I have finally found a pattern that fits well. Most paper patterns, when I make them are either too small or I’m swimming in them. This is the 1st pattern I’ve had that I didn’t have to adjust or give away. Finished it, ironed it, wore it straight away. Great, thanks Pattern Emporium, onto the next project, Urban Pants.
This has become my new favorite. I initially planned it as a pyjama shirt but it came out so cute I have been wearing it with jeans. Super comfy with a great drape,. I find it flattering for my pear shaped frame. I sized down but added the pleat because I need a wee extra room in the hips but my upper bust and shoulders are narrow. I love the hi-low hem! Beautifully drafted shirt with stellar tutorial.
Definitely a favourite.
This is my first T shirt I have made. Absolutely love it. So easy to make. I cannot wait to make some more.
Can’t stop at one
This was my first PE sew and I have made quite a few of this pattern since. They pair so well with my Foxy Legs but also skirts and shorts.
All Kate’s patterns are easy to follow and her instructions are really well set out, including lots of photos to help you along the way.
Love this pattern!
Returning to sewing garments for myself after several years, and was told about PE patterns by my daughter. So, so glad she pointed me in this direction. I made several of these tees for a trip earlier this year, and they are just such an easy make, and so comfortable to wear. Thanks Kate.
