I thought that December was going to be a quiet month.  With everybody getting ready for Christmas and the holiday season I was very surprised at how many patterns were released.

Wearing History introduced a new 1940s inspired blouse pattern – Dahlia

By Hand London in conjunction with Katie have created a Circle Skirt web app.  This neat tool does the required calculations for you to easily construct a full, half or quarter circle skirt.

Fehr Trade is an avid runner and has just released two athletic apparel patterns.  I love the look of the top and leggings. They are made by a runner for runners.  She also has an excellent list of where to buy exercise fabric.

I think Rebublique du Chiffon have released two patterns this month.  From what I can gather from their french blog they are Rita (skirt) and Penelope (dress).

Pauline Alice released her third pattern – the very versatile Ninot jacket. There is also a girls version if you wanted to make mummy/daughter matchy matchy.

Spearmint was added to Lolita’s line up. This coat has great design features and it does really suit everyone!

Named patterns released a neckwear collection which consisted of a tie and bowtie and was only on sale until Christmas. 

Salme sewing patterns latest is a buttonless shirt dress.  This simple dress would be a great canvas for a fabulous fabric.  This is my pick of the month and is at the top of my wish list.

Style Arc regularly release patterns and this month I think they released three.  They were the Alisha lace dress and camisole, and two athletic wear patterns Steffi jacket and Monica Pant.

The popular Washi dress has undergone a makeover with Made by Rae creating an expansion pack.  The pack gives instructions and inspiration to modify the already very versatile Washi dress pattern.

Kitschy Coo has created her second pattern – the Penny Pinafore for teens and women.  I can see this becoming as popular as her Lady Skater.

Rachael from House of Pinheiro has released the Brasilia dress pattern (in one size only) for free on Craftsy and Kollabora.

Fit for Art has created an “add-on” to their Eureka! Pants that fit pattern – Trouser details.

Tessuti released two simple yet brilliant new patterns this month – the Zoe top (which is free!) and the stunning Camilla camisole.

That about wraps up all of the new patterns that I have come across in the last month.  Please let me know if there are others that I should add to the list.
