A New PDF Pattern & Some Changes to MIY Collection Sewing Patterns

My MIY Collection shrug pattern is now available as a PDF instant download from my shop.

A perfect summer sew – quick, a good stash buster if you make contrasting bands, it’s just enough to keep the chill off your shoulders and folds down small enough to stick in your bag!

I know PDF patterns aren’t for everyone (you can buy a print version of the Brightside here), but with this one I’ve introduced a few changes to my patterns:

  • you’ll notice it has a name – the Brightside Shrug
  • it uses a new size labelling system which refers directly to body measurements rather than some oblique numbering system
  • as well as a tiled version of the pattern to print onto A4 sheets and tape together at home, a full size untiled version is included which can be printed at professional copy shops.

I will be gradually making these changes to all my existing and new patterns and you can read about why I decided to do it here.

I’d love to know what you think?
