Look ahead to spring
It’s the first day of winter… so let’s start thinking about spring!
Simplicity recently released their 2012 Early Spring pattern collection. Included are our very own Threads and SewStylish patterns as well as other great patterns you’re sure to love.
Threads pattern 1919 is four-piece ensemble with various options. The princess seam jacket has a peplum extending from the waist to the high hip and has two sleeve length options and two collar/lapel variations. The slim-fit, straight-leg pants are cropped or full length. The straight skirt has one front panel with two waist darts and three panels in the back with a flounce in the center panel at the hem. Mix and match these pieces for multiple professional and chic outfits.
