In December 2017, Striped Swallow Designs introduced our very first digital cut file as a freebie to our Facebook group, which Erin hand-drew and digitized: the Christmas Unicorn. Since then, we have released over 50 new designs, with new ones coming out every other Monday.
But, what exactly is a digital cut file, how is it used?
The Girls' Coachella Shorts were just re-released and have been lengthened just a bit, but if you would like to add additional length -- follow along this post.
Digital cut files are released every other Monday and are on sale through their respective Fridays, no coupon necessary. Each week has it's own theme, and of course this week's theme was a no-brainer. After the initial four St. Patrick's Day designs, I couldn't help but create one more, and wanted to pass on my enthusiasm to the entire SSD community. Continue to the blog post to download the free cut file!
Today I have a fun addition to make the already amazing Cloud 9 Tee even better...free sleeve flounce pieces, woo! If you haven't already picked up the Cloud 9 Tee, head to our SSD Sewing Group on FB and grab the coupon code in the pinned post to pick up the Cloud 9 (for girls and women) for free!
With the release of the Girls' Willow Raglan comes something else that is new to SSD--trimless pages! I am a huge fan of trimless patterns and I hope you guys love this change too. Additionally, there is no separate US Letter and A4 pattern files! Using Acrobat Reader, simply select which format you use in the layers section. Easy peasy!
I will be honest...Harbor's school dress code had me less than thrilled about sewing for school when I first learned of their "uniform" policy this summer. Once I finally moved past the fact I couldn't sew all my pretty floral fabrics for her, it turned out to be pretty fun and a fantastic sewing challenge for me! Talk to me in 9 years when she is finishing 8th grade and I've been sewing these colors for that long though...I might feel a little different ha.
The Summer Dawn Wrap Dress is very dear to my heart as it was designed for my sister, Summer Dawn, to get ready in on her wedding day. I used the short dress (View A) for myself and the other bridesmaids to get ready in and created her gorgeous dress by a simple mod on the short dress.
