August has been a quieter month for new sewing patterns, as we’ll all been enjoying the holidays. We have brought you a bitesize roundup of all the new sewing pattern releases from the last month. We have also made a video where Kate chats through some of our favourite new pattern releases from August. 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 August and why she likes the patterns so much.
Fiona’s top three dressmaking pattern releases for August:
“Greenstyle Creations released the Tie Back Tank. I kind of wish that this had been released earlier in the summer as it’s just what I’ve been after for running in the heat! I love that it comes with various neckline, back and finishing options.”
“I’ve been working away from home for a large part of this month but one releases which had me desperate to run home to my sewing machine is the Kew Dress from Nina Lee London. The version with the cold shoulders in particular has an effortlessly feminine yet contemporary appeal.”
“I was hunting high and low for the perfect maxi dress pattern for a piece of floral viscose in my stash when the new Summer Dawn Wrap Dress from Striped Swallow Designs popped up in my feed! It has just the cut and small sleeves I was after except it’s designed for knits…back to the drawing board or maybe an excuse to shop for some jersey?!”
