Mila

We really like to share these video tutorials with you as we know you might need some visual help or a little motivation to sew the Mila jumpsuit & dress pattern. As usual, we’ll cover all the steps to make the Mila pattern, this time focusing on View B, the dress version. But the construction is almost identical for the jumpsuit!

Have fun watching it and let us know if you have any questions…

ZOOM IN: MILA

I hadn’t offered a jumpsuit pattern yet because I wasn’t sure what cut I liked best. But after thinking about this « cocooning » collection, it was quite clear: wrap elements and ties.

MILA

As I like to propose versatile patterns, I thought about a second version for the jumpsuit. That’s how Mila was born. There is a jumpsuit view with V neckline, wrap-around ties, pleated trousers with tapered legs and back elastic waistband. And a dress view with the same elements and some changes: the front neckline is buttoned, there are ¾ length sleeves and a pencil skirt with front slit.

All the strength of the Mila pattern is in the wrap-around ties. They can be ties in the front or the back, accentuate the waist if you tie them tight or create a more casual look if you let them loose. If you know the « Pattern magic » book Tomoko Nakamichi, you’ll recognize the characteristics of the musubu knot. That’s how started this pattern: a knot at the waist to gather the fabric and highlight the waist.

Mila might look like a complex pattern but that’s not the case. If you are an intermediate seamstress or even a confident beginner, it will be perfect for you. Furthermore, we have prepared a video tutorial following the construction of the whole garment.

With its casual yet elegant look, I hope Mila will be able to seduce you.

Our new pattern collection is here!

It was time, we haven’t released any printed pattern since February ! We worked non-stop to show you our new pattern collection ! Here they are : Ayora, Mila, Diago and Morella.

I don’t usually give names to our collections, only to the patterns, but if I had to, this one would be called “cocooning”. I thought about it as mix between loungewear and streetwear. When temperatures start to fall, the only thing I want to do is roll myself in a blanket and drink a cup of tea. Well, this collection feels just like that to me : simple, comfortable and enveloping shapes, natural and soft fabrics, peaceful colours.

AYORA

quilted jacket ayora

The Ayora jacket is quilted, boxy and reversible. Perfect to be worn inside as a cardigan or outside when it’s starting to get cold.

MILA

mila jumpsuit dress

Mila is a double pattern : jumpsuit or dress. My favourite feature : the ties that are crossed and knotted in the front or back. The back waistband is elasticized. View A is sleeveless and with tapered cropped trousers. View B has ¾ sleeve length and a knee-length pencil skirt with front vent.

These two patterns are available as printed patterns as well as PDF (print-at-home and copyshop).

And to complete them, we have developped two PDF patterns.

DIAGO

diago blouse

Diago is our first beginner pattern. A simple blouse with nice finishing (French seams and facings). The boxy and cropped silhouette can be easily paired with high waisted garments (Morella, Romero or Botanic for example).

MORELLA

morella trousers skirt

And finally Morella : I couldn’t decide between the trousers and the skirt so I added both the pattern ! Cropped tapered trousers or midi A line skirt, the details are the same : elasticized waistband so it can be pulled on easily, flat front, deep pockets and the side seam moved to the back of the leg.

I really hope you’ll enjoy these new patterns !

– You can find the new patterns as a printed copy and/or PDF file on the shop.  –
– Now available from size 34 to 52! –
