
The Fringe pattern offers two different options for a dress or blouse, each with unique features. View A boasts a button-up front, elbow-length sleeves, and a sleeve tab. On the other hand, View B features a pull-over style, a notched front, and a cuff.
The Mitchell trousers offer a contemporary twist to the classic pleated pants. Elegant yet comfortable, they come with distinctive features and are sure to become your favourite bottom wear.
Fabric Recommendations - For a more structured look, use a sturdy woven such as lightweight denim to midweight denim, twill and canvas, and midweight linen, cotton, and wool suiting. For a softer look, use midweight fabrics with drape, such as tencel twill, wool crepe, or silk noil.
The Factory Dress is a vintage-inspired, easy-fit dress with pockets, ready-rolled sleeves, and a slip-over-the-head design. Sizing is based on bust measurement for a comfortable fit, inspired by working women and the 1920s.
The Remy Raglan Top is a classic and effortless garment that can be swiftly crafted. It boasts a comfortable fit around the bust and waist, with a range of three sleeve styles and the added option of a keyhole button closure. Its design is timeless and uncomplicated.
Fabric Recommendations - Although the pattern recommends using lightweight linen, any lightweight woven fabric can be used. However, if you opt for a stiffer material such as cotton lawn, the neckline may appear narrower and the hemline may be more voluminous. It is best to choose a fabric with no discernible wrong side for the short sleeve option.
The Patina Blouse is a charming button-up top with a collar, a V-neckline, and full sleeves. The pattern offers a choice of short or long sleeves, with cuffs and continuous bound plackets. It also comes with two options for neckline depth.
Hovea is a relaxed and comfortable drop shoulder jacket and coat pattern that provides multiple options. This pattern offers various lengths, deep angled pockets, and options for an unlined, fully lined, or quilted garment. Additionally, the pattern includes both belt and tie closures.
Avoid thick fabrics or these versions can become bulky. Medium weight fabrics such as linen, cottons etc or medium to heavy weight coating fabrics such as boiled, felted or suiting wool are recommended for Views A, C & E. Prequilted fabrics are suitable for all views.
Make a fashion statement with the versatile "Mildred" all-season jumpsuit, which is perfect for those breezy summer days or cooler months when paired with your favourite sweater. The slip-on design is made with comfort in mind and features shoulder straps, wide legs, and a 7/8th length leg. The in-seam pockets are an added bonus for convenience.
The Kielo dress and jumpsuit patterns offer a chic and comfortable style that you can easily make your own. Both variations can be sewn with or without sleeves, and the dress pattern includes a neckband and a vent at the back hem for ease of movement. The sleeveless version of the dress features armholes finished with bias binding. The jumpsuit pattern includes a vent with a button closure at the back and a neckline finished with a facing.
Fabric Recommendations - drapey yet sturdy jersey fabric that has about 30-50% stretch. However, be mindful that the garment already has a significant amount of volume, so using a fabric that is too stretchy or heavy can alter the proportions and cause the garment to lose its shape.
Let's also give a special nod to these patterns that have added their own touch of magic to our sewing tapestry:
