Christine Haynes patterns now in stock ……
We are delighted to add the Christine Haynes patterns to our range!
US pattern designer Christine Haynes has brought out her first 2 patterns – The Derby Dress and the Chelsea Dress. Both these fun and modern patterns are suitable for beginners and Christine promises more patterns over the next months. Christine who lives in Los Angeles, teaches sewing and has also published her first book Chic & Simple Sewing.
I was chatting to Christine this week and asked her a few questions:
Susan: “What inspires you? I note your statement *Vintage inspired sewing for the modern seamstress*?
Christine: “I’m really inspired by everyday life. I love designing and wearing dresses that you can toss on and go without too much fuss. My favorite eras are the 1950’s and 1960’s and those elements find themselves into my designs. But I’m always very careful not to make anything that looks like a costume. Hence the “vintage inspired” statement!”
We will be bringing you the new patterns as they come out …… The current patterns – the Derby Dress and the Chelsea Dress are available at £15.00 each. Level = Beginner.
Thanks to Christine for designing these 2 and more in the future.
