Hello from Ann at Designer Stitch. I have worked as a freelance designer for well over 30 years developing clothing ranges for a number of women’s wear companies in Australia . I developed these ranges from size 8 through to a size 26 and have also taught adult education at both a TAFE and University level, in clothing, textiles and millinery studies. As a result of my vast teaching experience I have been operating my own fashion school for 16 years – The Designer Stitch School of Fashion and Design. My school has been very successful and I have a myriad of levels within my classes.


I am featuring for this Aspiring Designer Challenge is the Jenny Dress which is a gorgeous semi-fitted dress with dart shaping sitting just above the knee.

The dress has a flattering extended cap shoulder, a centre back zipper and back hem vent. The Jenny Wrap Dress can be constructed with its fashionable tie front overlay or make the Jenny Classic as a simple silhouette. Sizing is from 6 thru to 26.

Here are just a few pics from the amazing testing group which are also included in the inspiration gallery of the pattern:
