Dakota: An absolutely fabulous little pea coat which has a great fit and is practical year round. It features a slight A-line with side pockets and either a hood or collar and the classic buttonhole or bound buttons. This pattern includes the pattern for an optional lining too – great for the cooler months.


Jutta: This is a fantastic beginner’s easy sewing pattern! Girls will love this wrap skirt which is so versatile and can be worn all year round. If you’re new to sewing or fancy a quick project then this is the pattern for you. It has an elasticated back which makes for a snug and comfortable fit and is perfect for school and playtime, dress it up with colourful tights for your little fashionista.


Virginia: The Virginia Tunic Blouse is a great addition to your pattern stash! It comes in three lengths which makes it really versatile – great for the autumn with leggings or cooler summer days. Dress it up with a turned up cuff or keep it simple with an everyday knitted cuff and choose to fasten the back yoke with buttons or snaps.

This is great for the confident beginner and intermediate sewers.

Types of Fabric:

This pattern suits almost all fabric types. Woven or knit both is possible. In the past I have used corduroy as well as quilting cottons. If you are lining the top you can also use sheer fabrics like chiffon. The important thing is to have a firm yoke! Combining a woven fabric with knit or chiffon is also possible, just remember if you have a knit yoke you need iron interfacing which will give the yoke enough stability so it won’t stretch.
