This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Note if purchasing copy shop printing: Some of the pattern pieces are divided across two A0 sheets. The A0 sheets will need to be joined where indicated.

Suggested fabrics: 

Outer fabric: Medium/heavy weight woven fabric with some drape. Soft fabrics such as wool blends, tweed and faux fur are ideal. Knit/stretch fabrics are not recommended as they will cause the shape to distort and affect the fit.

Lining fabric: Lightweight woven fabric. Woven cottons such as quilting cotton, lawn and poplin look great and are easy to work with. Silky/synthetic lining fabrics look beautiful and are lovely to wear but are harder to work with.
