    I really like this pattern. It’s a classic jumper.
    I had to really squeeze the fabric measurements to fit the pattern on, so get a little bit extra fabric than what the pattern asks for.


    Wonderful pattern thankyou, I must say though the dawn jeans fit very snug I made following my measurements a practice run if you will. They didn't take me long at all, the instructions are great! I will make again and size up. fast delivery and well packaged I will look too you again x

    Great little shop!

    I ordered some patterns and fabric a few days apart from each other. Both arrived super quickly - only a few days! The patterns were exactly as shown and a lot of their patterns have extended sizes (HURRAY!). The fabric was high quality and the design very rich and unique.

    So happy with service and quality. Has been marked as a new favorite site.
