April has had loads of new sewing patterns to keep us all inspired! We have brought you a bitesize roundup of all the new sewing pattern 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 April 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 April.
Fiona’s top three dressmaking pattern releases for April:
“I’m a little bit obsessed with every sample I’ve seen of the new Fenway Bra from Orange Lingerie. It looks to be so versatile in terms of what you can do with lace and sheer panels and I absolutely love the shape which is baseball inspired, hence the name!”
“Released with this month’s edition of Seamwork Magazine were the Gretta Top and Leonora Skirt. I adore the skirt which has all the traditional features of a denim garment with flat felled seams, a back yoke and jeans style stitching and hardware. I’m hopeful that this is a sign of good things to come from their new approach and that future patterns will continue to have this level of detail.”
“The much anticipated Eve Dress from Sew Over It was released this month. It’s a gorgeous romantic wrap style which is perfect for showcasing a beautiful viscose or cotton lawn with the option for dramatic flutter sleeves and a high low hem. I love my test version!”
