This season, we designed our new collection as a wardrobe-builder: three pieces you can mix and match with the rest of your closet for maximum portability!
Hoya is a mock-wrap blouse with short or 3/4 sleeves, which looks as good worn over jeans than tucked into a high-waisted skirt or pair of shorts. It can look casual or fancy depending of your fabric choice, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy the interesting way it’s constructed!
Goji is a super versatile pattern: you can use it to make flared shorts or a paneled skirt! Its elasticated waistband is super comfortable for the warmer months, and features a drawstring and an optional paperbag version.
Finally, Luzerne is the masterpiece of this collection. If you’re aching for a challenge, it’s the pattern you need, with its two-piece sleeves, bound buttonholes, and pretty seam finishes. Its fitted shape will look amazing over your dresses and skirts, and will also work with more modern outfits 😉
No, you’re not dreaming: Deer&Doe is now offering PDF patterns! After several years, we had to face the facts: for sewists who live far away, purchasing our printed patterns can be a struggle (unreliable postal services, shipping delays…). So we decided to broaden our product selection by offering PDF patterns in addition to our existing printed format 🙂 .
We analyzed carefully all your answers to the survey we launched last year, and we’re now very happy to introduce PDF versions of our three new patterns Hoya, Goji, and Luzerne! We also updated our free Plantain tee, and will be adding our existing patterns as we go along.
We’ll tell you more about all the features of our PDF patterns in a dedicated blog post tomorrow 😉
And this digital format lets us introduce another surprise…
We used to be constrained by our printed patterns’ format, but with this new medium we are able to improve our size range! We have extended our size chart up to a size 52, which is the largest size we can get from grading up our base block. We’re excited to make our patterns accessible to sewists who used to be right outside of our previous size range (but remember, only PDF patterns are available in size 48 to 52!).
For the occasion, we asked the lovely Bruume to model the new collection in size 48/50! Thanks to her for brightening up the photoshoot with her gorgeous smile and amazing attitude 🙂
To celebrate this release, we decided to offer a spring-summer pattern bundle in limited edition! This bundle contains the three patterns in printed format and is available for 38.50€ tax incl. (instead of 42€) for the first 300 orders 😉
