This is Kay Whitt, designer for Serendipity Studio. I will be posting today about my newest designs. These will be available for purchase in mid-October.
I am really excited to share these new designs with you. I think you are going to love them!
First up is the Madeline Maxi Dress. The pattern has tissue pieces for seven sizes, XXS-XXL, included. This dress is semi-fitted with an option to make it knee length. As always I have packed lots of variations into the pattern so that you can express your personal style. I love to use a lot of coordinating fabrics in my designs. It provides you with a lot of opportunites to show off a particular fabric collection. Here are just a couple of the different variations that are included with the pattern:
Next up is the Savannah Swing Jacket. This one is also a tissue pattern with seven sizes included. This easy to fit jacket is featured in two different lengths. There are a lot of options for this jacket. You can make it with or without a collar and there are many choices for finishing out the sleeves with different cuffs. You can make your jacket from all one fabric or choose a few contrasting ones to mix it up a bit. It is best to use a heavier weight fabric for this design, such as a wool, silk, twill, sateen, linen, velveteen, or lightweight corduroy. As an added bonus, the instructions include how to line the jacket. This is optional, but the finished result with the lining is fabulous and I highly recommend it! Here are some images from the pattern:
The next design is my follow-up for the Fashion Formula Skirts booklet that I released last fall. This one is Fashion Formula Skirts, Volume 2! I have included 4 new skirt designs that are based on mathematical formulas. There are no pattern pieces required as all of the skirts are contstructed from strips and rectangles! This is a GREAT way to get going with garment sewing and gets many quilters "over the hump" into making clothes. These skirts are a cinch to make, easy to fit, and look great. Plus they are a great way to bust a stash and show it off in style! Here are just a few of the skirts from the booklet:
Lastly, I am super excited to announce that my second book with Krause is about to be released! This time, I did a whole book devoted to bags. There are 12 original designs with instructions for variations to get 20 bags! The projects are divided into groups according to skill level, so there is something for everyone. I have also included my favorite techniques for making bags. By the time you have made a few bags from my new book, you will be a certified bag expert! Here is the cover and a couple of other bags from the new book. It is scheduled for release with the publisher by the end of the month.
I am proud that United Notions will be carrying all of my new goodies! Hope you have enjoyed my sneak peek! And as always, HAPPY SEWING!
