Paper Theory’s sewing patterns are printed onto premium 27gsm card which makes them luxurious and substantial to hold, but more importantly they will have longevity and not disintegrate with the wear and tear of use. The pattern is printed onto 60gsm paper and each style comes with a full step by step, instruction booklet printed onto 120gsm paper.
This pattern was made and printed in England on FSC certified card and paper by a printer who is registered with the Woodland Trust.
You will learn to make your own bias binding and apply it to the neckline. The armholes are square and sewing right angles may be a new technique for some beginner sewists – however there is a video on the Paper Theory blog to guide those who are unfamiliar with this technique.
The pattern was designed with a woven fabric like Linen or Cotton in mind, and it would work equally well in something light and drapey like a Crepe de Chine or Silk.
The pattern is available in sizes 6-28. All sizes are included with your purchase.
