– 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?

Suggested fabrics:

Main: The pattern is designed for medium/heavy woven non-stretch fabrics such as wool blends, padded nylon, tweed, soft-shell, etc.

Lining: Soft, warm fabric such as fleece, sherpa, teddy, etc.

You can use knit (stretch) fabrics for either the outer or the inner. If you use knit fabrics for both the outer and the inner then your garment will fit a little larger than expected.

Depending on your main fabric choice, you may wish to use a different fabric for your pockets.

Sizing: 0-3 months – 12 years. Please check the size chart.

Notions: Chunky open zip; scrap of light/medium interfacing for the welt pocket option; ribbing for ribbed arm cuff option.
