If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve probably noticed that there hasn’t been much to follow lately. I’ve been so busy with a toddler and Christmas and then post-Christmas that I haven’t had time for sewing, let alone blogging about what I (haven’t been) sewing. Fortunately testing the Bridget Top from Designer Stitch was the perfect motivation to get back in the game. It’s such a beautiful sew and really reminded me why I love sewing and creating for my personal size and shape as well as picking out beautiful fabric.
Ann from Designer Stitch Patterns drafts some wonderful clothing for woven fabric. The darts, draping, and fabric recommendations help create beautiful outfits. You should get the Bridget Top now while it’s on sale for only $9.00!
There are multiple long sleeve options: bell cufflet, spiral fluted, and split sleeves with ties. The pattern has multiple darts and bust options that really flatter your figure.
There is also a short sleeve add on pack for flutter, mid elbow cufflet, mid elbow gathered cufflet, and mid tiered spiral sleeves. Right now you can use code SLEEVEADDON to get it half price.
If you’ve never sewn an intermediate garment, please don’t be scared to try a new technique or two. Read the instructions, go slowly, ask for help, ask Ann for help in her facebook group, check youtube, etc. I know a lot of people who love sewing and one of the things they love even more than sewing is sharing sewing tips/knowledge so more people will love to sew.
Oh and buy an invisible zipper foot! (I have this set of feet) Can you see how beautiful that zipper is? Trick question because you can’t really see it because it’s “invisible”. 😉
