Hey peops! Guess what?! None other than Sally of Charity Shop Chic, launches her own range of sewing patterns as of 9:30 this morning under the trading name Capital Chic Patterns…
Readers of this blog will no doubt remember Sally’s epic trench coat refashion as part of last year’s The Refashioner series. Proof if it were needed of Sally’s epic drafting skills. So this range of patterns promises to be meticulously drafted!
Named after cocktails, (methinks Sally has a penchant for cocktails!) each of the PDF patterns comes with two variations included. The collection comprises two skirt patterns, a blouse pattern, a sweatshirt pattern and two dress patterns. Each of the designs is inspired by the catwalk, red carpet fashion and London street style.
The patterns’ difficulty ranges from intermediate to advanced, perfect for those looking to move on from sewing beginner styles. Techniques such as using boning, French seams and machine-rolled hems are explained in detail; following each set of fully-illustrated instructions is a great way for sewists to learn and improve their sewing repertoires. The patterns are available now for digital download from www.capitalchicpatterns.com as print-at-home and print-at-copyshop PDF files. The patterns currently come in five sizes, from UK 10 to UK 18, and they are nested for easy blending between sizes.
And courtesy of Sally, one lucky reader of this blog can win their choice of pattern from the range to try out for themselves! Simply leave a comment below detailing how I can contact you….and for a bit of fun…tell me what YOUR favourite cocktail is….you never know…it may even end up as the name of one of Sally’s patterns 😉 Giveaway closes at midnight (GMT) on Monday 30th June.
