2015 - bring it on!

The Zelda pattern has gone through the rigours of being tested by my group of intrepid sewists and will soon be published and up for sale as a pdf download....January 5th I hope.

The testing group was marvellous and with their advice I was able to finesse a few details to get the pattern perfect.

Meantime I'm two thirds of the way into putting together the next design. This one is called "Judith" and is a pull over dress, top or skirt with several options. The Judith design can be made as separates - a short sleeve top and elastic waist skirt. Alternately the skirt can be attached to the drop waist bodice and become a dress. The full circle skirt can be left smoothly hanging or be embellished with tucks that add texture and interest. There are two inset pockets at the waistline which add interest with the way they droop open. Though with a button added the pockets don't have to droop.

If all stays on track (!!??) I hope this pattern will be published before the end of January (this year!)

A colourful version, with tucks in the skirt.
 This one was in my recent exhibition and has been sold.
cotton stripes, lots of fun ways to
use stripes with the Judith
