After a most mammoth and intense period of designing, drafting, editing, testing, re-drafting, re-testing and re-editing, they're finished and done and we're super excited to introduce you to our TWO new patterns - the Sophie Top and Sophie Dress!
First up, the Sophie Dress. This flared design features a single lapel v-neckline with drop waistline and centre back seam. The classic style is finished off perfectly with a dipped hemline at the side seam. The pattern includes options for both sleeveless or three quarter sleeves and is suitable in light to medium weight linens or linen blends, wool crepes and tri-acetate/poly blends.
Next up - the top! The Sophie Top is a loose and slightly flared top that features a single lapel v-neckline with a hemline that sits slightly higher at the front.
The pattern includes options for both sleeveless or three quarter sleeves. Like the Sophie Dress, suitable fabrics include light to medium weight linens
or linen blends, wool crepes
and tri-acetate/poly blends.
As it goes with our entire pattern range, the Sophie Top and Sophie Dress can both be purchased in either hardcopy or digital formats. If you're interested in purchasing either of these patterns (or both!) in the latter PDF format, there's some very important info we'd like you know. First off, it's BIG! To accomodate all sizes and both sleeved and sleeveless options, each pattern comprises four separate pattern sheets. This means that it if you're considering the Print-At-Home option, you're going to need a LOT of time as well as a LOT of sticky tape. Sheets 1 and 3 are made up of thirty pages, sheet 2 is twenty-five (top version) or thirty (dress version) pages and sheet 4 is eighteen pages. As with all our patterns, if you order the digital version you'll get both the Print-At-Home AND Actual Size Print Copy Shop versions. So to save yourself some - ok, a LOT of time, we're strongly recommending the latter option for Sophie.
And we're hearing you on some recent and valued feedback. All digital purchases will now include a new 'Read Me First' sheet. This outlines which pattern pieces can be found on which pattern sheets and will assist you in printing only what you need. Also, to avoid further paper wastage, we've also noted where blank pages appear on our Print-At-Home versions.
Happy Sophie-sewing friends! x
