Saler jacket, Reina shirt and Safor skirt patterns testers

I thought I would make a break from showing you the patterns in details and show you the patterns testers versions of the Reina shirt, Safor skirt and Saler jacket (the details of the Saler jacket pattern are coming tomorrow).
Most of you like to see as many versions of a pattern before committing to buying it, I totally relate as I do the same. It’s always nice to see different versions of the same pattern as fabrics, colours and styling are very personal choices and maybe the samples I made don’t speak to you as much as one of the testers versions.

It’s always a great pleasure for me to see the garments the testers made. Most of the time, when I send them the pattern to test, they only have the technical drawing or the pattern illustration to guide them (my muslins are made in pretty awful fabrics and the samples for the pictures are not ready as there’s a big chance the pattern is going to be changed after the testers’ feedback). I like to see the fabrics they chose, the vision they have of the pattern before being influenced by others pictures. Their trust is something that really enlights me, I am so thankful for they help and their amazing work as testers. So let’s see what beautiful garments they have made:

REINA SHIRT

Let’s begin with the Reina shirt pattern. There’s been so minor changes on the pattern since the testers gave me their feedback and the most important is that the plunging neckline has been raised about an inch or so as it was…too plunging!

SAFOR SKIRT

This is the pattern that has most changed since testing. The general feedback was that the asymetrical panels were too deep and that the skirt could be a little bit more fitted around the hips. As you might have seen for the sample pictures, I addressed the issues and the asymetry is now less pronounced.

SALER JACKET

Apart from lowering the pockets, this pattern hasn’t changed. As you can see, eventhough it’s a very classic design, fabric choice is going to set it apart.

I hope the testers’ versions have inspired you. I’m looking forward to see your own Reina, Safor and Saler versions!

Safor skirt pattern 2 versions

Today, let’s talk about the Safor skirt.

Ever since making the Rosari skirt pattern, I’ve wanted to add another skirt pattern to the collection. And because I couldn’t decide between a short and casual and a knee-length one for more formal occasion, I chose to make them both.
The Safor skirt is a faux-wrap skirt with a hip yoke that follows nicely the body’s curves. The great thing about the faux-wrap is that you can walk easily without the inconvenience of your skirt opening too high. The Safor skirt is confortable and easy to wear.
View A offers inseam pockets hidden between the yoke and the skirt and is quite short (there are lengthen/shorten lines on the pattern if you want to give a little more length to your skirt). View B is knee-length and has a contrasting panel along the hem. This is a great way to play with colors or fabrics contrasts.
Both views have the same asymetrical fold-over front and close with an inviible zipper and a button at the back.

I’ve used Les trouvailles d’Amandine ‘s denim for both versions: in “liane” shade for view A and “etendard” for view B (as it’s reversible, I’ve used the wrong side for contrast). You could also use any medium weight fabric with a little bit of body: denim, linen, gabardine, leather or suede for example.

Let me know if you have any question about the patterns…

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.
