Our current extended size range is now at the printers, you can see which patterns these are here. The whole printing process, including getting the envelopes printed and everything packed takes about 6 weeks. Our Sunday dressing gown (pictured above) arrived last week and is now available.
We have actually now released the Mary White in the new size range, but because of the UK being in lockdown we’ve been unable to do our photoshoot – but it’s up and available to buy! This is also at the printers with the above 9.
We have made some new beautiful samples for all the above patterns to showcase the designs on a size UK 26. Again these will be added once we can do the photoshoot! But we are really happy with the samples and can’t wait to have a greater variety of shots on those pages.
There are 3 brand new patterns in development, a coat, shirt and skirt. These will all be available in sizes UK 6 – 28. We are aiming for a release date of beginning of April for these. FYI all patterns will be available in paper and pdf.
The back catalogue:
Our new pattern cutter is working through our back catalogue of designs in batches. We are hoping to complete all batches by the end of the year. It’s very hard to give release dates as Covid is continuing to throw a spanner in the works with suppliers and trying to maintain a full workforce! But we’d like to think batch one would be released by April.
Batch one – Florence, Edie, Eve, Harlene
Batch two – Ellie & Hattie, TN31 Parka, Ottoline, Landgate
Batch three – Heroine, Whittaker
At the beginning of the year we decided which paper patterns wouldn’t be re printed and would stay as PDF only. These are Francine, Strand, Clementine, and Rugby (actually already PDF only). So these patterns will not be brought out in the extended size range.
A note on sizing:
After listening to feedback we will now be doing all extended sizes in UK 18 – 28, so there is an overlap. So for example Mary White which we have just released is UK 18 – 28. However we won’t be going back to the ‘original 9’ these will stay at UK 20 – 28.
Thank you for your patience and we really hope you love our 3 new patterns as much as we do!
