I’m sure you all know that I’m a huge fan of I Am Patterns – I have made several of their designs and I am always excited when the lovely Blandine gets in touch to give me a sneak preview of their latest collection! ‘I Am Brilliant’ is their newest release and comprises of two versatile patterns.
The Zadie Jumpsuit pattern was released by Paper Theory in March 2019 and has been a favourite in the sewing community ever since.

Happy New Year! Although 2020 is shaping up to be a bit of a trilogy, among all the uncertainty that a global pandemic brings, something I can plan with assurance are my sewing projects!
