New Patterns from Cake and Bluegingerdoll at Sewbox ..

by Susan on September 8, 2013

Two new patterns in stock from the Australian pattern ranges

Cake Pavlova Wrap Top & Skirt

“Ballet style wrap top in jersey, ties at the natural waist while the back tucks into the skirt as a ‘muffin cover.’ The top is cut all in one piece with the sleeves, which may be cut longer or shorter. The four-piece circle skirt makes optimal use of fabric, zips up the back and features a pintucked patch pocket. A strong, simple, neat double binding finishes the waist edge of the skirt.”

“Skirt is suitable for a wide range of woven fabrics, the simple shape will showcase a beautiful weave or texture. The wrap top is suited to a wide range of jersey fabrics- avoid bulky sweater knits as the ties must wrap around the waist.”

£13.00  Multi-size  Suitable for Beginners.

Bluegingerdoll – Mae Blouse

This is the 2nd pattern release from Australian designer – Abby Horskins. 

Mae is a romantic 1940’s inspired blouse. Featuring a flattering scalloped front neckline design, kimono sleeves and fitted front and back waist darts for a flattering feminine figure. Mae is suitable to a variety of fabrics, able to be worn tucked in or out and is ready to you take from day to night. A button down back finishes off this lovely blouse. A versatile and easily adaptable blouse that is wearable in all seasons, day or night, and suits a variety of different fabrics.

Abby is running a sew-along tutorial plus a ‘give away competition’ for this pattern starting 11th Sept 2013 on http://bluegingerdoll.blogspot.com.

£13.50  Multi-size  Suitable for Beginners.

and thanks also to Pauline for showing the Liberty Tana Lawn fabric – Alex Blooms made up into a lovely top.  The larger prints speak for themselves and do not need a detailed or complicated pattern to show them off.
