MAKERIST 2 DOLLAR SALE TOP PICKS
Merry Christmas everyone, you’re in your quiet boxing day slump…recovering from the big day. Time to treat yourself! Makerist is having a big 2 dollar sale, where so many of their patterns are just 2 dollars! The sale runs from Dec 26-30th. It’s a brilliant time to get your hands on some of your favourite patterns for a bargain price. Here’s the main sale page for you to take a look at.
I’ve selected some of my favourites to share with you guys, let me know what you think:
This pinafore dress by Bloem Linen is just so simple and lovely, maybe more of a spring pattern – but perfect layered over some knitwear in the colder months.
The Marius shorts by Ma Petite Fabrique are just lovely, I love the cute frill on the main pic. But this pattern comes with 8 different versions, all that for just 2 dollars in the sale!
The Leona Dress looks lovely, especially in this velvet. I’m already making this pattern, it would have been my Christmas/New Years party dress – but I’m just going to party at home with it on! I’m also planning on layering it with some knitwear and wearing it as an everyday dress. I think that with 2020 turning out the way it is, we need to wear our clothes differently. Sometimes more formal dressy dresses can be worn everyday with boots and jumpers, and I’m totally okay with that.
The Florence blouse is by Size Me Patterns a new designer for Makerist so I’m happy to see them in the 2 dollar sale and cant wait for you to try our their patterns. They all look lovely. I love the shirring detail on the cuffs.
Another blouse that I’ve had my eye on for a while is the Jolanda blouse by Atelier Vicolo N.6. I love the top bib section with the frill and I think this would look amazing hacked into a dress!
My next pick is the Virginia Bag, I’m actually part way through making this one. This is the perfect project bag for me, I always have a different sewing project on the go. When restrictions allowed me I would travel to and from my parent house to sew with my mum. This bag has 3D pockets and an adjustable strap, a leveled up tote bag!
One of my new year sewing goals is underwear, it’s something I wear every day. It really is the ultimate basic! If 2020 has taught me anything, its about being comfy, and what’s more comfortable than the big pants! These high waisted knickers looks lovely, again by Fitiyoo. So versatile and the different panels would allow you to add inserts of lace or mesh. A perfect scrap busting project.
These are just a really small selection of patterns from the sale, you can check out everything here, Makerist 2 dollar sale.
