Introducing New Designer Sew House Seven |

Today is a good day. It's Friday, of course, and a restful, restorative weekend awaits me.  Also, there's just two days until Selfish Sewing Week.  And we could not be more excited for seven straight days of sewing just for ourselves. But more importantly, today I get to introduce you to one of our newest designers. Welcome, Sew House Seven!

Sew House Seven is a sewing pattern line from of my old stomping grounds, Portland, Oregon. Each of their thoughtfully designed patterns is named after a landmark in that lovely hipster city. It makes me smile every time I hear the pattern names.

Peggy, the designer at Sew House Seven, has a knack for modern silhouettes in easy to wear pieces. Her patterns are functional and timeless. Let's see why.


Mississippi Ave Dress or top

The Mississippi Ave Dress from Sew House Seven |

The Mississippi Ave sewing pattern is a woven dress or top with a v-neckline, front panel, elastic waist and three length options. It's the perfect garment for hot summer days and features a unique front panel design. The Mississippi Ave pictured above is an above-the-knee version sewn up in a soft, opaque rayon challis.

I've worn this dress a lot since we sewed this sample up, and even with tight, boots and a leather jacket thrown over, it looks stunning. The elastic waist makes this dress comfortable with a flattering shape.


Alberta St Pencil Skirt

We are so excited to add another pencil skirt to our pattern lineup, and especially one suited for beginners! The Alberta St is a fitted pencil skirt with front patch pockets, back darts and a set in or optional invisible zipper. Four back darts (two on either side) provide a close fit to this stunning skirt.

The Alberta St pictured above was sewn up in a midweight denim with double cloth used for the waistband. The skirt is lining-free and features patch pockets, perfect for beginner sewists ready to try their hand at fitted garments.


Bridgetown Backless Dress

Bridgetown Backless Dress by Sew House Seven |

The Bridgetown was the Sew House Seven sewing pattern that originally caught my eye. The Bridgetown is a backless dress or tunic with an elastic waist, and drop shoulders with short sleeves. The Bridgetown's two panel back design creates a garment suitable as a beach coverup or as a cocktail dress for a formal dinner party.

Perfect for a beginner, this dress has no finicky closures, just an elastic waist that's comfortable for all body types! The Bridgetown pictured above was sewn in a drapey polyester mystery fabric. We love the result. Next week you'll be seeing another Bridgetown during our Selfish Sewing Week blog tour, and it's one you won't want to miss.

Want to know as soon as a new pattern is added to our shop? Make sure you're following our Indie Patterns Pinterest Board. We pin them as soon as they're available for purchase! Meet back here at 8am MST on Monday folks! The Selfish Sewing Week Challenge opens up and some great sewing inspiration will be coming your way.

Happy sewing!
