Getting creative with Nuppu prints and sewing pattern ideas
I've been wanting to gather some sewing patterns that I think would look great in our Nuppuu Print jerseys of Finland. These fabrics are made using the finest of materials with a stretch that holds well and a fantastic drape. These knits are medium weight, soft and hang heavy, making them perfect for lots of structured styles and when I started looking I was pleased to see many sewing patterns that fit what I was after.
Before I start with the pattern list I must share this gorgeous dress using Lumikellokuja Camo jersey, it is a perfect example of how you can work the designs into your project. This is a photo of Jenni over at Nuppu Print Company, who kindly assists me when I'm searching through their wonderful range!
Cora Tee by Dhurata Davies
Starting with this fabulous boxy top that comes with great variations, I love the design details which you could really play around with. Our Lumikellokuja Organic Jersey would be great for this where you could really get creative with the printed floral and solid areas of the fabric, especially love the strip detail on the back!
Joni Jumpsuit by Friday Pattern Co.
This is so nice! Jumpsuits can be playful and casual and this is very stylish. Again you can play around with the design and fabric elements. I think you would want to feel confident with a good quality stretch for this sewing pattern. If you are up for going for it with print I would just love to see this made in our Hopeapaju Frost Organic Jersey
Sointu Tee by Named Clothing
This is a perfect example of how knitted fabric can look so elegant especially with the tie waist band. It does look beautiful in a solid as this shade is beautiful but it would look lush in a print too!
The Edie Top by Merchant and Mills
An Instagram friend suggested this pattern to me. This top isn't specifically for knit fabric but it would still work with some stabilising in the neck line. The 'pouf' sleeves and ties are a great feature which our Nuppu prints are perfect for the occasion. I think this is just available as a PDF.
Linden Top by Grainline Studio
It's a classic as a sweatshirt and used times over but there are so many ways you can re-invent this pattern especially with print. This is the cropped top tee version and is super fast to make! Very simple to sew and when combined with a print fabric it comes into it's own, instant fanciness with stunning fabric!
Willa Dress by Fibremood
Fibremood describe this as a 'fluid, minimal wrap dress with limitless possibilities' so I knew this was a contender and their webpage is beautiful and modern worth a look...
Pembroke Dress and Tunic by Cashmerette
Carrying on with the tie and wrap theme I came across this brand that celebrates 'confidence and curves' making patterns exclusively for sizes 12-28. This made me realise I should be more diverse in my approach when trying to inspire with ideas. Look at the style option, below, so many variations available here.
Array Top and Dress by Papercut Patterns
Balloon sleeves, wraps and ties are a thing and I love this pattern that comes with the dress version too, leaving the sleeves wide. This is from the new range by Papercut, they make gorgeous designs.
River dress and top by Megan Nielsen
I picked this pattern for it's simple structure, here you can just let the fabric design shine! Some of these options the pattern suggests knit fabric. With this style you could have the floral print of our Lumikellokuja jersey running down one side.
