New Women's Pattern Release! Camas Blouse
Thread Theory is two years old today! To celebrate our second birthday we're launching a pattern for women! With this pattern, we want to thank all the women who have enthusiastically supported our sewing pattern company over the last two years (our customer base is surprisingly 95% female!). We couldn't have asked for a more helpful, appreciative, patient, and supportive group of customers. Right from the very start when we were just planning our pattern designs and learning how to blog we've always felt that you really have our backs! During the last two years we've really noticed a theme among women choosing to sew menswear - most of you seem to really be proud and thrilled with your menswear projects but, at the same time, view them as a bit of a sacrifice because they minimize the time you have to sew for yourself. The Camas Top is a thank you for taking this time to sew menswear! So thanks - and the pattern is 15% until Wednesday! Some of you might remember from blog posts over a year ago that the Camas Blouse is one of the designs I came up with for the clothing line that I created in design school. I wanted to create a blouse that is simultaneously elegant and super comfortable. It features shoulder and back yokes and gathers that allow the main blouse to float over the body. It can be sewn in a large variety of knits or stretch fabrics. The shirt will look really different depending on the weight and drape of your fabric choice. The blouse includes slim sleeves and a subtly curved hem that can be tucked in or worn loose over skinny jeans. The narrow placket can be sewn with functional buttons (the instructions include tips for adding buttonholes to knits), snaps or as a false placket with decorative buttons to create a slip-on blouse. Well, thank you so much for giving us a wonderful first two years! We're really excited to see your versions of the Camas Blouse! Happy sewing!
