Holiday Debut Tour

Holiday Debut Tour

Saskia Smith

The closing of 2015 also marks the end of my first year as PDF sewing pattern designer! It has been amazing so far already! I have released 4 patterns - tights, children's socks, adult socks and a hair accessory pattern and several patterns in various stages of completion, so 2016 looks to be just as interesting as these past few months have been!

In celebration of this great first year The Wolf and the Tree, Hello Holli and Chalk and Notch - three new designers of 2015 - are getting together for a Holiday Debut Tour with your favorite blogs and fantastic prizes in a grand Rafflecopter giveaway worth $300! And - all three of us will offer 20% off our patterns with the coupon code 'Holiday'! 

This is how it all started: { If you are interested in reading more about what inspires me and the beginnings of this journey, check out 'Our Story'. } 

I grew up in Germany where as a little child my mother taught me how to trace Burda patterns on the kitchen floor with ironed newspaper and carbon paper. I can't even remember how old I was but I loved the feeling of accomplishment that first little bag I made for my toys gave me. I drafted my first clothes in high school and then for my children when they were born. 

The art form of sewing is coming back and I am so excited to be able to provide you with patterns that are simple yet elegant with many designs filling up my sketchbook and lots to come in 2016! I hope you are excited too! :)

Now down to business! The Holiday Debut Tour features the fabulous 'Blue Ridge Dress' by Hello Holli and the gorgeous 'Fishtail Kimono' by Chalk and Notch! We have had an outpouring of Bloggers and Sponsors to go on this tour with us! It has been humbling to say the least!
