Behind The Scenes / From The Workroom

workroom peeks: sample making

Megan Nielsen Studio peeks// sample making

It seems that in the midst of pregnancy, moving and general slowing down i haven’t shared any studio peeks for months!

So here’s what i’m working on right now: pattern samples for the next 2 patterns i’ll be releasing through Simplicity! I’m trying really hard to get these finished and sent off in the next few weeks – as i really don’t want to leave it too late and find that this is the pregnancy where i go into labour early. What am i saying, that’ll never happen hehehe.

So here we have the progress on some Ruched Maternity skirts in some lovely grey ponti knit. Oh ponti, i love you so. Definitely one of my favourite fabrics for sure. Once these are done and dusted and the pattern is reformatted, i’ll be moving on to the Ruched Maternity tshirt. So exciting!! I’ve loved seeing how well received the previous two patterns i’ve done for Simplicity have been, so i’m dying to get these out. I believe they’ll be available for purchase towards the end of the year.

So what are you working on at the moment?!

Ooh that’s exciting you’re working with simplicity! I’m planning to get a bit of sewing done this weekend – curtains for my baby’s nursery (all cut out & pinned ready to sew) and a lace Grainline scout tee for myself.

Haha in fact I’m working on my second Briar t-shirt at the moment (+like a 100 other projects at the same time, as always!) I’ll be sharing some photos soon I hope :)
