The Thelma - Sewing Pattern - Merchant & Mills

4 units left

z
z

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

The pattern arrived promptly and in excellent condition. It promises to be an interesting project.

Home of the beautiful and unique

As a recovering fabric hoarder, the last thing I needed was to discover Maai Design store.
But it was love at first swipe.
An elegantly curated selection of fabric, easily searchable and complimented by a great selection of patterns.
I bought a black double cotton gauze I’d been searching for, a delicious green seersucker (very hard to find) and a longed for pattern from the Assembly Line. The indulgence came quickly and packaged beautifully.

Highly recommended - but slightly addictive.
Venture in at your peril!

Consistency

I’ve recently bought some beautiful double gauze for summer tops and dresses.
The quality of the fabrics are consistently high and the delivery reliable. One day my making might be too, it’s fun working towards that!
