Sewing has always been my hobby and my profession. I first trained as a tailor as a young girl after which I worked for some fabulous designers. To fit work around my son I became a teacher of Textiles and Product Design. When my son finished school and moved to the USA I decided to start my own business and do what I love best; draft patterns and teach beginners and advanced sewers how to make their projects look professional. I hope you enjoy my patterns and instruction. Now we followed our boy to the US and I get to sew in the beautiful Californian sunshine!View all patterns by designer (53) »
Pattern is for US letter format printers only! To order the European A4 version please go to the alternate listing.
The pack includes patterns for ages 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5 & 5-6.
Detailed photo instructions are attached to age 1-2 and of cause you have the video instructions which show you how to make this easy beginners jacket.
Learn how to line and interline, use understitching for a smooth edge, insert a sleeve and make a rouleaux loop fastening and create a bubble hem.
Watch the video to see how to make this super cute jacket and be amazed to see how easy it is to put together.
Fabric use is minimal, I tend to cut from rests but 1/3 of a yard is plenty.
So you just have to get yourself some great fabric, watch the video instructions on You Tube and you are ready to go.
None of my patterns are multi sized so there is one size per file, this saves a lot of paper and confusion as to which line you have to cut.
Every pattern is hand drafted and then imported into a CAD program to make sure you have a pattern that fits and looks good too! No pattern is automatically graded or computer generated with software. Having trained as a tailor 30 years ago I know that pattern generating software can never replace the skill of a pattern drafted by hand. Try my patterns and you will love the fit. No loose armholes that are cut too low or sleeves that hang of the shoulder.
The pattern pack includes:
A pattern in PDF format ready to print on regular US letter size paper with assembly

No serger is required to make this dress.
If you want to reproduce the Bolero for your own small business I would be delighted.
Please note that the patterns I design are not to be used for larger scale production.
