The new styles
Handmade details, versatile garments and beautiful colours: Our newest #sisterMAGpatterns Collection is one for the ages. We‘ve put together some of our favourite patterns so far and our graphic designer Ilaria Trombí wears them beautifully. You can find all patterns for sale in our shop online: www.sistermagpatterns.com
Smocking is an embroidery technique used to gather fabric so that it can stretch. Before elastic, smocking was commonly used in cuffs, bodices, and necklines in garments where buttons were undesirable.
The pattern features smocked embroidery at the back and the front of the blouse. It leads to an almost babydoll-like silhouette.

Smocking was used most extensively in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but is experiencing a new high with usage in High Fashion or trends like the #CottageCore Movement
Special detail: Wide cuffs with two beautiful buttons
We love this easy outfit with a bow top and bermudas. If you now think that this is only something for summers? Think again! On Instagram we are sharing how to wear these patterns in autumn & winter.

Fun detail: the bows can me made with any colour and add a special touch to this garment. Searching for some fun tights to pair with this bermuda? We were lucky to try out Gambettes Box – a subscription for tights – from France and are loving it. Click here to explore.
What we love? Showing you how one pattern looks in different fabrics. This jacket was featured on the cover of #sisterMAG57 and we are now showing it in a wool fabric with beautiful buttons and embellishing outer seams.

With a special detail: the sleeves have a sewn-in fold, which makes for a super special silhouette
What we love: adding a little touch with a vintage brooch. You can always find beautiful ones at flea markets, vintage shops or simply search for „vintage brooch“ on etsy.com
Nothing has been quite as popular as shoulder pads in 2020 – who would have thought? This T-Shirt was already launched a few weeks ago in our #sisterMAGpatterns shop: it is a super easy pattern made of jersey with two shoulder pads integrated. Pair it with jeans, bermudas or skirts – the possibilities are endless. We‘ve put together a lot of ideas on our Pinterest board – click below.
And if you want to really make a colour statement: make the whole outfit in a bold tone such as this bright yellow. We love the hue that reminds us of the falling leaves in fall. What colour would you choose?
Want to look elegant on a budget? Stay in one colour scheme – monochrome is key. Like this outfit with an airy blouse and bermudas in the same colour.

Ready to wear bermuda shorts in fall? We love this preppy look with high-knee socks. White from head-to-toe.
We are all-in for Oversized blazers this year. Our new pattern can be made in lighter materials or in a thick wool for lower temperatures. Wear it open and loose or tie it with a belt from the same fabric. The oversized, attached pockets give it a more playful feel.
