New Serendipity Patterns ….

2 latest Serendipity patterns – The Marilyn Dress and the Naomi Dress – £9.50 each


Let your inner starlet shine with the Marilyn Dress!  Design details include a full gathered knee length skirt, close fitting V-neck bodice with subtle gathering at the bustline, and a wide pointed waistband that fits just above the natural waist. The back features a V-neckline and center zipper. Variations include bias trim at the waist and hem as well as the use of contrasting fabrics for the waistband. This dress is perfection when paired with a great border print!


Bask in simple style this spring and summer with the Naomi Dress.

This beginners dress pattern is a simple pull-over design, so there is no pesky zipper to worry about! The bodice features three pleats at the front neckline, optional keyhole detail at the back neckline, and small cap sleeves. The elevated waistband has a curved center front with elastic that extends around to the back for an easy custom fit. The A-line skirt has the option to be longer in the back or layered in multiple fabrics. Would make up beautifully in John Kaldor or Liberty Tana Lawns on the website.

Eliza M Dressmakers Tracing Paper We are now selling dressmakers tracing paper from Eliza M.  Available in 2 sizes: 1M x 1M  (£1.30) and 1M x 2M (£2.60) lengths.  Durable and translucent to trace your pattern off from the original to keep it intact.

I asked Claire from Eliza M why it is so important to use tracing paper to trace out your patterns … “ it makes your pattern last so much longer by tracing them off.  Using this fantastic new grade dressmakers’ tracing paper you can keep using your patterns again and again for years and years.  A good idea as shapes and sizes change over time!  You simply place over your original pattern and trace or wheel over your desired pattern markings and your pattern stays as new!”
