Fresh Stitch Patterns grand opening

I was recently very lucky to take part in a pattern testing for the grand opening of Fresh Stitch Patterns - Kylie the designer has created some really beautiful designs and her instructions are very easy to follow.

The first pattern I tested was the Playgroup Dress - this dress has such lovely lines, and I love how you can create your own style depending on the fabrics you use

The hem line is enclosed by the contrast band at the bottom, making a really neat finish

Little B loves twirling in this dress!

The second pattern I tested was the On The Move Bloomers - so cute for wearing under a dress or tunic, but also look fab on their own!

These were so quick to sew up and again the instructions were great and really easy to follow 

Litte B enjoyed some jumping on the bed to test these out!!

And finally I tested the Wattle Brush Dress - this has such a cute bubble hemline - I have sewn bubble hems before and not been entirely happy with them, but Kylie has used a different method in her pattern to any I have seen before, and not only is it easier, it's also much more effective!

The dress is fully lined which makes for a really neat finish inside and out, and there is a quickie method for anyone in a hurry to finish, and a slightly longer method that gives a real professional finish.

The dress was a hit with Little B!

So, head on over to the Etsy shop - - if you're quick you can just catch the end of the grand opening sale - all patterns are $1.50 with the code 'grandopen' - this is SUCH a bargain for some beautiful patterns and will not be repeated!!!
