I’m very excited to start the new year with a new pattern! Say "Hello" to the Coffeehouse Pant! It’s an easy to wear and even easier to sew ankle length pant with front notch pockets and an elastic waist. It's available today and is on a NEW RELEASE SALE for 20% off here on the website and at Upcraft Club until January 14th!
Let me introduce you...
The Coffeehouse Pant sews up nicely in light to medium weight fabrics ideally with some drape. Linen, challis, crepe and chambray would all be good choices. Look at the darling pants Kyla from LifebyKy made out of a soft suiting.
Grab a copy at 20% off at Upcraft Club and on the BDP website through January 11th! Don't forget to tag all your makes #Coffeehousepant and #Bluedotpatterns. Enjoy!
There's a lot that goes into the development of a pattern; design, pattern making, testing, writing, testing some more, refining and the list goes on. But the best part of the development of a pattern is when it goes out to the testers and I get to what people make.
I'm amazed at how gifted, skilled and generous my pattern testers are! They made some really fun Ally skirts, gave awesome feedback and were all around supportive during the entire process. Their suggestions have been invaluable. I couldn't have done it without them!
Here are some of the makes from these lovely testers:
Michelle from ThatBlackChic added pockets and flaps for a young and funky Ally. So much fun!
Melissa from Mahlicadesigns made a dark denim skirt with snaps. A great wardrobe builder, right?
Karen made a wool version (so classic!) with pockets and then a higher waisted denim version for her lovely daughter
Lindsay of Inside The Hem made a corduroy skirt. When Lindsay sent her photos I had to giggle because I had just finished a brown cord version myself
Caroline made a fun black Ally that can be worn all year with a light t-shirt in the summer and a chunky sweater and boots in the winter. I love it!
I'm the luckiest designer ever! Thank you pattern testers....you're the best!
