Antrim Dress (PDF)

I love the Antrim dress pattern and have made at least 5 versions of this dress. As it is made from knit fabrics it is very comfortable to wear and very flattering on lots of body shapes. 

I have adjusted the bodice slightly to allow the faux wrap section to fit more easily around the bust. I have also varied the length of the skirt on different versions. It's great for every day or dressing up.

Lago Tank (FREE PDF)

The Lago Tank is a wardrobe staple that you can wear in the summer on it's own or in the winter to layer up.

It's designed for knit fabrics with a strap width that allows for a bra strap. 

I have 3 of these in different neutral colours and because it doesn't take a lot of fabric, it's great for using up those larger left overs.

And best of all it's FREE to download!

Beausoleil top and dress (PDF)

The Beausoleil top is designed for woven fabrics. It has a lovely cold shoulder cut out that gives it quite a dressy feel when you are wearing it.

The original pattern has a centre-back lapped zipper but I moved that in my versions to be at the side to make it easier to manage. 

I have made two of these tops both in cotton lawn fabrics and they are so comfortable to wear, especially in the warmer weather.

Sheridan Sweater (PDF)

The Sheridan sweater comes with two different neck styles, two length options and three sleeve options giving loads of ways to customise it. 

It's great for soft knit fabrics and the pattern recommends at least 60% stretch.

A great garment for transitioning the seasons.
