saler jacket with safor skirt and reina shirt

The day I release new patterns is always stressful, and today is no exception! During the last months, I’ve been working very hard on these 3 new patterns and I’m so happy (and a little bit anxious) to introduce you to the Reina shirt, the Safor skirt and the Saler jacket!

These 3 patterns have been designed as a mini collection: each piece can be worn individualy or as a complete outfit. Depending on the version and the fabric you choose, they can all be dressed-up or casual. I wanted classic pieces but with a twist, easy to wear on a daily basis or for a special occasion and that can be mixed with lots of other garments.

Reina shirt pattern versions

The Reina shirt was inspired by Victorian blouses, with loops fastenings and high cuffs. Wide, with a longer back and deep V-neckline, it can be worn with a skirt or pants quite easily.
There are two options: View A has a tie collar and long sleeves whereas View B is perfect for summer days with short sleeves, mandarin collar and small pockets.

Safor skirt pattern 2 versions

A faux-wrap skirt, the Safor skirt is very modern yet has a classic feel. With the yoke following the body curves and two lengths option, it’s versatile, elegant and confortable.

Finally, the Saler jacket will be perfect all year-round and it just goes with everything. Classic tailored shape with princess seams, flap pockets and two pieces sleeves with button vent, it’s the perfect challenge for seamstresses.

You can find the Reina shirt, the Safor skirt and the Saler jacket in the shop!

I hope you’ll like these new patterns and I’ll be coming back during the week end and next week with details on each pattern.

New Pattern: Eliana Dress

It feels like yesterday I was releasing the Quart coat and here I am, with a new pattern for you! Well, truth be told, I don’t work super fast, but this new pattern was designed and printed at the same time as the coat, that’s why I’m able to offer it to you so soon.Please welcome the Eliana dress:

Eliana is the kind of dress you can make so many times and it will not look the same: depending on the fabric you choose and the variations, you’ll go from chic to casual, winter to summer, one color to contrasting hues…
new-pattern-eliana-dress-sewing-1new-pattern-eliana-dress-sewing-2I’ve been making samples with elastic waistband and I loved it so much I knew I needed to design a pattern with that detail. On the Eliana dress, you can choose to have a comfortable elastic encased waistband or add a ribbon to tie the dress around your waist.

 new-pattern-eliana-dress-sewing-3
On the very first sketches of the Eliana dress, the model was supposed to be for summer with only the sleeveless version. But soon it seems like raglan sleeve options were perfect to get a versatile pattern. And because comfort and practicality are essential, the dress has inseam pockets.
new-pattern-eliana-dress-sewing-5
Easy to make with no zipper or button, you can choose to make the front or back opening and just tie it or let it loose. Use contrast binding or self fabric as an original detail to frame the softly gathered neckline.

The flirty skirt hits just above the knee, perfect to wear either with heels or flats.
The sleeve version (View A) is made in black rayon voile with a grey japanese print (trees and birds).
The sleeveless version (View B) is made in cotton voile with an ethnic print, black bias binding and black grosgrain ribbon.
Both fabrics were purchased at The Sweet Mercerie.
new-pattern-eliana-dress-sewing-8I hope you like the Eliana dress. Which version is your favourite?

New pattern: the Quart coat!
new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-1There’s nothing I like more to sew and wear than coats! And more than once I’ve cursed my sunny (and too warm) city because winter is too mild to wear heavy outerwear.
But it was time for me to take my pencils, my ruler and my fabrics to offer you the pattern of a nice coat full of possibilities: the Quart coat!
new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-2new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-3With its high collar, pockets and long zipped sleeves, the Quart coat will protect you from the cold with style. The princess seams will highlight your figure nicely and the pleated side is the perfect girly detail.
new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-4
Quart coat pattern made in navy blue raw silk.
I was inspired by Burberry’s military style: elegant and classic outerwear that will match easily with whatever you’re wearing and that you’ll love wearing year after year.
Besides, the Quart coat can be made in wool coating for winter as well as lighter fabrics (gabardine, twill…) for a trenchcoat version perfect for mid-season.
new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-5new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-6The Quart pattern, with its advanced level, has these small details that will make the intermediate seamstress progress and will please the expert ones (think handstitched interfacing, bound buttonholes, zipped cuffs, epaulettes…).

The glossary on the last page comes back on the terms and techniques essentials to make this pattern. And because it’s starting to be an habit now, I’m already preparing a photo tutorial to follow in depth the Quart coat construction.

new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-7
Head to the shop and get the Quart coat pattern!
I can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with, your thoughts on the pattern and to show you the testers versions.
Have a great week!
new-pattern-quart-coat-sewing-8ps: I’d like to remind you that you can take advantage of your order of the printed pattern to receive the new folders for free! If you have pauline alice printed patterns still in their (thin) envelopes, add their names in the comment box when confirming your order and they’ll be sent without any additional cost.

New Pattern: the Turia Dunagrees!

new-pattern-turia-dunagrees-sewing-1

Here it is, the new pattern! I’m so happy to present the Turia dungarees!
new-pattern-turia-dunagrees-sewing-2Dungarees (or overalls as you wish!) for a grownup? Really? Well YES of course!
The Turia dungarees pattern feature front and back patch pockets, sides zippers and adjustables straps. It also comes in two length: the slightly tapered and cropped ankle length will accompany you from summer to winter made in gabardine or corduroy and layered, and the more payful short version is ideal for the warmer months (or why not wear it with tights?).

new-pattern-turia-dunagrees-sewing-3

The Turia dungarees are quite easy to make, you’ll even learn how to make beautiful and sturdy flat-fell seams. Easy to fit as well with the adjustable straps and straight leg slightly tapered at the ankle, it’s comfortable and yet stylish. Just pair them with sandals during the day or some heels for a night out.
They can be made in a great variety of fabrics: from light to medium weight wovens such as cotton, linen, gabardine, chambray and denim, corduroy, twill…

new-pattern-turia-dunagrees-sewing-4

I hope you’ll love this pattern as much as I do. It’s inspired by dungarees my mom gave me years ago, she wore them in her 20’s and I’m still wearing them… What can I say? I’m a sentimental!

New Sewing Pattern: The Camí Dress!

camí5_editado-1

I am very happy to present you my first sewing pattern: the Camí dress!
The Camí dress is a very versatile shirt dress: with its sleeve variation, it can be worn all year long… Version A has short sleeves and version B has 3/4 length sleeve with cuffs.
pattern1
I have been in love with the classic style of shirt dresses for a long time and that’s why I wanted to design one as my first pattern. Make the Camí dress in a cute printed cotton for a casual look or choose a  bright cotton sateen or silk blend for a more elegant touch: from day to night, the Camí will make an impression with its retro silhouette.

 

Camí1

The dress buttons down from the clasic shirt collar to the waist and for more comfort, there is also a side zipper. There are inseam pockets as they are so practical. The high-waist and full, gathered skirt are so typical of the 50’s fashion, you know how much I love those details 🙂
5 copia
The pattern and instructions are available as PDF files in English, Spanish and French. When the order is made, the files will be sent to your e-mail within 48 hours.
