introducing: the Breakwater collection

Megan Nielsen Breakwater collection // www.megannielsen.comThere really are no words to express my excitement today. Almost a years worth of work/passion/obsession is ready to share.

I give you: the Breakwater collection.

My heart and soul is in this collection, and i couldn’t be happier with the four patterns that star in it: Cascade, Crescent, Tania and Eucalypt. (plus some special appearances by Briar). I couldn’t possibly pick a favourite because i adore them all too much!

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the lookbook – we had the perfect team, and everyone involved was just amazing. literally. I want to work with these girls over and over – massive hugs Ashleigh, Fallon, Ali and Yvette! To all the pattern testers, i thank you with all of my heart – you are all so amazingly wonderful. And i think the biggest thank you goes to Chris, who supported me for months and months of late night working, exhaustion and stress filled freakouts – what would i do without you darling?

Over the next few days i’ll share with you more info about the individual patterns and more detail shots etc – and my awesome partner in crime Holly and I have some fantastic tutorials and variations lined up for you – but for now, please enjoy the world that is Breakwater.

Patterns are available now, and sewing kits including fabrics from the lookbook will be available in the next few days

Meg XOXO

Great job, they’re all lovely. I’ve never been a big fan of graduated hems before, but the fabric you used for the cascade has made me change my mind. It looks lovely for summer.

Megan, I LOVE THEM!!! I love the prints you chose, and everything is so very you! Can’t wait to see the variations you come up with! My favorite is the culottes, especially the blue printed pair.

Blessings,

Brigid

Congratulations, Meg! I was just thinking about you the other day, so very excited to see your new collection when I opened my emails/blogroll. The lookbook is amazing and I think you’ve done a fantastic job of creating a really distinctive design aesthetic for this collection. I’m sure it will be a wonderful success! Now go take a well-deserved break :) xxx

I surprised myself by really liking the culottes. Would they blow up in a breeze the way a skirt would?

I love this collection! Such beautiful patterns and the styling is inspiring! You put so much love and time into your designs down to the tiniest detail. Where did the shorts come from that she wears with the Crescent Blouse?
