Our Reef camisole & shorts set is close to our hearts as our favourite matching pyjama set. How many matching PJ’s are too many? Another great thing about Reef is that the camisole & shorts are absolutely wonderful as casual items on their own! We’ve been super excited to put together this inspiration post to show you some other incredible ways you can hack your Reef camisole or shorts, or simply ways to style your set into a fabulous outfit! Let’s take a look at some inspiration & ideas for Reef!
We asked some wonderful makers in the sewing community to come on board to sew their own take on the Reef pattern, and we are so excited to share their makes with you! We love this part of a pattern release as it gives us a chance to share with you all how you could use the Reef and Reef Curve patterns!
We’ve been absolutely blown away (not surprisingly of course, because these makers rock!) by the makes we’ve seen! These Reef sets are seriously the cutest, lets take a look!
Guess what everyone, it’s time for our favourite part of every pattern release, our Reef Curve Tester Round Up!! As we were developing the extended sizing for our Reef Camisole & Shorts set we couldn’t wait to send it out to test! Of course, when Reef was released originally we had some wonderful testers help us to test the pattern (you can see that tester round up here), but as always we wanted to make sure our Curve makers found the fit of the pattern just right!
After we finished our tester round there were some important changes to the fit that we decided to make based on the feedback we received. You might notice some fit differences between the tester makes below and the final pattern, but rest assured any changes have made the pattern even better!
Some of our testers have been kind enough to allow us to share their makes with you, so let’s take a look at some of their beautiful PJs!
We’ve been working on this update for over a year and are so thrilled to let you know our Reef Camisole & Shorts Set is now available in extended sizes in our 0-20 and Curve 14-30 ranges! This pattern is a quiet achiever, a set perfect for loungewear, or casual wear (depending on how you style it) and we have been super excited to release it to show you the incredible images and just how gorgeous it can look!
The camisole features bias cut, v neckline and crossover yoke in the back. The shorts have two variations, featuring an elastic waist, pockets, curved or straight hemline and two rises.
I’m going to go through what specifically has been updated and detail each of the variations, and tell you a little bit about them and how you can use them. [Read more…]
The Veronika skirt has been part of our Newsletter Subscriber Freebies since 2015, available when you sign up for our Megan Nielsen Patterns newsletter. It’s one of our quiet achievers, a super simple but classy pattern that is a wonderful beginner sew but also a quick make for anyone more experienced. Easy to dress up or down, we’ve had SO much fun planning the re-release of this pattern in our extended sizing! There are also a few super easy ways to mix it up…take a look at some of our inspirational ideas!
