The Thelma - Sewing Pattern - Merchant & Mills

5 items left

A traditional workwear boilersuit with a gentler feminine fit. Thelma is a wardrobe masterpiece, loose enough to fit all shapes and can be interpreted in many different types of cloths, so make it your own.

Thelma will take time to put together, but make it well and wear it absolutely everywhere. Skill level – experienced.

This is a multi-size paper pattern including sizes 6 – 18. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless stated otherwise and are included in the pattern.

Fabric Suggestions – medium weight wovens e.g. 5 – 8oz denims & linens . If you are an experienced sewer you could try tencel/linen, corduroy, more floppy linens, prints and checks.

Pattern Errata -Front leg (4) it says on the pattern piece ‘cut here for right side’ should say ‘left’. However the instructions are correct.

The tack on the under arm sleeve (at the cuff) the sizing is the wrong way round.

You will need: 18 x 14-18mm Buttons (only 16 buttons if you intend of just using one button at the cuff) 2 x Matching thread 70cm Interfacing

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.
