Sewlosophy Serendipity pants and shirt

Months ago I came across a call for pattern testers over at The Mother Huddle. Destri was in the final stages of designing and launching a new pattern company – Sewlosophy Pattern Co. The Serendipty range includes pants, a top, a swing coat and beret. I signed up, never dreaming that I might actually get chosen – but I did!

As part of the pattern testing process, I received a free copy of the patterns.

I made a size two in both the pants and the top with full-length sleeves. I must say they were very easy to sew and came together beautifully.

set - top and pantsI was a little skeptical when I noticed the gathers on the trousers and cute button detail on the top, but I needn’t have worried.

The pants are sewn in denim, and the shirt in cotton. The denim is such a nice weight for autumn – warm and not too casual.

The trouser pattern has lots of neat details – a sweet yoke at the front and flat-felled seam at the back. The elastic is entirely concealed with a clever construction technique which makes the finished product appear professional. The blouse has soft gathers across the chest and buttons on the shoulder.

I was really taken by the online video tutorials which accompany the Sewlosphy patterns. I’d not seen such a thing before. I don’t think of myself as a particularly visual learner, but there was something extra helpful about seeing the garments being sewn – and being able to sew along with the video.

The written component of the patterns was great too – lots of clear photos and explicit instructions. The construction of both pants and top is quite simple but very effective.

Just as soon as I’ve got myself organised. Which will happen one day. At least the patterns run from size 2 to 12 – I’ve got plenty of time.

I know I’m singing the praises of this range – but you can be sure I wouldn’t be if I didn’t think they were great.

Roar!

    Simple and classy – not usually said about about toddler size clothes! They look great. Is there any nappy allowance in the size 2?
