Stuff worth mentioning:
This list is not intended to be exhaustive. If you know other new patterns, that were released this april, feel free to tell me in the comments. In case you are wondering, the list is sorted by the date I added the items.
Another side note I want to add: although I do have affiliate accounts for some of the companies mentioned here, I do not use any affiliate links for the listed new patterns. I only use such links if I actually made the pattern and in that case I would always point it out clearly.

  1. I already downloaded the Valley Skater Dress and had it printed at a print shop. It has been added to my sewing queue. Thanks for the lists; I can only imagine how much work it is to compile them.

    1. Can't go wrong with a pattern from Sinclair! Will you make the lantern sleeves? They look so special!
      It is quite some work, but not really much more than any other post - counting all the stuff that usually needs to be done, with photos and such. And I enjoy the list myself, nice bonus :)
