This is it! The last step of the Veronika sewalong for the woven views. We will finish with the hem!
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!
As a little holiday gift for everyone this year, we’re super excited to announce that our Veronika skirt is now available in extended sizes in our 0-20 and Curve 14-30 ranges! This pattern is such a wonderfully simple sew. It’s a great pattern for beginner sewers to test out and practice their skills, but also makes the sweetest skirts for even the most confident of makers.
The updated Veronika pattern is FREE to our newsletter subscribers so be sure to subscribe to get your free skirt pattern.
Ah, pregnancy, isn’t it wonderful? Slightly less wonderful is how tough it can be finding clothes that fit, are stylish, AND comfortable. Not to mention the unicorn of maternity dressing…the outfit you can also wear after the bub has arrived! That’s why we’re super thankful for versatile patterns that can grow and adapt with you as you need them – like our pattern of the month Floreat!
Floreat’s been a favourite of ours for a while now, but it first came to our attention as a great maternity pattern when one of our own team members made and wore Floreat during her own pregnancy (lightbulb moment!). The beauty of using Floreat as a maternity pattern is in its flexibility: Floreat can be made in woven or knit fabrics – so the all-important ‘stretch’ is on the table! Who says comfortable maternity clothes have to be boring?
Let’s take a look at the pattern!
Do you ever fall in love with a pattern and suddenly start seeing fabric for future versions everywhere you look? That’s currently me with Rowan. Every stretch fabric I see is just another potential Rowan, waiting to happen. Since making my first Rowan tee at the very start of this year, the situation has snow-balled. My current count is sitting at around 11 completed tees, with 2 half made and fabric bookmarked for around 3 more – making Rowan, without a doubt, my most repeated make ever. I just can’t stop & frankly I don’t want to.
