This month, we are releasing a new Vintage Pattern to add to our line of high quality sewing patterns!. The pattern, 271 Sunset Wrap, is a classic one-arm wrap shawl inspired by elegant 1940s fashion. The relatively simple construction makes it a great beginner’s project as well as a quick sew for more experienced sewers. This garment can be sewn up in about an hour!
The 271 Sunset Wrap is a one-size-fits-all garment that can be made for any season with fabrics with a variety of textures and weights. It can be a great cover for summer evenings or a beautiful and warm layer in the cold months. This pattern also lends itself well to embellishments from embroidery to applique to edgings. It is also perfect with a vintage (or otherwise) brooch.
Folkwear is also selling kits with fabulous fabrics that are perfect to make this fun wrap. We've got an exquisite heavy cashmere (in two colors - paprika and a blush pink), a gorgeous grey poly crepe, and a wool blend boucle in a fire engine red.
Folkwear’s 271 Sunset Wrap is available as a traditional paper pattern and as a downloadable PDF pattern. And, it is on SALE for the next two weeks!
