Introducing a new ladies sewing pattern….Meet Angie!

Introducing a new ladies sewing pattern. The Angie pattern is the latest addition to the Bobbins & Buttons pattern range and another wardrobe stable. A classic semi-fitted t-shirt with a choice of sleeve lengths and two neckline options.

The Angie sewing pattern is designed to be made in jersey fabric with at least a 50% stretch. The pattern includes three sleeve lengths – full length, three quarters and short. There are two neckline options a classic crew neckline and a gentle scoop that’s not to low!

I think this is one of those super practical styles that caters for all sorts of wardrobe gaps. Its the perfect style to wear with a pinafore or dungarees, I quite like to downsize my Angie top for a closer fit with pinafores. Its a quick make if you need a simple top to complete an outfit. It is also a perfect blank canvas for hacks and embellishment.

The style features a narrow neckband in self fabric. I will be publishing a tutorial with extra tips for applying this neckband very soon. Once you have mastered the neckband the Angie pattern is really easy to roll out in a short space of time.

Of course we stock lots of lovely fabrics perfect for making the Angie sewing pattern. Art Gallery knits are ideal if you are looking for something special, beautiful prints and a super soft handle. There is a kaleidoscope of plain cotton/elastane jersey fabrics, a rainbow of stripe options and lots of different prints available.

I hope you enjoy the new pattern. It is available as a paper pattern or a pdf downloadable pattern. If you feel like sharing your makes on social media we would love to see them. Don’t forget to tag us or use #releaseyourhandmade so we can find you.

I still vividly remember watching with amazement as the tiny perfectly formed stitches were created as I turned the handle. I Grew up in the 70’s and 80’s when buying clothes was less affordable and dressmaking was an answer to updating your wardrobe more regularly. My own mother was a talented dressmaker who made most of my clothes and my sisters clothes as well as a many for herself. I soon got involved with making my clothes, I loved the whole experience of picking out fabrics, trims and a pattern to create a new outfit, then going home to make a new garment or outfit. When it came to leaving school I visited a careers advisor who asked what I wanted to do next. My answer was ..Sew! Read more...
