So when the Pattern Anthology designers began testing their latest collection for women, I was super-excited to be part of the testing team. Their are 4 patterns in this collection: The Go To Knit Pants, The McCartney Jacket, The Marigold Dress/ Peplum Top, and the Neptune Tee. Potentially, you can mix and match the pieces to get a complete wardrobe.
First up is the Go To Knit Pants. The velour that I used for these pants were seriously a PIA to sew with; the fabric was slippery, thick, and super-stretchy. Nonetheless, I persevered in spite of a lot of seam ripping and cursing, and the result is a comfy, soft, and cozy pair of lounge pants that is in high rotation.
This is the Marigold in the peplum view. I love the details of this dress/top: the gathers at the shoulders, the stand-up collar, the A-line shape of the peplum, all combine to make a feminine and classic silhouette.
And here is the McCartney Jacket. I love how this jacket turned out. I thought about making it in the solid blue, but then decided at the last minute to use this scrap of lace that I had left over from a previous project. I love the tone on tone and the texture the lace ads to the Jacket.
And finally, the Neptune Tee is a basic tee with cute triangle cut-out options for the sleeves and the neckline. I made mine from this rainbow on black knit. I opted for the triangles on the front neckline and the sleeves. This is a great tee to dress up or down for every occasion.
All these patterns come with loads of options, and for the next couple of weeks, are available at a huge discount as a bundle. Check out the Pattern Anthology website to see all the options.
