Every month there are lots of new sewing patterns released. I follow designers’ blogs, facebook pages and twitter accounts to keep up with the latest offereings. At the end of each month I compile the list of new patterns. If you want to find out about the patterns the instant that I do then follow me on twitter @sew_independent.
In no particular order, here are the new sewing paterns for February 2014.
Judy was also brought out by Tessuti at the end of January. It is a stylish button front blouse that is a great laying piece.
Mari from Disparate Disciplines keeps coming out with unique and thoughtful designs. This time she has created a pair of tights. The rose hip tights pattern will allow you to make your own pair of cool and hip tights that will be one-of-a-kind.
Lisette (Oliver and S) have announced their latest pattern for Simplicity – the Round trip dress and jacket. The jacket is a cute bolero style with a tuxedo collar. The dress also has a sleeved version with an option to omit the peterpan collar.
Also if you are a fan of the Oliver and S patterns they are now releasing some of their more popular patterns as singles. Most of their patterns are for an outfit (top and pants). Now you can buy just the piece that you want at a reduced price. Briliant.
It is worth mentioning that Named patterns are currently in the process of updating their First Named collection. After listening to customer feedback they are making some changes to the patterns, updating the instructions and paper formats. Also from memory you used to only purchase a single size pattern (like Style Arc) and the prices were a lot higher. It is great to see them making changes for the better.
Sewaholic has two new patterns this month and they are absolutely stunning.
The Belcarra blouse was specifically designed as a companion for the Gabriola maxi skirt. I love this look. Use a classic solid and your favourite print as either the shirt or the skirt to make a stunning outfit.
Coco is the latest design from Tilly and the Buttons. This is a very versatile pattern and would make a great wardrobe basic. It includes variations for a top and tunic dress with different sleeve lengths and a cute funnel neck option.
This month Tilly also announced her new book Love at first stitch which is available for preorder.
For a great pattern for a pair of shorts you can’t go past Make It Perfects’ essential shorts. These look both comfortable and very flattering with a straight leg that sits just above the knee.
The out and about dress is the first pattern from Sew Caroline. Featuring a maxi version this pattern is great for any season.
The Centre for Pattern design has released the new Angel dress pattern. It is a classic Vionette (I had to look that up). This two piece pattern cut on the bias is anything but simple. The one shouldered version makes a stunning gown.
The Makers journal have brought out the Little ‘Girls’ Triangle bra. Looking fabulous in liberty.
Republique du chiffon have designed a very cute dress, Georgina, that has a very interesting back.
The Carrollton Ave dress by Seemingly Smitten is another great wardrobe basic, a knit dress. With cap sleeves, round neckline and a semi circle skirt this dress flatters most bodies. And for those that like to make matchy matchy for their daughters there is a little girls version too.
Do you ever feel like you know you have forgotten something? I am sure that there is a pattern that I have not mentioned. Please get in touch if you know what it is.
Edited to add –
Maria Denmark brought out two new patterns this month as well. I can’t believe I missed these! The Pernille Dress and the Oliva oversized tee. The Pernille dress is also available in two sizes and cates for a C or a B cup.
Please excuse the text on the images below. I had to take screen shots to show you just how fabulous these patterns are.
