In the Studio: Final Preparations for our New Pattern!


In the Studio banner - small

This week Matt and I have been fully immersed in the final preparations for the launch of our next pattern!  I’m sewing the final sample at the moment, our graphic designer, Sonia, has been busy altering our instructions based on the thorough and ever-so-helpful feedback provided by our test-sewers, and Matt has been revising the actual pattern pieces to suit the test-sewer’s suggestions.


We’re excited to show you what we’ve been working on!  I won’t be long now!

  1. Ohhh when will it be when will it be? Waiting with bated breath… Will these be interchangeable with the Jeds? Or would you be able to do a how-to in the future? (I’m thinking front of these, back of Jeds). Looking good anyway and can’t wait! My husband loves all the Jeds I’ve made (2 long pairs, 2 shorts), his Finlayson sweater and he’s got a peacoat on his list too. Now I’m waiting to order these together!

    • They won’t be interchangeably with the Jeds as the cut is a lot more relaxed on these and so the hip and seat shaping is very different. This new pattern includes both welt and patch pockets though! It would be simple enough to use the new pattern as a guideline for creating curved pockets on the Jeds though – I will certainly keep a tutorial like this in mind for the future! You’ve been so busy sewing for your husband! He must be thrilled 🙂

      • A tutorial would be great – I’m more of an intermediate sewer so going off-pattern is still unfamiliar for me. But I’ll wait and see what this new pattern is like before I say I want it different!

        And my husband is definitly happy – he says he’s never going shopping again!

  2. Fabulous, I’ll be watching next week!

  3. Fantastic!!!! Looks like a perfect complimentary alter ego to the Jeds. I will be watching your website, credit card in hand!!LOL

  4. This should be a good!

    I’be just finished two pairs of Jeds and was considering restarting/curving the front pockets for the next set, looks like you might have done the job already!

  5. When’s the big day????

  6. Ça ressemble beaucoup à un pantalon ; mais ce qui est sur c’est que je vais adorer !!!

  7. Whoa! From that picture, I’m liking what I’m seeing. I can’t wait for the release!
