Basics Collection – information schedule

By Susan | Comments: 4 | July 22, 2014


Thank you all for the great response to the release of the Basics Collection yesterday. I’m so glad that the concept of wearable everyday Basics is so appealing to everyone.

To help you out with fabrics and planning for your new Basics there are some posts coming up that are filled with information. Here is a brief rundown of what you can expect

  • Choosing fabrics for your Racer Back singlet
  • Types of stitching
  • Ideas from the Designer Manual
  • Additional inspiration
  • Sewalong dates

Requests have already been coming in for pieces that people want as everyday basics so if you have a special request pop it into the comments and we will see what we can do for you.

    I am so excited. Hoping the basics go up to a 51 inch bust, but that is an entirely selfish wish!

      We are working on a variety of sizes and hope to introduce some before Christmas, so your selfish wish (which isn’t actually selfish at all) might come true!

    Looks great Susan! Everyone should have the basics in their pattern collection. Are you going to do a zip through or a good old basic sloppy joe?
