New Colette Hawthorn pattern + a few more Liberty Tana Lawns at Sewbox …

by Susan on June 18, 2013

New Liberty Tana Lawn instock at Sewbox … but 1st the new Colette Hawthorn pattern has just been launched an hour ago …

Here’s a sneak preview

Turn heads in this curve-hugging classic that combines gamine styling with a flattering and feminine fit.

A semi-circle skirt provides volume without the extra bulk of pleats or gathers at your waist, so you get a clean, streamlined look that’s still beautifully feminine. The bodice is fitted with waist darts, while still providing just enough room to keep things comfortable.

While a flat collar and fitted shape give Hawthorn that late 1950s charm, menswear-inspired details like the sleeve cuff and placket lend classic touches that never go out of style. You’ll be wearing Hawthorn year round, easily styling it with belts, cardigans, and jewelry.

Version 1 is a short sleeved peplum blouse, which pairs perfectly with a pencil skirt or our slim Clover pants. Version 2 has 3/4 length sleeves with a cuff and menswear-style placket. Version 3 is sleeveless, with armholes finished with bias tape inside (so no annoying facings poking out).

As I say just launched today, the patterns are en route from the US due here any day now.  If you would like me to reserve you a pattern e-mail me on and I’ll let you know as soon as they arrive. The Colette Hawthorn sew-along starts next week!

Now back to the new Liberty Tana Lawns – Capel (Red), Meadow and more…..

Capel Red and Meadow have been requested by customers who have already purchased the corresponding Bias Binding on the Site and now wanted the fabric.

Both look good with a plain block colour to set them off.

The fabrics are £16.95/M and the bias is on special at £2.60/M.  Several other Liberty print bias bindings to choose from as well ….

New Pattern ranges here any day now…

Sewbox will now be stocking the Victory patterns from Canada (paper versions) and the 1st pattern from the BlueGingerdoll range – the Billie Jean Dress from Australia.  Watch this space.
