In the mood for some instant gratification?

For folks who enjoy printing patterns at home, we updated 3 of our most popular patterns to include digital versions.

We’ve been going through the whole collection and adding digital versions to some of our older patterns that were previously only available in print. Eventually you’ll have a choice on every pattern:

  • Buy the printed version
  • Download the PDF version to print and assemble at home
  • Download the wide format version and have it printed at a copy shop.


Violet is a great pattern for Fall. The collar detail looks so cute peaking out from sweaters. I also really like the way it works with pinafore style dresses.

Clover is one of our bestsellers. With clean lines and a close fit, they offer coverage for cool weather without adding a lot of bulk.

Sencha has always been a favorite. It looks great tucked into a pencil skirt with cozy tights, or layered with pants and a cardigan that showcases the keyhole neckline.

I love the buttons going down the back of sencha!


That’s great news. I hope the turn of Lady Grey will come soon.

Another one waiting for the Lady Gray here. Overseas shipping is a bit too much and customs often charges my international orders even when they’re not legally chargeable.


Is there any chance that Jade has a picture of that hair cut (from when she modeled the Sencha) worn straight? I take her pictures to the stylist every time I get a hair cut for the past 2 years, but they (even the same stylist) interpret it different every time.


Wonderful that you have all of these pattern purchasing options but please PLEASE do not get rid of the paper options. After so much time printing, trimming, cutting and taping, I’ve found it actually detracts significantly from my pleasure in making a pattern. If the only pattern available is a downloadable version, I will no longer buy it unless it is four pages or less (small clutch for example).

Thanks for doing the work you do! I’m a huge fan.


I have been secretly hoping that the clover would be released in PDF format. Woop woop!!
