I am so excited to let you know that the Acton pattern is finally here!
For those of you who have been following along with me for a while, you will know that this lady has been in the works for a long time! But I must say that after all the hours spent on it, I couldn't be happier. She is a real beauty and I am ecstatic to be sharing her with you today.
The pattern is available in 10 sizes, from bust 76cm (30in) - 131cm (51.5in).
View A features a fitted bodice with a low back and thin shoulder straps. The skirt is A-line, and includes (optional) in-seam pockets in the side seams.
View B features a fitted bodice with racer-back and thin shoulder straps. The skirt is a wrap that can be tied in a number of ways to achieve different silhouettes.
By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: achieving a great fit, working with tricky fabrics, sewing princess seams, inserting an invisible zip and lining a garment.
I also chose to do things a little differently this time, and decided to illustrate the instructions (after I learned that the general consensus is for illustrations instead of photos).
