Papercut Patterns Sakura Collection At Backstitch


We are excited to share with you the latest Papercut collection of sewing patterns, Sakura. Featuring nine new patterns, the Sakura Collection is inspired by Japanese minimalist aesthetics and easy wear garments with a relax fit. Sakura, or Cherry Blossom, evokes ideas of beauty and grace. Of Japanese culture and simple elegance. Papercut have worked to incorporate these elements into this pattern collection to create everyday garments that are both flexible and practical. As with every Papercut collection, the designs are based around a theme rather than a season, to appeal to a global community in a range of climates.

Katie Romagnoli, designer behind the Papercut Patterns brand, worked so hard to try and release the Sakura collection before her baby arrived, but it seemed her little one had other ideas! Katie and baby are doing well now though and the team at Papercut has rallied to bring us this fabulous collection. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Papercut Patterns Kochi Kimono Papercut Patterns Kochi Kimono. From left to right: Variation 1; Variation 2; Variation 3

Of course every Japanese-inspired collection needs a kimono, so what better place to start than with the Papercut Kochi Kimono?! Variation 1 is unlined and features side ties, neckline band and front patch pockets. Variation 2 is lined and includes facing, patch pockets and no band or side ties. Variation 3 features a neckline band and is unlined with no pockets or side ties. The Kochi Kimono can be made from pretty much any woven fabric, from wool to soft chiffon.

Papercut Patterns Otsu Jeans Papercut Patterns Otsu Jeans, seen here with the Papercut Kyoto Sweater (left) and Aomori Twist Top (right)

The Papercut Otsu Jeans were inspired by Papercut's 'Peter and the Wolf Pants', but have a complete new twist. Stunning detailing makes these trousers truly fabulous. They feature hidden front pockets, slimming seam details, back yoke and front half yokes for contrast fabric options. Choose a medium-weight woven fabric with stretch, such as denim, corduroy or velvet. The Aomori Twist Top, seen above in white, was designed to provide another fun, 'different' top, as an alternative style to the hugely popular Bowline Sweater. The Aomori Twist Top has interesting pattern pieces that work together to give you bold shape and texture, while offering something unusual for your sewing pleasure. The Aomori Twist Top can be made in knits or wovens for the sleeveless version, or a soft knit for the long-sleeved option.

Papercut Patterns Nagoya Pants Papercut Patterns Nagoya Pants, seen from left to right in Version 1 (ankle length), V2 (cropped) and V3 (shorts)

The Papercut Nagoya Pants are wide leg trousers designed to demonstrate great tailoring and clean lines. The waistband is designed to sit at the natural waist and features double-stud buttons. Other features include curved front pockets, front fly, back darts and three length options for ultimate versatility.

Papercut Mito Cami and Dress Pattern Papercut Mito Cami and Dress Pattern

The Papercut Mito Cami/Dress can be made into a sweet, pretty summer dress or used as a low-back petticoat or camisole. There are separate bust cups for easy alteration or lace panels, adjustable straps and two length options. Use a lightweight woven fabric, such as silk, cotton or rayon/viscose.

Papercut Kobe Top and Dress Papercut Kobe Top and Dress

The Papercut Kobe Dress and Top pattern has a beautiful pleat-back detail. The pattern is named after Kobe City and the mountains that frame the harbour. Its back detail features two long pleats overlapping a key-hole neckline with side seam slits and a clean, scoop neck front. The dress version is mid-calf length, and the top has a cropped front but a dipped back hem for added interest. You obviously love this design as much as we do as we have completely run out already! But don't worry, more of these wonderful patterns are on their way to us from New Zealand and we can alert you when they have arrived if you if you click on the 'Notify me when in stock' link on our web page, here.

Papercut Sapporo Coat sewing pattern Papercut Sapporo Coat Pattern

Last but not least, we have the Papercut Sapporo Coat pattern to introduce to you. This is another Papercut pattern that is so well loved it is already sold out! Again, more are on their way. The Sapporo Coat is a fully lined cocoon coat with dramatic, angled seaming and discrete front pockets. Named after Sapporo for their famous snow festival, this coat can be made with woven wool to keep you toasty warm in winter. But the design doesn't stop there. The Sapporo Coat would also make a stunning layer in warm weather. Go for a mid-weight woven in a bold print and you're bound to turn heads.

We look forward to seeing you all in your Sakura creations - happy sewing!
