What Makes Our Patterns Different
My patterns feature the same sewing methods and construction techniques that are used to produce my garments at scale, making your sewing projects simpler, more efficient, and more fun.
TRIED & TESTED STYLES
My patterns have been in production and sold as finished garments for nearly a decade. I know these silhouettes work, I've made them in a myriad of different fabrics, I've incorporated years of customer fit and wear feedback over time, and thousands of folks have purchased and worn these styles, so you know they'll stand the test of time.
All my patterns are available in the same size range as our finished products, which includes sizes XXS-4XL, and I'm always working towards including more folks in our size offerings.
I relish in finding beauty and joy in small doses everywhere I can, and our detailed, thorough instructions for each pattern are no exception. They are designed to be inspiring and fun to look at as you sew through our styles, and hopefully return to them again and again.
Pattern files are constantly improving based on customer feedback and my own experience, and every pattern purchase gains you automatic access to the the most current, updated version. The digital file delivery system is designed to make this process seamless and super easy.

Very straightforward sewing pattern with great tips to help make my project come out well. I appreciated the pointers to make sure things stayed centered and how to get a professional finish.

I make my clothes from recycled’ fabrics, currently old linen tablecloths, usually I sew on my singer treadle 1933 machine but inexplicably the bobbin case has gone missing!
So I am now slow stitching (byhand) my delightful clyde jumpsuit- and even stitching it by hand is so simple, goes together like a jigsaw piece and the instructions simple and mostly clear.

I'd been wanting to try this pattern for awhile, but the high price led me to wait until I was very certain I wanted to make this investment. I'm still in the process of making the jumpsuit, and while there's many pros, there's also a few strong cons.
Pros: really like the different seam allowances, especially around the neckline; appreciate the guidance about where to top stitch and where to finish seams; like that the directions are very thorough; quick start guide is a nice bonus, if you've made this once or twice and just need reminders rather than hand-holding.
Cons: It seems like some of the pattern pieces don't align properly? I was sewing the pocket bag to the side inset piece (may have some of these names a bit wrong), and there was about 3/8" difference between the width of the side seamlines. I didn't want to cut this off to true them, as it would make the hip area about an inch smaller overall once I sewed up the entire garment, but it was too much of a discrepancy to ignore. I ended up cutting off the extra and sewing with a smaller seam allowance through the hip (3/8" rather than the 1/2" specified) to keep some of the hip width. I also found that the front jumpsuit seamline was about 3/4" longer than the side seamline, so I had to ease it in to make everything fit. It would also have been nice for the notches on the side panel to align with the top of the pocket rather than 1/2" above- a small thing, but something other indie pattern companies would have…
