With well drafted sewing patterns for wovens becoming harder to find as the preferred jersey knit patterns seem to be increasing in popularity, I was happy to see Itch to Stitch's new pattern was another designed for wovens! I have to admit, I was just a little outside my comfort zone on this one as I've never worn a jumpsuit before, so I signed up for testing out the dress version only but a combination of curiosity and trust in the designer led me to trying the jumpsuit too! AND I'm glad I went with it as it's opened up a whole new avenue to explore and create with this Summer!
You have probably noticed the blog has been quite quiet recently, this is due to me taking a break from pattern testing for a while to get some other things sorted. With those done, I popped online to see a few open tester calls from a couple of my favourite designers and jumped straight in! What better way to get my 'sew-jo' back than with some excellently drafted feminine makes?! So the first I'm sharing with you is the beautiful flounced skirt from Itch to Stitch*. I don't usually wear skirts in the winter but with some boots and tights, I might just start!
