Hello lovely makers,
It's been just over a month since the release of our newest pattern, Jackie. This pattern has been welcomed with so much enthusiasm. Since Lola, I've had many requests for another knit dress, so I'm thrilled to see that you're excited about this new addition to our collection. It's been so great to see your creations so far and I thought I'd gather a few up to share with you here. It always amazes me how one pattern can achieve so many looks. Hopefully this will serve to inspire you!
Nina made a beautiful, casual grey dress in a heavier cotton T-shirt knit. I love it styles down with Doc Marten's!
Erin used a colourful multi-pattern print scuba knit and added a personal touch with an exposed zipper in place of the keyhole back opening. You can read her review of the pattern here.
Anne made herself a birthday dress and looks so pretty! Her dress is made from a merlot merino wool knit. This fabric has such a beautiful drape!
Marta used a beautiful floral print stretchy cotton velvet. She added her own personal touch by shortening the hem and sleeves, which gives the dress a really sweet, retro vibe. I love how the shorter proportions balance out the weight and texture of the fabric.
Here's another casual version of dress that Isabelle made for her teenage daughter. I love how sleek it looks in contrast with Doc Marten boots. You guys are on to something with your styling!
Kara made a beautiful color blocked dress using a grey tone geometric print with a contrasting solid navy knit. Color blocking is always exciting when your pair two fabric up so perfectly!
From the moment Fleurine saw the Jackie pattern she knew she had to make a floor length version in a deep green velvet knit. The results are breathtaking and her photos are so artistic. I am 100% into anything that looks fresh out of The Sound Of Music, so this dress has me thouroughly impressed! Visit her blog for more breathtaking photos!
I hope these beautiful dresses gave you some ideas for your own creation. I'm currently sewing a black and white striped Jackie dress and let me tell you, stripe matching on these seams is an adventure, but it's going to be worth it! If you'd like to make your own Jackie, order your pattern and share your makes with us on intsagram using the hastage #jackiedresspattern. I can't wait to see what you make!
