The 6 multi-sized paper patterns include a shift dress and maxi skirt, simple jacket, fishtail skirt, jersey top and trousers enabling you to create your own mix & match capsule wardrobe.

Written by a fashion industry professional and qualified teacher who has been teaching people to sew for 7 years, you will be guided through each project step-by-step and be making your own new wardrobe of perfectly fitting clothes in no time.
NOTE: The patterns are printed full-scale in 5 sizes which cover the following range: bust 84-101cm (33-40"), waist 68-85cm (27-33.5"), hips 92-109cm (36-43"). Three of the patterns are for stretch fabrics so aren't very fitted, the other three patterns are for woven fabrics and two of them are fairly fitted.
