This pattern is available in our 6-20 and 16-30 size ranges. Our size ranges are based on different body proportions and bust cup sizes, so if you fall into sizes 16-20, do compare the body measurements in each size range to find the best match for your measurements. Both size ranges are drafted for the same height of 5’6″ / 167cm.

For this pattern, please choose the pattern size for which the hip measurement is nearest to your hip measurement (but also consider your seated hip measurement against the finished garment measurements).

PDF Sewing patterns

PDF sewing patterns are a convenient alternative to more traditional paper patterns. When you purchase a PDF file, you will be given access to download a set of PDF files including an instructions booklet and the pattern files. You can print the files at home, on A4 or US Letter sized paper, or you can send the Copyshop/A0 files to a printer (a “copyshop”). The printer will print out the files on large sheets and post them to you.

The pattern files are nested, so you can easily grade between sizes, and layered, so you can choose which size(s) you want to print.

It always surprises me how quickly #MeMadeMay goes by… how can we be a third of the way through already?! Le sigh.

You’d think I really was off to an office somewhere… today’s #MeMadeMay2021 #DiyWorkwear post features a schnittchenpatterns #cocojacket and a modified michelle.a.sews #msp_agnes skirt. The jacket in particular is one of my favourite makes as the plain black lintontweeds fabric has a beautiful texture, and a black tweed cardigan jacket goes with all the things.
