Today’s the day! I’m excited to announce that my first women’s pattern is being released through the Sew What Club. This unique club is a monthly PDF pattern subscription; you sign up to receive either women’s or kids’ patterns and then get 1-2 brand spanking new designs every month.
Introducing…the Tripoli Trousers!
The Sew What Club is the brainchild of Kelly (from Sewing in No Man’s Land) and I’m so thankful she let me be one of her featured designers. Not only is Kelly beautiful and ridiculously talented, she’s also one of the nicest people I’ve ever (virtually) met. Check out all the club’s current patterns here.
Good news, ladies: flare leg pants are back! Consistent with this whole ’70’s fashion revival thing we’re seeing, wide hems are all over the place and I couldn’t be happier. After years of hating my skinny jeans, my poor tortured husband has a reason to look at my bottom half again.
The Tripolis are hip hugging and curve-flattering, with a higher rise (a boon to those of us with less than washboard abs) and adorable button closure. This sailor-style pant has been on my mind for a long time and I’m so happy to finally be able to share this style with all of you!
Hop on over to the Sew What Club to check them out and if you’re not already a member, you can sign up or cancel anytime Who couldn’t use new sewing patterns for less than 8 bucks a month?! #score
I’m excited to see everyone’s versions of this great silhouette!
