We’ve been soooo excited to share two new additions to our UK 16-34 (US 12-30 / EUR 44-62) size band, and here they are – it’s Billie and Jaimie.
The Billie sweatshirt and dress will steal your heart with the gorgeous balloon sleeves and cutaway pockets on the dress, while the Jaimie pyjama bottoms and shorts will make bedtime your favourite event of the day. Jaimie is an ideal project for newbie stitchers and Billie is a great introduction to sewing with knit fabrics. They will get you confident with sewing your own handmade wardrobe!
Billie and Jaimie make a dreamy (and comfy) loungewear set when worn together, don’t you think? So, we are giving you 20% off when you buy both the Billie and Jaimie PDF patterns in the UK 16-34 size range* until Sunday 16th May 2021 midnight BST. There is no discount code required, just add both patterns to your cart, checkout and the price will drop – woohoo!
Cool, casual and modern, Billie is an ultra-comfy sweatshirt or sweater dress that you can whip up in an afternoon. It has a relaxed shape, crew neckline and classic trim details. Keep it effortless with cuffed, straight sleeves, or add some drama with on-trend balloon sleeves and deep cuffs.
Choose between top length which sits on the high hip, or mini dress which finishes 10cm (4in) above the knee with gorgeous cutaway pockets.
The Billie UK 16-34 pattern has been designed on our new block and the main differences in fit give a bit more room in the bust, tummy and bicep areas.
You can purchase the UK 16-34 Billie as a PDF sewing pattern. You can either print it at home on A4 or Letter size paper and stick the sheets together, or send the A0 version to a copyshop or pattern printer to print full scale.
Lounge in style in your me-made pyjama bottoms or shorts. With simple construction, Jaimie is an ideal first sewing project for newbies or a quick, satisfying make for existing stitch addicts.
Choose between full-length pyjama bottoms or cute boyfriend shorts, with optional drawstring detail. The low-rise, elasticated waist and relaxed-fit leg make these PJs oh so comfy to wear.
Jaimie has a free step-by-step video tutorial on our YouTube channel if you need a little extra help making them. You’ll never want to get dressed when you’re wearing your Jaimie jammies!
