    It was so super quick, literally it took me less time to assemble the garment than it did to assemble and cut out the pattern. We went to the mall and got loads of compliments and some asking where i got it. Very professional looking finished product.

    This pattern is worth it. So easy to follow, and the garment at the end is so cute. Its very versatile, you can do this all in one fabric, 2 fabrics, with the pocket or without. I love it!

    Its really flexible, (you) could do a lot with this pattern. I think this is a great base model. Will be using this again, have plans to extend it as dress pattern, and short sleeved.

    Buy it NOW!!!! Fits great, looks great, cowl neck to keep the neck warm (especially if you don’t like actually wearing a hood) and a warm hood for the cooler weather or wind outside. Use a thinner knit fabric for autumn or spring or thicker knits for winter. Love this pattern, great work 🙂

    It was an easy pattern from start to finish and comfy to wear! The ease of it and love a pattern that prints in layers.

    Don’t let the fact that this is for knits scare you away from this pattern. It is so easy to make and the kids will love it!

The Small Print


Every pattern we make has been tried & tested first by our team, then by specially selected pre-testers, then by a group of up to 50 different sewers of different abilities, ages, sizes, shapes, body types, and experience levels.

We literally spend hours designing, testing and checking the pattern to make sure it works and the instructions are easy to follow. Hopefully you’ll love the end result as much as we do! But, if for any reason you don’t, please get in touch so we can help.


This pattern can be used to make beautiful little garments for personal use, or can be made in limited quantities to sell. You can only sell the finished product; you cannot sell the pattern or these instructions. We’d love you to include a credit to as the pattern designer when you make garments from the pattern to sell, but it’s up to you.


As soon as you have paid you will receive a link to download the pattern, so you can get started immediately if you like. Note, this is a digital, download-only pattern. You will not receive a physical copy in the post.
