Pattern Mashing the Hello Gorgeous

3 min read


Pattern mashing is when you combine 2 or more patterns to create new options.

Pattern Mashing Puff Sleeve Square Neck Tee Dress

A few members of our awesomely creative team had fun mashing the the Hello Gorgeous with their favourite Pattern Emporium patterns. I have asked them to tell us what they did for their mash up.

PATTERNS: Hello Gorgeous Puff Sleeve Tee & Wanderlust Dress

HOW:"For a simple pattern mash with stunning results, I popped the Hello Gorgeous short cuffed puff sleeve straight onto the Wanderlust Dress" - Melanie

Livia Jonker-Yamada

PATTERNS: Hello Gorgeous Puff Sleeve Tee & Friday Feels Skirt

HOW: "The Hello Gorgeous (HG) has a more relaxed fit than the Friday Feels (FF) and I was aiming for a bodycon style dress. So I removed a bit of the positive ease of the top. As both pieces are cut on the the fold I overlapped the pattern pieces at the waistline, aligning them along the side seams. I then trimmed a tiny bit of excess along the centre front of the top to match the skirt. That’s it! Cut the fabric and sew accordingly to the HG instructions." - Livia

Tai Xie

PATTERNS:Hello Gorgeous Puff Sleeve Tee & In My Stride Flounce Skirt

HOW: "It’s surprisingly easy to create a mashup between Hello Gorgeous (HG) and In My Stride (IMS) Skirt. I laid the IMS pattern on top of the HG, aligning the (elastic) fold-line of the skirt pattern with the waist marking of HG. I kept the bottom curve of the skirt but curved the bodice part of the HG. I traced my new shape and followed instruction from there."- Tai

Marnie Durbidge

PATTERNS: Hello Gorgeous Puff Sleeve Tee & Every Me Tank Dress

HOW: "From the underarm up, I used the Hello Gorgeous (HG). From the underarm down, I used the Every Me Tank Dress (EMT). I lined the HG & EMT up at underarm points, raising the HG up 1cm (3/8") from the EMT. I also added some length to the EMT dress so I could do a casing (with elastic and a faux drawstring)." - Marnie

PATTERNS:Hello Gorgeous Puff Sleeve Tee & Wanderlust Dress

HOW: "I used the Hello Gorgeous for everything above the waist, and blended the waist out into the skirt section of the Wanderlust Dress, which made the dress a little less fitted at the natural waist." - Katie

PATTERNS: Hello Gorgeous Puff Sleeve Tee & Wanderlust Dress

HOW: "I mashed my all time favourite dress the wanderlust with my 2 new favourite options, the Hello Gorgeous 1/2 puff above elbow sleeve and the square neckline. I just popped these options on top of the Wanderlust bodice pieces and Voila the Hello Gorgeous Wanderlust Dress!!" - Jodie

Mel Stevens

PATTERNS: Hello Gorgeous Puff Sleeve Tee & Friday Feels Skirt

HOW: "After marking out the Friday Feels Skirt fold-over allowance, I placed the FF skirt on top of the Hello Gorgeous where I believe the 2 waists met. I traced all of this on to butchers/craft paper.

I measured from my shoulder down to my waist to work out where the indent of my waist began. I then made an estimated slight indentation/curve into the butchers paper pattern cause I wanted to avoid excess back fabric since there will be no back seam. This curve was a guess and can be adjusted by taking it in the sides, after you sew up the garment and try it on.
