The Huon Shirt and Dress is our latest pattern release, and while we absolutely see it fitting in with our aesthetic, and our capsule of existing patterns, it's also a little more romantic than our other patterns.

About the Huon
Inspired by French artist smocks, the Huon comes with a shirt-length view and a dress-length view- with pockets (of course)! With short-sleeve and long-sleeve options, you can use our classic sleeve band or the gathered long-sleeve.
Testing the Huon
We had a lovely bunch of testers for our Huon Shirt and Dress, and we're thrilled to be able to share some pictures of their makes!
Shannon from @rare.device made a gorgeous purple Huon Dress with the long-sleeves. We love the drama of of the long-sleeve dress version, and love the idea of pairing it with tights for dramatic winter outfits!
Sierra from @sierraburrell made the View A of our Huon Shirt! We hadn't really considered the possibility of tucking the shirt version in, but when Sierra sent through her pictures, we were convinced! We love the romantic colours here.
Natalie of @definatalie (who is the talented maker behind @fancyladyindustries) made this gorgeous soft pink version of our Huon Dress! We love how drapey this is, and the possibilities of using a slightly sheer fabric!
Sam of @whatsammade bravely tested our Huon Dress, and ticked off so many 'sewing firsts'! The dress has a gorgeous Rifle Paper print, and the results speak for themselves!
Romy-Krystal of @sewlike made a gorgeous shirt version of our Huon. We love the bright colours of the top, and Romy was the one who suggested styling top open, which got us thinking about duster possibilities for the pattern!
