The Jersey Collection from Deer & Doe
Last week Eléonore of Deer & Doe announced the Jersey Collection! We’re so excited to have received the first two patterns in the collection, the Brume Skirt and Ondée Sweater.*
The Jersey Collection will include patterns designed specifically for jersey and stretch fabrics. Every pattern envelope in the collection includes tips to conquer sewing with jersey as well as detailed instructions to use the patterns, if you have an overlocker or a regular sewing machine.
The Brume Skirt is a pencil skirt with characteristic style lines. High waisted, it’s designed to emphasise without being too snug: it showcases your shape in the right spot, and it’s slitghly larger under the belly and the butt so that’s it’s still elegant.
Comfort is also the priority of this skirt, thought to be worn in everyday life: no elastic in the waistband, designed to take advantage of the natural resistance of jersey (you can still add one if you need more support), and no annoying center back seam.
The Ondée Sweater addresses a simple problem: when wearing lots of flared dresses and skirts, it’s incredibly difficult to find a sweater or pullover to wear on top. Ondée is designed to showcase cinched clothes (shown above with an Anemone skirt and an empire waist dress).
The Ondée sweater has many declinations: it includes two neck variations (higher neckline with a flat jersey collar, and scoop neck, perfect for a shirt collar) and two sleeve variations (long, or short with perfectly retro sleeve cuffs ), it makes for a very versatile pattern that will look perfect with many outfits and almost all the other Deer & Doe patterns!
