So whilst doing a very quick scroll on the Fold line site’s Pattern reviews, I came across a review for designer stitch’s Tunic. Not having heard of Designer Stitch, I quickly gave it a google expecting the worst (the sizes only go up to a 16, meaning some serious grading up) but I was pleasantly surprised. And if you haven’t heard of them yet – great something new to you too!
Designer Stitch is definitely ticking boxes with the size range – from UK size 6-26 and wait for it, A0 options for printing at the copy shop.
I’m liking the look of the “Gypsy Tunic dress” as it’s somewhat very similar to the Sew house Seven’s “Bridgetown Dress”. It fact the back detail is the only difference at first glance.
Then I spot the “Alyse Slim Leg Pant” whilst skimming through the other (many patterns ladies!), could these be an alternative to sizing for the SOI “Ultimate Trousers”? OMG!!
They definitely look like they can be made in cotton span and stretch denim and if I make them into a cropped length, then they would be perfect for summer.
This could be dangerous. VERY dangerous! I think I may have cracked out a maaahhhhhovsive can of worms on this one!
I think next month I’m going to be doing one or two PDF purchases from Designer Stitches shop, the problem is narrowing it down – ARGGGHHHH.
My pattern collection is getting huge …

Blimey, March has come up all rosy with these crackers!
I’m pretty sure I found all of these whilst on The Fold Line website. The Fold Line itself is a great encyclopaedia for us sewists, I keep finding loads on the forum. It’s something I’d recommend to anyone who sews as most questions have been asked and answered!
http://beebeeshandmadedress.blogspot.co.uk/ – I can’t remember why I clicked but I’m sure happy I did as a Seamwork “Mesa” was reviewed and shown off by the lovely Stevie. It’s been one of the Seamwork patterns that have been on my radar and really must get down as I’m sure Little Miss Lorraine has done one as well and it looks so good!
https://sewinprogress.com/2017/02/25/the-saunio-cardigan/ – As you can see the title just cries out with the saunio cardigan! Ha Ha and I’m not quite sure if you know that I wasn’t particularly blown away at first. Well that changed, thanks to this version and a whole lot of other versions of Saunio. I love her layout of her blog as well.
https://stitchingupparisblog.wordpress.com/tours/ – Who wouldn’t run around in sheer hyper happiness shouting “yes, Yes YES” to Fabric tours in Paris? Personally, I love a macaron, but combining a tour with fabric and Paris is sheer amazing in my books … I wonder who many pennies I would have at the end of one of these tours? Probably zilch! I better started saving if I want to go!
Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
