Sophie is here! July 20 2015

We're rather excited to introduce the latest Muse pattern - the Sophie cardigan!

Sophie is a cute, sporty cardigan, perfect for wearing with skirts, dresses or trousers. A fitted style, which curves gently in at the waist and flares out again over your hips. The cardigan sits at the high hip, making Sophie work just as well with trousers as with dresses.

Inspired by the gorgeous Sophie-Lee (who blogs over at Two Random Words), the Sophie cardigan can look dressy, classic, or casual, depending on the fabric and style mix that you make up. (Plus, it has a v neck option, which Sophie-Lee has been asking me for for a while now. Finally, here's your pattern, Sophie-Lee! ;-)

There are three different neckline options to choose from  - a classic round neck, a v neck, and a collar to give a touch of 1940's landgirl styling. There are two pocket options to play with as well - you can add patch pockets or side seam pockets with semi-circular openings. The raglan sleeves give fun options to use contrast fabrics. Plus, for the v neck and collar variations, you can choose between zip-up or button-up fronts. Lots of options for mixing and matching to make Sophie in your own style!

We've tried something new with the Sophie pattern as well - based on a suggestion from one of you, the Sophie print-at-home pattern comes with a 'layers' option. This means you can choose to print all sizes at once, or just the size (or two) you want - making it so much easier to trace or cut along the lines for your size.

As with all Muse pattern releases, for the first week it's on sale, all of the sale price (less those pesky bank fees) will be donated to a charity chosen by the muse behind the pattern - in this case, the St John ambulance and emergency service.

And as a gift for you, you can get 15% off the Sophie pattern with the code 'HELLOSOPHIE', valid until 27 July.
