I’m pretty obsessed with Orla Keily at the moment (and all things 60’s in case you hadn’t noticed). So, this little project is a homage to her super famous leaf pattern for which she is renowned. AND, this particular number is an upcycle from man’s shirt – but yours doesn’t have to be. You can just cut it from fabric if you prefer.

This pattern takes 1.5 metre of fabric (standard 150cm / 60inch width).

All my free sewing patterns are made to fit a size 12, but can be easily adjusted at key points to go larger or smaller. Have a look at the Making a pattern fit page for how to do it. There are also measurements on this pattern so it is easy to draw out yourself on wrapping paper or wallpaper lining if you don’t have a printer – or actually, sometimes its easier if you want to make adjustments.
