    Design 

    The Equinox is a reinvention of a classic 60’s tee. Pair with your fave jeans whilst channelling today’s Jane Birkin. 

    The neckline is widened to a subtle boat neck leading into a dropped shoulder with bold, round sleeve caps. Skimming over the bust and dropping straight to high hip with no waist shaping. A slightly cropped body length with subtle curved hem line finishing just below the high hip.

    The two sleeve options include the classic cap with a generous hem width, or a very cute bell flare, landing at bracelet length. Giving an easy to wear basic a unique edge. This will be high rotation, wardrobe favourite.  

    This is second style for a series of patterns with printless instructions. The blog hosts a set of linked, photo rich, instructions on how to make a Tee-Shirt from 'What stitch to choose' to 'Inserting a knit neck band'. Not only do we get to save paper but this series all come at a lower price point.  Start with Tee-Shirt Construction.

    Two sleeve lengths;
    Cap & Bracelet.


    One body length;
    High Hip - The pattern finished length is on the pattern. If your high hip is lower or higher alteration is very simple.

    Fabric Recommendations.

    The Equinox tee suits basic cotton knits, interlock, "rugby knit", merino knit, fleece and french terry are all suitable.

    Keep Lycra / Elastane to a minimum 5% or less. Too much stretch makes for a stiff neck band. 

    Ponti weights or viscose, silk, linen super drapey knits aren't suited for this pattern.

    • Denim Cotton and lycra 285 cm x 139 cm (before shrinkage) enough for a Midi length Celestial Dress.
    • Celestial Printed Pattern and Celestial Hack PDF download. 
    • Top stitch needles x 5 - Schmetz brand 
    • Top Stitching Thread - Amman Saba brand; 500 mt  
    • Stay tape stitched  - 5 mts x 12 mm

    Celestial Denim Makers Kit

    Denim;

    The colour is a deep indigo shade with fresh white base shade. The white streaking is classic and fine giving the denim a lovely depth that will fade beautifully over time. The thread count is high and the weave tight, resulting in a smooth clean, finish with no fluffy textured threads.  

    The weight is approximately 300 gsm or 9 oz. per square yard.  Which means it’s a lighter denim with a crisp finish the texture will soften over time.  It is great weight for transitional seasons wear solo for warmer days and layer up with a Glacial Skivvy for the cooler months. 
    The Denim was sourced as a designer end. This was produced for a large Australian company and the over run fabric was wholesaled.  Gleaning post-industrial fabric is one way of minimising unessesary fabric production and getting to share the joy of finding such a lovely quality denim.

    Thread;
    Amman Saba, brand thread is a German brand, often used in denim manufacturing in Australia. It is a high quality thread and come in various topstitching weights to suit different denims. This weight is slightly less chunky than what is available in retail stores and suits this fine denim. You can use it both in your bobbin and needle for seaming and all topstitching. I haven't seen this brand available at retail store in Australia.

    Top stitching needles;
    Schmetz, brand needles are heavy weight and shaped at the point and eye for the best thread flow when sewing with a thicker thread.  You can used them for seaming and topstitching.  

    Stay Tape;
    This product is one on my most used sewing notions - It is a lighter weight replacement for block fusing with the additional benefit of a the stitched line giving it an un-stretchable quality.   A superior replacement to stay stitching.  This is excellent for fixing any curved shapes, shoulder/ back neck line in tee shirts or any fabric incline to growing.  Apply to your neck line facing and empire line seam on dress to stop excess stretching. You will receive more than you need for one Celestial Dress.

      Design 

      The Equinox is a reinvention of a classic 60’s tee. Pair with your fave jeans whilst channelling today’s Jane Birkin. 

      The neckline is widened to a subtle boat neck leading into a dropped shoulder with bold, round sleeve caps. Skimming over the bust and dropping straight to high hip with no waist shaping. A slightly cropped body length with subtle curved hem line finishing just below the high hip.

      The two sleeve options include the classic cap with a generous hem width, or a very cute bell flare, landing at bracelet length. Giving an easy to wear basic a unique edge. This will be high rotation, wardrobe favourite.  

      This is second style for a series of patterns with printless instructions. The blog hosts a set of linked, photo rich, instructions on how to make a Tee-Shirt from 'What stitch to choose' to 'Inserting a knit neck band'. Not only do we get to save paper but this series all come at a lower price point.  Start with Tee-Shirt Construction.

      Fit


      Two neck band options;
      Narrow & Crew.
      Note that a Rib Knit contrast is required for the Crew option.


      Two sleeve lengths;
      Cap & Bracelet.


      One body length;
      High Hip - The pattern finished length is on the pattern. If your high hip is lower or higher alteration is very simple.

      The Equinox tee suits basic cotton knits, interlock, "rugby knit", merino knit, fleece and french terry are all suitable.

      Keep Lycra / Elastane to a minimum 5% or less. Too much stretch makes for a stiff neck band.

    • How to add that Ruffle in the Glacial Neck seam

      Posted: Aug 14 2017

      The Glacial Ruffle.  So it is deep winter and the light is low and the internal struggle might be knocking at the door. I have a weapon against the winters SAD's -  Stay warm and Ruffle up.   The Glacial is an excellent clean base to add a ruffle with out competition of other design features. Have a look at the blog post on Ruffle making to learn more about what ruffle type could work for your fabric. For this Ruffle Glacial I was hoping to do a single layer ruffle with a raw rolled edge, but this fabric was unrolling and It looked a bit too raw. So I went for a folded ruffle and the bulk wasn't a problem. To get the ruffle down the side of the skivvy I had to alter my usual Knit Neck Band Insertion method. The key differences are  firstly, the CB Skivvy seam went to the wearers...

      It's pretty clean state of affairs here at Pattern Fantastique HQ.  Minimalism to the max but every now an then some well placed glamour is required, some extra texture, an extremely feminine feature enough to flood the pleasure centres...  Hear a well placed ruffle calling your name? This is the tutorial on how to make a ruffle. Here is also a tutorial on how to insert one in the Glacial Skivvy.  Placement The two key differences in placement to consider; Is the ruffle? Continuous  e.g. Running the circumference of a hem. or Inserted   With a start and finish. On the edge of a collar that has an opening, over a shoulder but not under the arm or in our Glacial example down an neckline and most of the shoulder seam.  Ruffle Density and Length  The issue most likely to occur with ruffle construction is the additional bulk added to a seam warping the...

Fabric preparation. Knits are the one fabric type I don't pre-wash. This is to avoid warping which can make cutting a pesky task.  I do expect shrinkage to happen after washing a finished garment, this mostly effects the length. The stretch should maintain fit across the body.  If you are concerned about lengths and shrinkage I suggest lengthening garments by  2.5 cm or 3-5% of what you would like your finished length to be.  If you have the space lay your fabric flat when cutting knits as opposed to folded this will give you better scope to find...

    • Knit Neck Band Tutorial.

      Knit neck band tutorial

      My favourite go to method of finishing a knit Neck Band. This can be added to a woven body as just the Neck Band needs to be a knit to finish a neck or armhole. You can use it as a speedier alternative to binding. Firstly what kind of knits?   Fibre Content: I alway prefer "natural" fibres, Wool, Cotton and Silk or half way fibres like Viscose, Modal, Cupro and Rayon. These fabrics are Vegetable based but very processed.Petroleum based fabrics do not always like to play by the rules they generally want to return their original shape and can be difficult to work with. Nylon, polyester etc. Lycra blends are do-able but with high levels of lycra more than 5% the fabric will want to retract. This will work against what we are trying to achieve. Smaller amounts of Lycra,  especially in very light fibres, with little natural memory, will balance out...

    • Shearling Genoa

      Posted: Oct 10 2016

      Genoa Tote sewing pattern, Shearling re-fashioned patchwork.

      It’s suppose to be spring here and it has been raining and freezing ridiculousness. But maybe I have made the best winter bag ever which makes up for a vitamin D deficiency, right? Every day of shivery chill I’ll be able to relish this fluffy being. Here’s my latest Genoa. This bag is an invitation for experimentation. It’s already easy to make and there’s no fitting required.  It all began when I found a shearling jacket at my new favourite op shop on the discount rack out the front. This op shop is community run and the prices can be a bit random to say the least, it really depends on which volunteer has done the tags that week. I could see this gem had been under valued. The jacket was 90’s shearling sport coat, suede outer, lamb fur inner. Best gunmetal grey ever. The styling had some minimal norm core...
