Sewing Patterns & Courses

Thanks Love Notions for classic, relevant, and useful patterns for my personal wardrobe.

A big yes to getting the class to walk you through the process! I also agree make a test pair first, because I had to do a lot of tweaks for my body type, and the resources LN provides are extremely helpful. Have fun and enjoy the process!

So pleased I came across Love Notions. Now, using Love Notions, everything I make fits.

My first Aria. I purchased the class to go along with it. It was so helpful. I’m very pleased with the results. A button down that fits, who would have thought!?

I’m not a beginner, but I seem to learn something from every course. And that “ something” might be the thing that elevates the project to perfection for me!

A little sneak peek. It’s almost ready.

Very excited to share this one with you- it represents so much of the heart behind Love Notions. ❤️

Ask away if you have any burning questions about our new pattern! (Its origin story is completely different than any other pattern we’ve ever put together)

I have a secret sewing tool for pants & button ups.

It’s one of those things that people never put in their sewing starter kit must-have top ten lists - but I think it’s pretty important. You can see it in today’s blog and video - there’s even a DIY tutorial to make your own! You can find the links in our profile, look for the tool that rhymes with “Sailor’s Spam” 😉

And it’s a perfect complement to today’s feature pattern: The Sabrina Slims. They are a slim fit pant essential for any wardrobe. It’s that basic workhorse that everyone needs multiple days of the week. It’s not flashy or revolutionary - just really good. Take a look at the pattern reviews and you’ll see why. (It even comes with a pants fitting resource that will help you nail the fit!).

We just met a couple old sewing friends at the handmade business convention in the Chicago area. So great to see Laurie and her gorgeous #PrestoTunic.

She embroidered it with her @designsinmachineembroidery software- Presto’s inset panels are perfect for that. Love this creativity 💜

How do you prefer to sew your buttons?

I prefer to sew with machine, but a little scotch tape makes it go even faster. The Juliet Top is today’s feature pattern (and it’s a cute match with our newest upcoming skirt pattern- keep an eye out for Caprice! (There are tiers, fun hemlines, buttons and more!)

💜 want a new pattern? comment on this post 💜 picked!!!

I had THE most fun making these pattern, fabric, and notion bundles that will each be given away during next week’s 40% off sale.

Each one is totally different and meant for a specific category of sewing patterns: take a guess at each bundles’ title and which patterns coordinate with it!

Here’s a hint for the first one: it’s called “Athleisure Ready” and includes a digital version of 4 patterns, as well as:
A0 print of Constellation Pullover
2 sets of new Wonderclips
A new Fiskars rotary
“I’d rather be sewing” enamel pin
Coordinating thread
A custom LN iron-on patch (from Anjori!)
10 yards of *really* nice fabric: athletic rib knit, periwinkle baby french terry, speckled BFT, magenta cotton spandex

I wonder who will get them?! Make sure to read tomorrow’s Feature Friday newsletter for more info on how you can get one sent to you. 🙂

Want to start your weekend with a new free pattern? (And help us combat the algo and spread the word about the upcoming sale for this small business?)

comment on this post with a guess at each bundles’ title and accompanying patterns! I’ll pick a winner tomorrow 🙂
