We're so excited to welcome Valerie into our extended sizing! Valerie not only comes in sizes 28-52 bringing it up to a 56.5" hip, but she now comes with small, medium and full bust options to give you an even better fit! For more sizing info, check out our sizing page HERE.
In addition to new sizing, Valerie now has four sleeve options so you can have a Valerie for every season and any occasion! We love the flounce and new short sleeve for warmer weather. The new three-quarter sleeve features a lovely bound finish, which is perfect for transitional seasons. The original long sleeve with the cuff and bound placket is a great chance to take your skills to the next level. Plus it makes for a knockout wardrobe piece for the cooler months!
We're so excited to announce this is our first pattern to include projector files! We love that projector files eliminate some paper waste and save some time in the sewing process!
This update also includes some minor changes to the pattern. It includess shortening the waist by 1/4" (6mm) across all sizes, a refined sizing grade through the sleeve length and a little extra contouring through the side seams to tailor the fit even more. We even updated the instructions to provide the most clarity for your sewing experience!
Our in-depth instructions are built to hold your hand from first snip to final stitch. While features like the contoured raglan sleeve, slash pockets and fitted bodice place Valerie in the intermediate category, we're confident that our fully-illustrated instructions can guide an even adventurous beginner through to making something beautiful.
Forget-me-not Patterns is all about timeless shapes and delightful details and the Valerie Raglan Dress sewing pattern is no exception. Valerie's versatility has grown even more with the new sleeve options included in this update. We love how the clean raglan lines bring something unique to a sweet A-line dress. Plus, it's got pockets!
We love imagining all the different woven fabrics to pair with the Valerie patterns and all the places to wear her - a bright satin for a cocktail party, or a soft cotton gingham for a country picnic, a cool geometric crepe for the office, a sweet floral viscose for breezy weekends. The possibilities are endless!
We're celebrating Valerie's return with 20% off until midnight March 1st (Eastern Time)! Just use the code VALERIE at checkout. Click HERE to get your Valerie Raglan Dress. We can't wait to see what you make!
