The New Year has start off with loads of new sewing patterns to keep us all inspired! We have bought you a bitesize roundup of all the new releases and we have got Fiona from Diary of a Chainstitcher blog who’s given us her top three picks for the month. 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 January and why she likes the patterns so much.
We have also made a video where Kate chats through some of our favourite new pattern releases from January.
Fiona’s top three dressmaking pattern releases for January:
The new release from Orange Lingerie has got me wishing I had some lingerie sewing experience under my belt already. The Esplanade Bra is a longline style and I have a newfound motivation to work up to sewing something that beautiful!
One of the last releases of the month was the Wanted T-Shirt from Vanessa Pouzet. To be honest I would have thought there was nothing more a t-shirt pattern could offer as there are such a plethora of knit top patterns available online but this is a stunner that has absolutely earned a place on my wish list. That deep square neckline is super sexy.
Sew Over It’s first PDF release of the year is right up my alley. The Nancy Dress is a 1960s inspired swing dress with three quarter length sleeves and lovely single button fastening at the nape of the neck. I want to live in dresses like this and will admit to already having fabric bought and pre-washed and ready for my first one!
