Introducing the new collection CONSTELLATION!

Introducing the new collection CONSTELLATION!

After a LOT of hard work, sweat and tears, I'm really excited to announce the arrival of my new Collection "Constellation". I've created six new patterns with so MANY variations!

 I wanted this collection to be really versatile and transcend seasons, some wardrobe classics that you can really make your own.

 I have taken inspiration from all things celestial, reflecting in geometric shapes and metallics. Each Pattern is named after a star within the Orion Constellation, the brightest in our Winter skies. So let me introduce you...

Saiph Tunic.  It can be made in two different ways, one has a straight hem with in seam pockets (the perfect mod tunic) the other with a circular frilled hem.

*disclaimer... it is a Tunic, it is short and designed to wear over leggings or pants, it has just been styled this way because she looks AMAZING in it, am I right? :)

Rigel Bomber.  Rigel can also be made two different ways.  They are both raglan sleeve bomber jackets with a low v and welt pockets, but one has a standard raglan sleeve and the other has cool geometric detail in the sleeve head which gives you all sorts of options for mixing it up!  I've used gold leather and metallic wool in my shoulder panels.

Sigma Dress.  You can make her with a long or short sleeve, gathered or straight skirt and she has pockets people!  I know how much you love those :)

Bellatrix Blazer.  Once again, options options... there is a long hemline, giving you a classic blazer or a cropped hemline with curves up at the back, perfect for putting over dresses!  You can make a standard or contrast lapel.  You can really make it your own.

Meissa Blouse.  She makes the perfect silk blouse.  Cute shoulder detail, front and back yokes with gathers coming from them.  Double button front closure.

And last but not least, Ensis Tee.  You can make this colour blocked beauty with sleeve and hem cuffs to make the perfect little jersey, or a slightly cropped sleeve and curved hemline for the perfect summer tee.

I hope you love this collection as much as I do!  I would love to hear what you think.

I'm offering a 15% discount on all new patterns until Friday 15th November, so get in quick!

Oh, and I almost forgot.... all new patterns now have one extra size!  They now go up to size XL.
