A new to us pattern line we are thrilled to now carry is Bonjour Teaspoon by Jennifer Serr. These patterns are for tween girls ages 11-14. I began sewing when I was 12 with the idea of making my own clothes, but man was it hard to find sewing patterns that were fitted to my tween shape and skill set; I sure wish these were around a decade ago! All these patters are geared towards beginners, are very easy to sew up, and also very stylish and contemporary. The pattern I decided to highlight is the Taylor Regatta knit dress. This dress takes just 2 hours from start to finish, and is a great way to ease a beginner into sewing with knits.
Not only are these patterns great for all year round, these are great projects to get you or your child in the back to school mode! You can have a great weekend or evening class project, and show off a stunning wardrobe all made by hand:) A great teacher in town is Figgy's Studio located in Lake Oswego. She teaches sewing to kids and teens, and is a wonderfully fun teacher with classes to match! Make sure to check out the line up of fall classes, and these great new patterns.
