The Billie Collection
The Billie Collection comes with four pattern options to pimp your handmade wardrobe.
This is our first pattern designed by Rachel Pinheiro from House of Pinheiro sewing blog. Rachel came up with this fantastic design and we have brought the pattern to life! The pattern comes with four versions: two dress variations, a top and a pleated skirt.
The two dresses have bust darts as well as open ended fish-eye darts at the front and back, so no waist seam needed. The open ended fish-eye darts make fitting easy as these can be adjusted to the contours of your body shape plus they create a fuller skirt. You can finish them at the waist or hip depending on which suits your body shape. The neckline is angular in shape and the stylised shoulders also come with the option of adding a contrasting fabric insert. There is also a full facing and of course pockets. The dresses close with an invisible zip at the centre back.
The top is the perfect partner for jeans or a pencil skirt. It has bust and waist darts plus the same angular neckline and stylised shoulder as the dresses. In addition it has a soft ruffle at the waist. There is an exposed zip at the back that runs from the neckline past the waist so the top can be opened out fully (completely unzipped!)
The skirt has box pleats at the front and back with in seam pockets and a narrow waistband. At the back there is also an exposed zip. This version is perfect for beginners to dressmaking.
The pattern comes with step-by-step instructions and colour photographs to help you with every sewing stage.
This sewing pattern is available in PAPER format.
