We are so excited to showcase the two latest patterns to our sewing pattern range. So, without further ado, let us introduce you to the new Avid Seamstress sewing patterns ready to swing their way to your sewing table.
Inspired by classic tailoring, we’ve created a coat pattern that not only looks fabulous but is an easy, enjoyable make – without the time-consuming tailoring.
The Coat has a slim silhouette with a modern twist. It’s super light with just a buggy lining (the front is faced and the back has a half lining) that you can finish with beautiful, bias binding or leave raw.
Flattering princess seams feature a clever in-seam pocket, while the modern drop sleeves make for a relaxed yet stylish look. The Coat sewing pattern is incredibly versatile, working with heavy to lightweight fabrics. Other features include a notched collar, 2 button front closure and a kick pleat.
Sizes UK 6 – UK 22
The Gathered Dress – Adult
You may recognise this beauty! Our kids version was so popular and we had so many requests to produce the adult version that we had to oblige. We are pretty pleased with it!
If you’re looking for a casual dress that you can live in any day of the week and feel good wearing, then The Gathered Dress is perfect for you. From the school run to the office, The Gathered Dress will help you to feel stylishly smart yet comfortable.
A charming gathered waist at the back makes for an interesting and different style line nd is ideal for days when you don’t feel like wearing fitted clothes. Other features include a slim front silhouette, invisible zip and two different sleeve lengths. We’ve also added a dart at the shoulder to create an amazing finish. It’s an ideal pattern for beginners as well as intermediates that want a quick, easy sew.
