Introducing the Foxglove by Selvage Designs
Today is the day, folks. We can finally unveil Indiesew's exciting collaboration with Lauren Dahl from Selvage Designs. Today is the day you can purchase, and if you’re feeling especially motivated, sew up the best fitting racerback tank I’ve sewn to date. Lucky you guys.
If you’re new to Indiesew or the sewing world, let us give you some background. Lauren Dahl is the mastermind behind Pattern Workshop, where she’s helping indie designers all over the globe learn how to digitize their sewing patterns. In just a few months, Pattern Workshop has garnered rave reviews and has helped improve the quality of indie PDF patterns on the market.
Because Lauren is the expert on digitizing patterns, it was only natural that she develop her own line of women’s clothing patterns. And we are so thankful she did. Lauren’s line, called Selvage Designs, will be a full line of women’s clothing with modern silhouettes and an emphasis on functional design features. The Foxglove is her first piece in the women’s line and today the pattern can be yours!
But first you probably want to know the details. These are the features that make this pattern one of the best we’ve seen yet.
Knit or Woven Option: The Foxglove can be sewn up in either a knit or woven and Lauren includes thorough instructions for each version. She explains how an individual should choose a size depending on their fabric type and offers different seam finishes for each. With options like that, $12 is a steal for a pattern that you’ll likely sew up more than any other pattern you own.
Racerback Design: The Foxglove features a racerback design that make this a tank that you can dress up or down. A knit version is a perfect yoga top, or simply paired with leggings for a casual day around the house. The woven version can be worn with skinny jeans for a day of errands or a night on the town.
Hi-Lo Hem: A bit cropped in the front with seat coverage in the back, the Foxglove’s hi-lo hem makes me a happy camper. Lauren includes instructions on lengthening the entire tank top for those long-torsoed women, or lengthening just the front of Foxglove for those women with fuller chests.
Seam options: A fancy seam finish goes a long way, and the Foxglove certainly isn’t lacking options for you to choose from. Lauren has included clean finished seams (woven version) to make your top’s seams stand out from traditional ready-to-wear fashion. The options to serge, french seam or cover stitch (knit version) are also available. Instructions for each option are outlined in detail.
