    PE Patterns

    PE patterns are great.They are well drafted and the introductory videos and the comprehensive instructions really contribute to getting a great result. I have recommended them to some friends who are beginner sewers and they have had really good results.

    Staple pattern

    This is my staple tee pattern. The semi-fitted silhouette is devine, quick sew and instructions are detailed and easy to follow. I have made this is so many options that the KISB has taken over my wardrobe! Even made one in French Terry with long cuffed sleeves which is a wardrobe staple on cooler days.
