So ... we are very pleased to be stocking this new range of patterns designed by the lovely Andrea from Experimental Space Patterns, 

 We caught up with Andrea to find out a bit more out her and her patterns

 At the moment there are 3 patterns in the range.  Evelyn - blouse/top, Josie - blouse and Casey - sweater.

Andrea introduced herself as.....
"Hi! I'm Andrea and I run Experimental Space. I've always enjoyed crafty hobbies and as of about 10 years ago started writing knitting patterns in my free time. I have since moved into sewing patterns and decided as of January to leave my job to focus on my sewing patterns full time. I absolutely love what I do and I've found the sewing community to be so amazingly supportive which makes it such a wonderful environment to work in.
My main focus when putting a new design together is that it will be enjoyable to make and rewarding to wear. With that in mind, I try to include enough interesting details while still keeping the instructions clear and easy to follow.
I love to encourage sewists to expand their skills and try new things. I think a lot of sewists assume they aren't capable of making certain things, but I believe a well-written pattern with clear instructions, and further help if they want it, will build confidence in their sewing and show them they can"
A bit more about the patterns ....

Josie blouse has a trio of pretty pleats run over the shoulder and down into the sleeve.  Opening up into a floaty bishop sleeve finishing with extended cuffs.  Ideal for any fabric with a nice drape - viscose, rayon, crepe, georgette or any light to medium-weight woven fabric.


 Evelyn Blouse/Top is a beautifully drapey blouse with an upright collar flowing down to a flattering v-neck front detail and set in sleeves finished with pretty slit openings on the cuffs.  Suitable for any light to medium-weight woven fabric with plenty of drape.  We're going to try it in the Liberty Tana Lawns which will be a great match. 

Casey Sweater a pretty pullover sweater with button details at the neck, long shaped cuffs and comfortable deep pockets.  Make up in Frency terry or sweatshirt or any knit material with a bit of stretch.  Contrast fabric in a lighterweight frech terry or ponte roma etc etc.


 Paper patterns, well presented in delightfully illustrated A5 size outer envelopes.

All 3 patterns are available here on the website  at just £14.00 each.

We look forward to seeing what Andrea will be bringing out next.  Enjoy!
