Brueram top and dresses release party

There was a competition in the Betties Basket Facebook group a while back. Contestants got to send in their design idea and the designers that participated got to choose the design they wanted to make into a pattern. I choose Heathers dress idea. She made a drawing for a dress with crossed straps and a high/low wrapped skirt. The dress was made with woven fabrics.

After 2 muslins and a few changes I made the final version. A dress with shirred or elastic back (no zippers or buttons). Straps that meet in the back and are cut in one piece, so no shoulder seams. The high/low wrapped skirt option, top option and maxi dress option. And my favorite, a seamless bodice.

Gemini skirt bundle release SALE

We are releasing a new pattern today.

Please meet the Gemini Skirt Bundle.

Gemini is Latin for Twins. The pattern is inspired by twins. Actually it is inspired by my twin sister and I. It is amazing how two people can come from te same genes, be born on the same day and still can be so different. But this pattern is not only for twins. There are a lot of sisters who have very different styles. Even one girl can have very different styles.

This pattern has combined sizes starting at size NB/56 up to 11/12-146/152. In this pattern you will find two skirt patterns. One is a fitted short skirt with a big kangaroo pocket in front. The side seams are brought to the front (of centered). The waistband in this patterns is for both skirts. It is an elastic free waistband.
