Find my Pattern: Episode 3
Hi team, Kate here and welcome back to another instalment of find my pattern! Those new to this feature, the premise is that you send in images of ready to wear garments you need in your life and I put my best detective hat and and hunt it our for you. As a self proclaimed pattern nerd… I’m here to help.
I put out a request on Instagram and got loads of lovely emails asking me to help they find what they are after! I whittled down a shortlist and after a few hours I managed to find some pretty good options. Below is a the original image as well as the patterns that we found and we really hope you enjoy!
Silk Wrap Dress:
The dress on the left costs a whopping $1200, so I can see why Liv wanted to find a better option! The Simplicity 8013 ticks a lot of the boxes, long, wrap fronted statement sleeves and a dramatic tie at the side.
This was tricky to find – I don’t think I’ve got the perfect pattern but a mixture of the Amelia jacket with the Serra and I think it’s pretty close. Adding a hood onto the Sew Over it version might be the easiest of the hack options… we’d love to see this finished!
Toast velvet Jumpsuit:
This was an easy hunt, as soon as I saw the Toast jumpsuit I thought of the Vogue 9075! Although not completely the same changing the neckline would make the two pretty similar.
Reiss Maxi Dress:
Up close the Reiss dress has a super deep V.. almost down to the waist so hunting that out was the first point of call. The McCalls 7927 would be a fantastic base shape to work from to recreate this beautiful dress.
Summer Wrap Dress:
Part of a Lisa Comfort magazine this patterns is so close to the picture we got sent through, you’d barely need to make any changes! There is a version of the dress with a ruffle making it bang on!
This TV series had to have the best outfits ever.. this jacket from Villanelle was no exception. A classic tailored jacket made out of a shimmery silk, we thought the Hot Toddy coat was pretty spot on all you’ve got to do it leave off the patch pockets!
Cos Puffa Gilet:
Both the Denali and the Tamarack would work well to recreate this puffa from Cos, it’s a simple shape and it would be easy to make the tweaks you wanted to get it looking just like it!
The Long White Dress:
I thought tis was going to be really hard to find this super sleek elegant dress, but I think the Butterick 6414 is a great starting point – a few simple tweaks and you’ll having it looking just like the picture!
The Loungewear Set:
All I want to be wearing at this time of year is loungewear and this set from Stalf is right up my street. The combo of the Jocko and the Amina means the only thing left to do is hunt out the perfect stripe fabric!
