This week, a new pattern company was added to The Splendid Stitch: Liesl + Co.! Currently they have four patterns, which are all beautifully designed, relaxed styles. You can see them all here. This week's 'Outfit of the Week' features their Maritime top: a lovely knit top. It has a bateau neckline, side vents and a flattering fit. There are two sleeve length options: 3/4 length and short. This is an easy-to-sew pattern and the two existing reviews on PatternReview.com give it very positive reviews!
Burda's 6769 is a body-hugging denim skirt. It has a yoke, pockets, centre front and centre back seams, a shaped waistband, and lots of topstitching! There is an interesting design feature - side seams that diagonally slope towards the front. Finally, there are two lengths to choose from. Burda has rated this an an 'average' pattern (it's middle of 3 difficulty levels). Unfortunately, there are currently no reviews of this pattern on PatternReview.com.
Drawing on the inspiration images, I've recommended a few of our denims for the skirt. For the top, I've recommended some of our jersey knits. To see the recommended fabrics, scroll down to the bottom of this page. To see our wider range of jerseys - including many prints - click here.
This outfit was inspired by several outfits featured recently in popular fashion blogs and ready-to-wear collections. To see more inspiration images, have a look at our 'Skirts' board on Pinterest.
