NEW

Eight is a relaxed-fit, drapey, sleeveless tee with a round neck and shoulder pads. That’s right, shoulder pads – an eighties trend with a fresh twist. We’ve added structure to the shoulder to create a powerful, but soft silhouette as a subtle nod to the eighties. But don’t worry, there’s no need to be searching the shops for ready-made shoulder pads, where’s the fun in that? For this pattern, you get to make the shoulder pads yourself, wooo hooo!!!

Never thought you’d be wearing shoulder pads again (or ever)? Well, don’t knock it till you try it. You’ll be surprised at how great the Eight Tee will look on you and what’s more how unbelievably fierce you will feel. But don’t worry, if you really don’t want to go down that road, just leave the shoulder pads out, it may not be as powerful but it will still be beautiful.

Team your Eight Tee with a pair of jeans and trainers or smart trousers and heels and you’re good to go.

 

Fabric recommendations

Single jersey:

  • cotton or cotton/elastane
  • bamboo or bamboo/elastane
  • viscose or viscose/elastane
  • modal jersey
  • Tencel jersey

Eight Tee looks particularly gorgeous made in fabric with a good drape. We recommend bamboo jersey from Sister Mintaka.

You should be able to stretch your fabric by a minimum of 20% and it should snap back to its original size after stretching.

No butts about it, when it comes to underwear, comfort is key. Swap your cheeky, wedgie-inducing knickers for a pair of practical, old-school, full bum coverage, grandma-approved pants.

Pair your shorties with our close-fitting, classic camisole – the everyday, year-round, versatile essential. Wear on its own in the warm weather or as a layer beneath your Hug Hoodie during the colder months.

Our Go Shorties & Cami comes packed with features, so many that we had to divide the pattern into 2 views.

VIEW A SHORTIES sit at the top hip, they feature fold over elastic for the leg and waist finishing. They have 2 gusset options, one that fully encloses the gusset seams on the inside and one where no seam is visible from the front.

VIEW A CAMI features fold over elastic for the straps and neck binding. And the option of adjustable straps.

Most suitable for: underwear, sleepwear…

VIEW B SHORTIES sit at the top hip, they feature colour blocking, leg bands and an enclosed elastic waistband or a wide exposed elastic waistband option.

VIEW B CAMI features colour-blocking and the neckline and straps are finished using self-fabric. It has the option to add a built-in bra and the option for adjustable straps.

Most suitable for: loungewear, swimwear, beachwear, sportswear, underwear, sleepwear…

 

Fabric recommendations

  • Viscose or cotton jersey with at least 5% elastane

  • Stretch lace

  • Mesh

Consider how your fabric is going to feel against your skin. For the gusset of the shorties we recommend 100% cotton for comfort and ventilation.

The extremely versatile Rest Vest is a gorgeous, cleverly constructed, easy to wear garment with angled seamlines that lends itself to colour-blocking. The unique back detail flatters the shoulders and creates a statement silhouette.

Can be worn just as easily for sweaty workouts as it can for nights out with friends, chilling at the beach or for bed with our indispensable Go Shorties.

The Rest Vest is available in two fits:

RELAXED FIT
Unlike the close-fit Rest Vest, the relaxed-fit Rest Vest flows at the hips.

CLOSE FIT
A noticeably narrower cut than our relaxed-fit Rest Vest, to ensure nothing gets in the way when you workout. The additional panels at the sides give you the opportunity to use up small left-over pieces of fabric.

 

Fabric recommendations

  • Light to medium weight jersey, something with a bit of drape works well like a viscose/elastane or a technical sportswear jersey.
  • A poly/cotton or 100% cotton single jersey will be fine, as long as it’s a lighter weight so it has a bit of drape.

You should be able to stretch the fabric by a minimum of 20% and it should snap back to its original size after stretching.

ALSO AVAILABLE IN TEEN SIZES

Hang up your puffa coat, spring has arrived, time to prepare for the unpredictable bouts of sun, rain, wind and everything in between. Enter GLIDE, the jacket that merges the classic with the contemporary to create a sleek statement piece. Detailed with striking cut-outs at the hem and hidden zip pockets in the front diagonal seams.

GLIDE is a relaxed fit, designed to sit comfortably over clothes. Smart enough to wear with tailored trousers and perfect for snazzing up a jeans and T-shirt combo.

Give it a sporty vibe and wear with your workout gear, or try a bold colour-blocked version that commands all eyes on you.

Features a front zip closure, flat collar or hood, drop shoulders, interior pocket, optional elasticated cuffs and lining – of course!

 

Fabric recommendation

Main Fabric

Medium weight fabric works well, cotton canvas, twill, linen, corduroy, wool, denim… pretty much anything would look fabulous. Avoid fabrics that are particularly thick or your seams may end up too bulky. Hardshell looks amazing for a sporty Glide Jacket. Fabrics with stretch, like scuba or a quilted knit are doable but may be a tad more tricky to sew.

Lining Fabric

Lightweight cotton or polycotton.

An undeniably sleek version of the humble t-shirt, with capped sleeves and a flattering semi-loose fit that sits at ease on your body.

Ideal for every day, it’s the t-shirt that promises to go with everything. The unexpected centre back strip (optional) adds distinction and gives this feminine t-shirt it’s saucy name.

Make with light to medium weight viscose or viscose/elastane for a beautiful, soft drape. In cooler weather, use French terry or a true knit and layer over a long sleeve fitted top.

Quick and easy to sew, we suggest you make at least two, so you have one to wear, whilst the other is in the wash.

 

Make this style in UK size 6 to 20.
