Papercut Patterns: New Range In!

We are lucky enough to stock so many amazing and creative pattern designers, but because of this, it's hard to pick a favourite but New-Zealand based Papercut Patterns are definitely high up on our list. Everything about them is a joy - from the beautiful but very practical packaging (the patterns are printed on recycled brown trace and designed to hang up for storage, just like a real fashion studio) to the original and highly wearable garments. Plus, owner Katie Brown has always had a passion to make the brand as sustainable as possible and to reduce her/our impact on resources. The Sapporo Coat and the Anima Sweatpants have been staples in-store, in our classes and in our own wardrobes too!


The latest range is called GEO and features inspiration from both geometry and geology - designs are called, Ravine, Pinnacle and Fjord, and there are really interesting triangle design features and plunging necks/backs. We will be stocking four patterns from the new range which cover all the essentials: trousers, top/sweater, dress and jumpsuit as well as having options for 'Rookie' and 'Skilled' sewers.


Top Row: Sierra Jumpsuit, Palisade Pants, Ravine Dress

Bottom Row: Palisade Pants, Ravine Dress, Pinnacle Top/Sweater

There are some great photos being shared on social media which show the versatility of these patterns and just how different each garment can look depending on the fabric used. You can follow Papercut on Instagram for inspiration, or of course, share with us @raystitch. And if you need any advice on choosing the best fabric for your project then we would love to help - pop in if you're local or email/phone for a chat!


But as we welcome these fab four designs to our pattern room, we also are saying goodbye to some favourites to make room. This is your chance to snap up these patterns on sale, now only £15 before they are all gone!


From left to right: Pneuma Tank, Flutter Sleeve Dress/Top and Guise Pants, Milano Cape.

We are thinking of the Pneuma for keeping up our new year's resolution to be more active, getting prepared for spring with the Flutter top and trousers while the Milano Cape is just perfect for this chilly weather!

Whichever range you choose from we hope that you will enjoy making and wearing your Papercut project :)
