New pattern : the patsy overalls
If you like overalls, you'll love Patsy!
I'm very excited to announce the Patsy overalls is finally here! The pattern is available from size 32 to 58. The instruction booklet is traduced in french, english and spanish.
The Patsy overall, with its discreet pockets, pretty gathers and slightly cropped length was designed with beginner sewists in mind - especially those who are looking to add something with a little character to their wardrobes. Patsy does not require any closures (no zipper, buttons or snaps!).
The Pépite collection was designed specifically for motivated beginners and seamstresses who love simple and quick projects. As I created this collection, I considered the following four requirements:
1 - The design must not require any notions apart from the fabric, thread and pattern (no zippers, no buttons, no snaps)
2 - All designs must be appropriate for advanced beginner to intermediate level sewers.
3 - The search for simplicity and ease in sewing should not be to the detriment of style and form.
4 - All patterns must call for a fabric that can be natural such as linen, hemp or ramie canvas. There is no point in blaming sewists for their use of rayon if we only design patterns that look good in those kind of fabrics.
The idea was to create a mini-collection with a sleek but nevertheless original design.
The Patsy overalls are a quick and easy sewing project as it doesn't require any notions apart from the fabric. However, if the diferencial between your waist and full hips is very important, you may need to grade between sizes and therefore insert an invisible zipper in the side seam. This garment works for every seasons. With a cute crop top in summer (if you dare wearing crop tops ;-) and a mock turtleneck in winter, you can even wear the Pekka jacket over it.
The Patsy overalls is rated as " advanced beginner ". It has a very simple approach used to achieve ordinarily quite challenging techniques such as sewing pockets. The instructions are ; as usual ; very detailed and you can get some help by following the sew along ! It is a great pattern for a beginner trying to stretch her skills. If you need to make alteration to the pattern to fit your measurements (Lengthening or shortening, enlarging crotch or full bust adjustment) you can follow these tutorials from the blog.
