About the sewing patterns...
Jamie Christina sewing patterns are written in such a way so that both the experienced and beginning sewer can enjoy the process and end product. Each pattern is written with concise instructions, detailed illustrations, and practical engineering for the home sewist. Nothing is assumed by Jamie when designing her patterns, which is why a glossary of terms defining techniques and words accompanies every pattern. It is Jamie's hope that her patterns will serve as a tool for the fashion enthusiast to express their creative artistry through sewing.
When asked in an interview with Sewing World Mag to describe her style and target audience she answered, "The style of my patterns ranges from vintage/retro to bohemian. I make my sewing patterns for the emerging sewer who doesn’t want to wear what everyone else is wearing. She also doesn’t want to spend days working on the pattern. She wants the pattern to be basic and straightforward with amazing results. She wants to make clothes for herself but wants others to think that she purchased it from a clothing boutique. When people ask where she purchased her clothing, she enjoys telling them that she made it herself."
The Mission Maxi Dress
"There are lots of illustrations and tips for working with knits that a beginner could follow. As a matter of fact, a "beginner" would benefit greatly working with this project. They'd learn a lot!" ~ Erica B.'s DIY Style!
The Miz Mozelle Dress
"I'm not sure I've ever used a pattern that fits so well with so little adjustment and it seems as though it may be one of those rare and lovely patterns that would fit well on just about anyone, principally because the waist is cinched in beneath the belt by a cased elastic, which means that you can fit the dress perfectly to your figure." ~ Flossie Tea Cakes
The Cupcake Apron
"If this apron doesn't make you want to invite all your friends over for a Real House Wives of Beverly Hills style tea party then I don't know what would!!"
