NEW pattern out now! The Clover Dress!

I'm a big fan of the New Zealand Fashion industry, we have produced some pretty amazing designers, and I think it's about time I share a slice of it with you all.

I've teamed up with local NZ Fashion Designer Brooke Tyson to bring you our latest pattern, The Clover Dress.  

Brooke Tyson's eclectic collections have captured influences from music, movies, art, ethnic and tribal cultures, and a love of travel. Her look is a little bit folk and a little bit romantic; whimsical and mischievous, dramatic but unpretentious and feminine with a directional edge. Celebrating Free spirits, every one of Brooke’s garments is designed and made with love in New Zealand with incredible attention to detail. Many of her designs have intricate, handmade inserts and are hand finished in her studio in the bohemian settlement of Puhoi, north of Auckland. 

The Clover Dress is a design from one of her previous collections, and now she's sharing it with us!  How lucky are we?!

It is such a delight to wear. It features a swingy skirt, bound neckline, raglan sleeves, bust panel detailing, and a cute tassel belt, so you'll stand out whilst also feeling comfortable!  And the best part is that you can now make one for yourself! Whether you make it up as a casual or glamorous dress is completely up to you and how you choose to style it. 

We've put our mark on this pattern by adding a shorter blouse variation, so you're covered for all occasions. The Clover can be made from both a woven fabric or a knit and is such a quick make, you'll want several! With endless fabric options to use as your bust panel you can now make the Clover your very own.

This pattern is available as a digital PDF file or as a beautifully packaged pattern and comes in sizes XXS - XL.

To celebrate the launch, for the next three days - until Wednesday 27th, 6pm NZT, we will be offering 15% off this pattern!  Just use the discount code "CLOVER" at checkout.
