It’s the final reveal of the patterns from my forthcoming book “Ahead of the Curve: Learn to Fit and Sew Amazing Clothes for your Curves”, and after the Honeybourne Dress, Stanway T-shirt, Magna Pants and Kersoe Top, I think maybe I saved the best for last: introducing, the Foxhill Dress.

The Foxhill Dress is the ultimate in comfy chic: a princess-seamed, v-necked, swooshy skirted dress that you’ll want to reach for every day. It’s designed for heavy knits, like ponte, or dressweight scuba, which ups the comfort level even more!
Ready to pre-order now you’ve seen all the great patterns included? You can pre-order “Ahead of the Curve: Learn to Fit and Sew Amazing Clothes for your Curves” at Amazon, Bookshop.org or your local bookseller and be the first to get it later this year.
Those gorgeous princess seams means the Foxhill is a great pattern for teaching you all about Full and Small Bust Adjustments on princess seams, as well as how the raise or lower the curve to match your bust. But that’s not all! You’ll also learn how to do a forward shoulder adjustment, wide shoulder adjustment and more.
Emily (@notinator) made a fabulous model for the Foxhill, and she’s wearing a custom-printed dressweight scuba I had made from Fashion Formula in the UK. There aren’t that many heavyweight knit prints generally available, so custom printing is an amazing option if you want something with a bit of pizzazz!
So now you’ve seen all the patterns from the book, I hope you are even more excited about the possibilities of learning to fit with “Ahead of the Curve” – and having a whole new capsule wardrobe coming out of it. It’s not long til publication date now, and I can’t wait to see what you make.

Beautiful! I don’t wear dresses anymore, but live in tops and tunics and shorts or leggings. I can see this in both a jersey and woven top! Can’t wait for the book!
I love the dress. I am already thinking about how I am going make sure the seams line up.😄
