new pattern POCKET TOP

The sweet and girly POCKET TOP.

The pattern for the POCKET TOP is now available from my Etsy shop and can be made with or without shoulder straps, buttons or pockets. The shape is loose and relaxed, perfect for a long hot summer. 

The POCKET TOP is shown above with a pair of FLAPPER SHORTS and below with the MINNIE MINI and an ICHIGO BAG.  The fabric for the top and shorts came from Tessuti, the vintage bobble buttons were found at L'uccello and the fabric for the MINNIE MINI is by Umbrella Prints  Details for the ICHIGO BAG can be found right here.


new pattern THE LONG SKINNY

 An amalgamation of two of my favourite t-shirts, THE LONG SKINNY combines all the things I loved most into the perfect stretchy knit top...extra long length, curvy side seams that sit close to the body, long skinny sleeves with subtle flared cuffs, a comfortable armhole depth, and a flattering and practical round neck, not too high, not too low.

The pattern for THE LONG SKINNY is available from my Etsy shop in Australian sizes 8-14.  It's super quick to make and comes in two variations; a raw edged version with rolled neck binding or for a more polished finish, with twin needled hems and a classic bound neckline as shown here.  Check out the HOW TO section for more detailed instructions.

Perfect for layering it's shown below with the JUMP PANT and a Rowan sweater designed by Kim Hargraves called JACK (Rowan magazine #30) which I knitted in Kidsilk Haze (the left overs were used for THE SNARF)
