THE FRENCH DART SHIFT | new sewing pattern release!

MAVEN PATTERNS FDS VERSION C

 

The French Dart Shift… a new sewing pattern…coming soon to my ETSY shop!

A little sneaky look at VERSION C of the next Maven Sewing Pattern.

This is the third sleeve option: a long sleeve with a gathered cuff, finished with bias binding. The pattern also includes a short sleeve and a cap sleeve option.  This is one of my most favourite garments I’ve made, it’s so simple and easy to wear…this is actually blue linen tunic #2, the first one had short sleeves, but I’ve worn it so much, usually over my jeans, that it now has holes in the underarm!

The collar is designed to be worn rolled down, you know…sixties style….but it made a such a great photo standing up – I can’t actually promise how practical it is to wear with the collar standing up, but hey…it looks good! Talking of practical, there are in-seam pockets at the side seams, always useful.

  1. looks great looking forward to trying this… Jackie Kennedy style of dress!

    1. Thank you! I do love the Jackie Kennedy era for a bit of dress inspiration!

  2. This looks wonderful! As soon as I’m “on the ball” again, I’ll be including it in my sewing line up.

    1. Thank you! I’ve got a nice printed fabric I’m thinking of for my next one 🙂
