Welcome to the Stephanie Sewalong: Inspiration + a fabric discount!

Delphine (Sewing Tidbits)

To celebrate the re-release of the Stephanie Skirt with an improved size range and illustrated instructions, I am hosting Just Patterns’ very first sew-along! I hope that it can help beginner sewists to feel more confident and encourage more experienced makers to try new techniques. Don’t forget to grab your pattern in the shop and let’s start look at some inspiration to help you choose your fabric. I’m very happy to be collaborating with my friends Dibs, who just launched her online fabric store Selvedge and Bolts, and she is generously offering 20% a selection of fabric that would be amazing to sew Stephanie, check out the code at the bottom of this post!

Another take on Just Patterns Stephanie Skirt

Delphine (Sewing Tidbits)

I'm slowly climbing out of the overwhelmed single working mom hole although I have to acknowledge that I may fall right back into it at any time. Life has a thing for intently proving me wrong every time I start feeling like things are under control. But before that happens, I'm trying to get as much sewing and photographing done! The skirt I am showing you today has been on my mind since November.

A move, exciting news and what to expect around here in 2018...

Sewing Tidbits

The last quarter of the year just seem to have been on fast-forward. Life has been busy at Tidbits HQ!  The main reason behind my silence is that I traveled to France for holidays (Yes, I saw the Dior exhibit and yes, it is absolutely amazing!!). Upon coming back to New York, I learned that I would be moving back to Haiti (on Thanksgiving weekend...) less than 2 months later. Things were hectic… I had to break my lease, sell all my furniture in New York, organize the shipment of the rest of my belongings aka the sewing room ;-), find a place to live in Haiti and start my new job!

Updated pleated skirt, meet the Stephanie Skirt!

Sewing Tidbits

Dear readers,

We are improving the presentation of our sewing patterns. We want them to be easier to remember and identify so they now have names! The latest one to be updated is our popular pleated skirt pattern, now called the Stephanie Skirt.

Just Patterns - Stephanie Skirt Cover

We took the opportunity to do some redesign of the information package, the cover is has changed a little but more importantly we now include more information on the style and fabric recommendations. The pattern itself is still exactly the same!

Just Patterns - Stephanie Skirt Information Pack

We clarified certain areas and added a PDF layout for the print at home options to make is easier to tape together.

Don't forget to check the Resource Page, where we gather tutorials to help you complete your skirt.

Little by little we will be updating the packages for our 3 other patterns and we have some exciting new patterns lined up for fall. We will be back very soon to show you more! All the changes were based on the feedback we received from our customers so let us know what you think, we are listening and striving to improve your experience!

Happy sewing!
