After several weeks of suspense, the NEW BLACK collection by Named Clothing releases (finally, finally) ;))) I think you have understood I am radically, totally fan, addict : nearly a dozen pieces made and obtained from the last TICKET collection. To see my favorite pieces : INARI dress, Alexandria pants not to mention Delphi dress.
Again, this Finnish brand combines everything I love: Style, “trendy”, always the detail that makes the difference besides the wide possibilities of variations fabrics and simplicity of making. Indeed, this last point is important many are hampered by the English (the owners are only available in English or Finnish), if this can reassure you I am far fluent English and tutorials diagrams are “saving” .
Back to the NEW BLACK collection (having caught my breath;)), I loved several models: Olivia, Quinn and especially my FAVORITE : LEXI dress or top !!!! To inaugurate this event, my impatience led me to realize immediately (the same day of the release;)) by the LEXI top the dress version will come very soon.
Level: Beginner – Timing : 1:30 – Cost : €€
Lexi is my “favorite” pattern of the New Black collection such as Inari dress / top of the previous collection. First, the ingenuity of the 2 in 1 j’adooooore !!! Indeed, I appreciate being able to have multiple options on the same pattern. So it is in déclinable “crop top”, this year still tend to associate with pants or skirt and high waist dress also. Furthermore, the absolute detail: the flared sleeves !!!!
Note that you can also opt for more classic 3/4 sleeves. I must say that after having tasted the “tulip” sleeves such as Flutter dress by Papercut patterns (review my latest version), I am totally addicted because their scope delivers a very chic style !!!
For this first version, I chose the quilted jersey “mats” by The Sweet Mercerie, bought in last May. A real favorite for this sweet, soft and original jersey and I patiently waiting for the right pattern. This is done because the mats are magnified and go perfectly with this cut and value well incredibly sleeves. For this first, I stayed on the length “crop top” certainly the next version will be longer;)))
No difficulty is ideal pattern for novice ;)))
Finally, congratulations to Named and team, especially Laura;)))
