I'm absolutely thrilled to have recently added the full collection of sewing patterns by the relatively new Swedish indie brand The Assembly Line.
When I first came across this brand on Instagram a few months ago I instantly knew that I wanted to stock this collection! The Assembly Line has a very distinct look and style which very clearly sets them apart from other indie sewing pattern brands.
Launched in November 2017, these carefully crafted sewing patterns have a contemporary Scandinavian style. The ethos behind the brand is to design contemporary, functional and, at the same time, gorgeous items of clothing for us all to make and cherish. Clean lines with one or two interesting details are a key feature of this beautifully pared back collection.
Anki Josefsson is the woman behind the brand, and in collaboration with pattern maker Lotte Bohlin Lindstrom her aim is to offer an alternative to the mass produced options found on the High Street. With these patterns it really is easy to create a garment with high-end results, even if you have relatively little sewing experience.
With 13 styles to choose from, including dresses, tops, a skirt, trousers and outerwear, there's something for everyone...
I chose the Cuff Top for my first make in Robert Kaufman's Draper Denim, I found the instructions very easy to follow, plus it was quick and easy to make.
I love the elasticated cuff detailing on the sleeves, so much so that I've since made a second one, as shown above, this time in Nani Iro's Planet in Teal Green..... this style works equally well in plains and patterned fabrics. I'm now busy making the Almost Long Trousers... my first attempt at sewing trousers and so far so good....
I'll be showcasing these fabulous patterns at The Knitting & Stitching Show at Olympia, London in the Spring along with a selection and our designer fabrics, click here for full details and ticket offer.
