Relaxation in this shawl collar cardigan is a must. The front fringe trim is an exceptionally lovely detail.


These contrast sweatpants are so cute you can wear them in public! They are made from a flowing viscose and feature a contrast color waistband and hem ankle cuffs.


This jumpsuit features chest pockets, a plunging neckline and a gathered waist. It’s stylish and super comfortable!


This midi dress is closed in the front with buttons and features jumper style straps, heart pockets and a cinched waist.


The princess seams model the dress up closely to the figure, the segment can be varied by a ruffled concealed placket. Below the concealed queued skirt with large pockets.


Sweet and girlish, this dress buttons all the way up and features a figure-hugging top and a belt. The generous queued skirt border is especially nice!


This open front cardigan features a draped shawl collar, great for spring days.

This empire waist tunic has airy sleeves and seam pockets in a soft jersey material.


A great dress for a weekend in the garden! The finely swinging skirt emphasizes the empire waist. Processed longitudinal stripes on the side panels and the cap sleeves give the impression of it being worn with a bolero.

Happy Sewing!

    These garments don’t fit the models, the midi dress looks awful in the bust area and very uncomfortable. Also, the garments have wear wrinkles, like the models sat around too long waiting to be photographed, even linen can be pressed to look better than that. Is this the best you can do ??

      Multi-size patterns never fit the bust properly. At least with these you know what you’re getting ;)

      Still like several of them, and will be making them.

      I’m glad my grandmother taught me; if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything. I’m all about corrective criticism, but you don’t have to be rude.

    The dresses don’t fit very well, especially the midi. Yikes!

    These are fun, flirty, and flattering. I think they’d look great on a range of sizes. I have a friend who is a size 5XL and she would look gorgeous in these, but so would my daughter, who only just fits on the plus size range. What a great collection!

    BTW – the links to the empire waist tunic and dress are not working.
