The Wolf and The Tree {Abby Tights} A Review

I've been a busy little sewer lately, my sew-jo is strong at the moment! I recently did a test sew for The Wolf and The Tree, had never heard of this designer before seeing the tester call, and if her latest pattern is anything to go by I suspect we will be seeing more from Saskia in the pdf pattern world in the not so distant future.

Originally this pattern was designed for 2 way stretch knits, but due to a few of us making suggestions its able to be used for both 2 way and 4 way stretch knits. This allows you to use a whole range of different types of knit, from stretch lace to sweater knits.. and even merino to make some lovely thermals for the colder weather.

My version is a 4 way cotton lycra version, using one of my favourite knit fabrics from The Art of Fabric, Alice.. I use it very sparingly, because I don't want it to be all gone!

This pattern comes with a few options
  • large size Range - 0-14
  • regular and extra wide yoga waistband
  • elastic waistband
  • side accents (panel like mine, or ruffles)
  • french seam option, 
  • cloth diaper fit
  • Layers for printing
You can check this pattern out here use the coupon code ''Abbystights"to get $3 off the pattern, Score! its definitely a very versatile pattern, a staple in any wardrobe.
