Start planning your dream getaway with this sunny new Paradise Found Collection. You’ll want to hit the beach in these floaty dresses and bold, stylish outfits. Even if you’re only travelling as far as the back patio, these patterns will put you in a summer mood!
The dressmaking patterns in the Paradise Found collection are certainly not your average garments! Team up the Linen Blazer and Pleated Linen Pants for a smart and stylish summer suit, or cause a stir with the Pleated Jumpsuit made in bright aztec fabrics! If you prefer a slightly more muted style, the High-Waisted Mini Skirt is a must-have for your holiday wardrobe, and the Long Summer Coat is perfect for those cooler evenings.
The Editor’s Pick from this collection is the Island Placket Dress pattern. This breezy summer dress has plenty of detail, and is sure to make you stand out from the crowd at the beach. Pintucks at the front and back, a buttoned placket, and a long waist tie make this halter dress absolutely stunning – and your choice of fabric will really give it a unique look. You could use a solid fabric for a strong pop of colour, or you could even make it in white for a casual wedding dress!
