Skill level:

The skill level on this pattern is intermediate, it would likely be a more complex pattern for a beginner, and a relatively easy pattern for an intermediate sewer. Advanced beginners could tackle this pattern if you know how to sew darts, insert an invisible zip, and under stitch.

A basic knowledge of how to use a sewing pattern, and sewing machine knowledge is needed for this pattern.

Please note, some files will download as .zip files. You will need to unzip the files before using. On an apple computer you can double click the zipped file, and this will open a new folder that contains the patterns.
On a windows computer you will need to right click on the .zip folder, and click "extract all".

This is a PDF file, and therefore will need to be opened in a programme that accepts pdf format. Adobe reader works well and can be downloaded online completely free for windows/mac! "Preview" also works well on Apple Mac computers.

You only need to print the files that are relevant to you.
For example, if you are a UK customer and print on an A4 sized printer, you will want to download both A4 files, but can ignore the US Letter sized files.
If you are a UK customer and want to print your pattern file at a printshop in large format, download the A0 printshop file, to print at a printshop, and then download the A4 pattern and instruction file for your instructions.

Fabric and notions:

For this pattern you will need upto 100cm/1.1 yards of 150cm/59'' width fabric (based on the largest size) or upto 130cm/1.5 yards of 114cm/44-45'' fabric. You will also need the same amount of lining fabric, a 16''/40cm invisible zip, 2x 10mm rings and 2x 10mm sliders (for straps).

Sizing:

This pattern is sized for UK sizes 4 - 18 (US sizes 0-14). Included in the PDF (and the product images) is a size chart, so you can work out your best fitting size based on the chart. Please sew based on your measurements rather than your normal store bought size.

Please note - both the US letter and A4 patterns are written in UK sizing and you should determine which size to cut based on your UK size measurements.

Extra info:

Please sew a test sample before using your final fabric, (in a similar fabric to that of your final fabric) to ensure a good fit, and to allow for any alterations needed before sewing the final garment.
