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.

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.
