With both kids happily ensconced in school and myself caught up on all the orders I received through email (rainbow dresses upon rainbow dresses upon rainbow dresses), the shop is now reopen for everything. A couple of fabrics and the clothes they made have been sadly retired, but might re-appear if my stockists replenish.
I'm also making a (long-overdue) effort to streamline my offerings, so appliqued items like organic t-shirts and rompers are a bargain-licious 50% off! Sizes are limited, so go forth and snatch!
In pattern news, three of my coat patterns have been unavailable for some time after I ran out of prints and I flailed and angsted about whether to re-order paper prints or switch to pdfs. However, the cacophany of 'Why u no have coats?!' has forced me into a decision and I am switching over to pdfs. As we speak. Ish. If it works out using a combination of 16 different pdf programmes, I'll be rolling all of my patterns into a pdf option.
In other coat news, anyone remember the erstwhile military coats? The main difference between these coats and my others are the addition of pockets and a zipper instead of buttons, but I've also graded through 7Y/8Y for both the boys and girls version. If there's interest, I will pick up where I left off (which typically for me is about at the 95% complete mark) and try to get this released for the autumn.
And finally, the skater dress pattern. Again, I was perilously close to releasing this before I went on holiday as a sleeveless skater dress pattern but some magical time warp occurred and it's almost September and the option for adding sleeves is a necessity. 'But wait, Amanda...', I hear you say, 'You also make sleevey skater dresses!' I do, indeed, but they are raglan sleeves and not compatible with the sleeveless bodice. We all know how much I like drafting sleeves. But drafted they will be, and hopefully this pattern will be an autumn release as well.
Did I mention I'm having a huge clearance sale?
