New Fashion Patterns & 50% Off from Seamingly Smitten

The costume making season is winding down and that means one thing: more time for selfish sewing!!! I have been missing it big time, so today I'm sharing a few new patterns that are a great for whipping up stylish women's fashions in next to no time, so we can sew for ourselves a bit.  I already bought one of these and am sharing my results with it below.  And I've got a code for saving 50% off ALL pattern purchases at:
Looking for a top pattern that is ultra flattering and beyond easy to make?  Check out the new Dolman Sweater pattern.  It's asymmetrical, oversized collar gives it a stylish shape that looks great on any body type.  It's an item that can easily be worn with leggings, jeans or skirts, so it's a good go-to wardrobe addition. I L-O-V-E it!!

It's also a great way to sew up medium or heavy weight knits, pontes or sweater knits that are extra comfy.  Added bonus - there's just one pattern piece to cut out (the sleeves are built in), so this is a super quick sew!!

I couldn't resist this pattern - it seemed ideal.  Uses lots of fabrics, easy to make and looks shop made.  Usually loose fit tops look ultra baggy and shapeless on me, but this has a great fit in all the right places.  I bought & made myself one in the very same day.  I used some nubby sweatshirt fleece I had in my stash.  This looks way nicer than the boring sweatpants I'd planned to make with this fabric:  

I totally love how put-together it looks (yet it's crazy comfortable) as well as how unbelievably quick it was to make.  I made the small and only needed 1.5yds of fabric.  Despite me being a slow sewer, it only took me 90 minutes from print to finish.  I'm totally making more of these!!

And there's the Pleated Swing Dress pattern.  It features a pleated neckline, modest coverage racer back and simple straps for a flowy silhouette.  Perfect on its own in warm weather or paired up with a jacket, leggings and boots for cooler climates.  

Since you can use either drapey wovens like voile or knits like matte jersey, cotton lycra, jersey silk, peach skin or stretch lace, there are lots of fabric options.
