Dear  ,

One of the most wonderful things about running PatternReview is how much I learn and get inspired everyday. Case in Point - the New to Me Pattern Co. Contest. I am just finishing up my Grainline Tiny Pocket Tank (a new company for me) and plan to try many other new patterns. Marfy anyone? 
Sewing a wardrobe for PR Weekend? I know I am :) Need something to wear to the Fashion Show after all. 
What do you think of the new Cappuccino dress? I love that it is so stylish and yet comfy. A rare combination isn't it? I am anxiously waiting to see some reviews of this pattern. So, if you've made it, please share with us. 
Our member in focus this week is Bianca. If I ever meet her, and if she is in her Alabama Chanin Dress, I don't think I could stop staring :) 
Until next time, 
Happy Sewing,

newtomeMeet the winners of the New to Me Pattern Company Contest

With the New to Me Pattern Company Contest, PR members were challenged to create a garment from a pattern company they've never sewn before. Whether from an up-and-coming independent company, or a popular commercial brand, this was a unique opportunity to broaden stashes from tried-and-tested patterns.


72 participants decided to test a new pattern company, and we hope it inspires you to try something new too!

You voted! Now let's meet the winners...

What you love most about PatternReview?


I love the community of PatternReview. If I cut and sew 2 dresses in a day, no one here thinks "that is insane". 


When I say that I bought a stash of fabric at an estate sale, reviewers here say "score!" not, "eww, dead people's stuff". 


This is a place of like-minded people who encourage and help me develop my craft. They inspire me to expand my tastes and skills. It is a place where I have developed new friendships with people who help me be better.

Sad about the discontinued Portfolio dress? Liesl brought back a revised version as a digital pattern. We love the relaxed, chic dress, don't you?
