I am flipping out with excitement to finally be able to reveal to you lovely people my new garment pattern! It has been in the pipeline on and off for over two years, and she's finally ready for you to see. The Dolores batwing pattern be on sale in downloadable PDF form on 3rd October. But in the meantime, let me show you some pics and tell you a bit more...
This is a pattern designed for light to medium weight knit fabrics, and looks and feels particularly good in those with a drapey, slinky quality. It's a super-simple PDF pattern that prints off in just 11 pages and consists of four patterns pieces. You'll only need to use three of those pattern pieces per style variation.
Speaking of style variations, there are two sleeve options and three length options, giving you a combination of six different looks in total (and that's before you put your own spin on things, should you wish to!). These photos here show three of the style variations you could make, check out the line illustrations to see all six.
Multi-sized for sizes 8 - 16, this pattern is suitable for knit beginners and more experienced types alike. Not only is it simple in design and construction, but the instructions include lots of tips for choosing, prepping, cutting and sewing knit fabrics, whether you own an overlocker or just a regular sewing machine. The Dolores batwing pattern will be on sale from 3rd October, but of course I'll be reminding you!

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank my awesome pattern and instruction testers Claire, Jane, Jenna, Karen, Kathryn, Laura, Marie and Winnie. They have all been so generous with their time and assistance, and I literally couldn't have got this into the real world without them.
