PATTERN DETAILS

Invigorate your casual wardrobe with the breezy Paloma. The Paloma is as comfortable as your most-loved t-shirt, but adds a shapely, elegant flair. The Paloma has a flat front and gathering at the sides. It can be easily sewn on any sewing machine, and is perfect for your first (or hundredth) sewing project using knits. This pattern includes three variations - top, tunic or dress - and can be made with short- or 3/4-length sleeves. The instructions provide a tutorial for sewing with knits using a conventional sewing machine. Detailed tips on sewing with knits are available at SewLiberated.com/sewing-with-knits. Finally, we offer complete kits with the fabric and Steam-a-Seam for making this pattern at SewLiberated.com/kits. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sewing with knit fabrics (we provide a tutorial for first-timers - no serger necessary) Straight and curved seams Gathering SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Women's XS (0-2) to XL (18-20)
