Skill level: beginner (basic hand and machine sewing skills recommended)
Full-sized pattern pieces/templates
Detailed step-by-step instructions with color photographs
9 pages of pdf files.
You can adjust the pattern to fit a size that you want, by simply modifying the templates (enlarge or reduce them). However, the center body should not be reduced by more than a third, as it will be difficult to make if you do.
Explore your creativity, and experiment with the fabric that you already have, to create something special for you and for the ones you love. As always, the fact that you have hand made them, gives them the extra charm that everyone will find simply irresistible. Have fun sewing!
