May 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 May.
Fiona’s top three dressmaking pattern releases for May:
“The new Oslo Coat from Tessuti has totally stolen my heart. Released just in time for winter in the southern hemisphere, the classic clean lines of this double breasted style with shawl collar and wonderfully classy. I want to own that blue plaid sample!”
“The silhouette of the new Gaston Trousers from Republique du Chiffon is so on trend this season. If you’ve been following my Me Made May on Instagram you’ll have noticed I’m enjoying floaty cropped culottes a lot recently but seeing these has made me question whether my wardrobe needs a more structured twill pair.”
“It feels like I am seriously tempted by a new release from Wear Lemonade nearly every month and their new Daria Dress is no exception! The tie front detail is really appealing to me at the moment and I’m loving it worked into a shirtdress with a full-skirted fifties vibe. I’m intrigued by the construction.”
