The Sewing Pattern Releases – April


It’s been another busy month of new pattern releases with plenty of new dresses and separates, check out all the dressmaking possibilities below! If you want to join a sew-along or are looking for pattern hacks, keep an eye on our sewing resources hub for updates. Keeping track of all the new pattern releases can be tough so we’ve put together a bitesized round up for April with the lovely Fiona of Diary of a Chainstitcher blog @diaryofachainstitcher. Fiona has a great sewing blog where she showcases her makes with really useful and detailed reviews of each pattern. She has kindly given us her top three releases for April and why she likes the patterns so much.

We’ve also included some other new releases we’ve added to the site with links to check out the sewing pattern reviews or post your own.

“The new Audrey Shirt from Tessuti Fabrics looks super chic made up in solid black in their sample photos. The tie under the bust is one of those design details that hits the perfect balance between unique and wearable.”

Victory Patterns – Hannah Dress

“One of my favourite releases this month and one that will probably be making it’s way into my pattern collection soon is the Hannah Dress from Victory Patterns. I love an original design that looks like it would be challenging and different to sew and theres lots of little details in this dress that set it apart for me. I’m in love with that wrap back!”

Closet Case Files – Morgan boyfriend jeans

“I just love the fact that not only are home sewers making their own jeans now; we actually have choices when it comes to the style! Heather Lou has hit the nail on the head with her Closet Case Files Morgan Boyfriend Jeans and I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot of these popping up on the internet over the next few months.”
