I love the concept of the Perfect Pattern Parcel. It’s a semi-regular pattern bundle that supports indie PDF pattern designers AND supports a children’s charity. There’s a twist too… A good one, not a stupid pointless one like a reality TV show. You get to name your price! You can choose what you think the bundle is worth and that’s what you pay. So what’s in this first parcel, you ask?
Parcel #1 has these 5 patterns. A great mix of patterns for all occasions. I’m really looking forward to making all of them up.
There have been quite a few versions made up on the tour and a lot have featured some colour blocking. I’ve loved the result, so decided to play with using a different fabric for the front of my top.
The Summer Concert Tee was a nice quick sew, though I did need to unpick the neckband and re-do it. I think I over stretched it a bit because it was all wavy and ugly. To be on the safe side, I cut the new neckband 2″ longer. I added 3″ to the front of the top too. I’m quite happy for my belly to never see the light of day. I think the fabric I used might be a little too heavy-weight, because it doesn’t hang as nicely as others I’ve seen. It could also be because I used a stretch knit. Either way, I would like to try this out again with another fabric.
