I've spent the last few days zooming in and out of lines, measuring lines, checking lines.... seeing lines in my sleep.... adding notches, size labels, text...
The new All Seasons Coat will soon be available as the Tween Seasons Coat - Sizes 8-14 for girls.
I feel a bit proud of the line drawings I constructed using my patternmaking software.... they're only tiny on the pattern instructions so I have to put them up here to show them off a bit more. They show the swing styles with the variations of belt and hood.
With a bit of testing and tweaking ahead of me, there's time to organise a quick giveaway.
If you'd like to win yourself a copy of either the All Seasons Coat or the Tween Seasons Coat, leave a message in the comment box, mentioning which size you'd like to win and which variation you'd make first. I'll draw a winner when the pattern is released.... hopefully in a week or so.
We had a great Zippers for Bags class on Saturday.
I'm not sure what these girls had for breakfast, but they ZOOMED through the techniques and made lots of zippered bag components.... more than I've seen any other time I've taught this class.
My next Zippers for Bags class is at Addicted to Fabric in Canberra on 21st September (and a Hats workshop is on the 22nd September).
I'm also teaching a hats class here in Northcote on 7th September. There's one place left on that one.
an up-side to being the size of the average 12-year-old...).
