Here are the patterns I use to make my wardrobe. This post will continue to be updated.
Useful Tunics From A Dress Pattern
M6102 1 Hour Dress has been the base for numerous tunics and tops. Has set in sleeves which can be stressful!
Dress with darts
Long wool tunic
New Look 6133 was the base for my Choir Boy shirt.
And then of course there is this one! Mc Calls M6770 Misses’ Jacket, Bustle/Capelet, Skirt and Pants. I know what you are thinking but the pattern was in the sale and really cheap. Possibly there’s a reason for that but I can’t resist a bargain. I never intended to add the ruffles or the lace.
So far I have used it as a base for
Steam punk, cheap pattern
Ebay Woolen jacket

WHY CUT PLASTIC
About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items.
Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
