So so chuffed with our new pattern.

It's right here, right now. Available in our gorgeous little shop and online.


The perfect summer top or dress, with so many variations there is something to suit everyone.

As you know Jo and I, always have 'real women' in mind when we are designing our clothes patterns, we want them to be totally wearable for all body shapes.

We also include lots of variations, so you can personalise them to suit your own unique style. For me, that is what making my own clothes is all about, having something unique, a total one off. 

Sylvie, has 4 sleeve variations, so little tweaks completely change the look of the garment.

 I made this one with ruffled short sleeves, for a casual day dress.


The drawstring neckline means there are no tricky fastenings to worry about and you can wear it high or low, or even off the shoulders. You can also make it as short or as long as you want. 

Both the Dress and the Top can be made with sleeves or sleeveless, and the cute key hole detail on the neckline can be as daring as you dare !

I made teeny spaggeti shoulder ties for this sleeveless version and you can just about see the red ric-rac I added to match my red salties - seriously I am ocd



 If you do decide to put a sleeve in, it's an easy raglan and super flattering, without being too fussy.  The fluted sleeve option gives it a high end vibe and and made in a good quality linen looks great when you are going 'out out'

The dress has pockets in the side seams and the top has little side splits, so that it fits really nicely over the top of jeans or shorts. 

The pattern itself is multi sized 10 - 20, and each size is colour coded on the pattern to make cutting out simpler. The pattern comes with a detailed instruction booklet with clear diagrams to help you each step of the way. 

What's not to like?  You can buy Sylvie in our shop, or here is the link to our online store:

Happy Sewing.
