Trend Patterns!

Well this is a new one for us, Trend Patterns! 

When carrying out our daily search for new patterns, we came across Trend Patterns, first impression of them...wow! The website, modern and fresh, this style carried across into their patterns! We love the modern take they have had to pattern making, incorporating the latest catwalk trends, celebrity trends and red carpet looks. 

These patterns take modern dressmaking to the next level. 

Oversized sleeve top

The oversized sleeve top pattern is a great top for every day wear, its simplistic designs yet couture feel makes this garment effortlessly stylish. Make it in lightweight cotton and pair it with some skinny jeans, statement necklace or choker and some killer heels and take it from day time to evening! ...or if your feeling really daring make it in a sheer fabric! 

Pattern rating; Easy (if made in cotton) - Sheer fabric need a little more knowledge.

Asymmetric hem dress

The lovely Asymmetric dress, made for AW16, but we think it is the perfect dress to take you into spring 2017. The shape of the dress is very boutique and captures a classy essence. This would be perfect for those spring evenings relaxing with a glass of wine. Make in a darker fabric for everyday wear, or in floral to take you into spring.

The cape

The cape is your secret weapon to adding a chic layer to your outfit. This great pattern has four different variations, (you'll be wanting to make it in all four) There is a front zip version, mid back zip, and two different lengths to chose from. So you will be able to make it exactly how you want it.

The Bomber

The bomber, a lot more casual than the rest of Trend Patterns, patterns but still one you definitely need to make. Perfect for those more casual days, the front zip and pocket detail make this your perfect go to jacket for every day wear. Make an optional shoulder patch pocket to add even more detail. Make in winter warm fabrics to keep you cosy or thinner fabrics to take you into the spring.
