    Sulis Hat (Printed Pattern)

    $25.00

    Design
    The Sulis Hat (Pattern #005) is named for an ancient Celtic goddess of the sun, who was thought to reside by the thermal spring in Bath. This is Pattern Fantastique's offering for those who wish to embody a goddess lounging by the water, or in the backyard with a paddling pool.
    The Sulis Hat has serious sun protection in mind but a shape only worthy of the divine. With an offset brim which is deeper at the front and shorter at the back and a crafted form-fitting crown for a strong silhouette, the Sulis is reminiscent of 70’s era YSL fashion.
    There are optional ties for when a blustery air god swings by and crown trim for a little added finish. The Sulis remains soft and pliable so that it can be stashed in a beach bag or pressed into crisp perfection for special occasions. 

    Fabric
    Outer fabric:
    Denim or canvas Non-stretch.
    The weight of an outerwear garment like a jacket or traditional jeans without any stretch.
    Lining:
    Lightweight cotton or linen.

    Small      = 55 - 56 cm • 21⅝" - 22"
    Medium  = 57 - 58 cm • 22½" - 23"
    Large      = 59 - 60 cm • 23 ¼"- 23 ⅝"


    Skill Level
    Intermediate.
    Comes with highly detailed instructions.
    For those who have made the Lucent Visor, the Sulis Hat is simpler to construct.

    Notions
    •Matching thread.

    •Optional cord to use instead of self-made rouleau.
    •Heavyweight needles.

    Calyx Smock (Printed Pattern)

    $32.00

    Design
    The Calyx Smock (Pattern #104) is named after a part of the flower where petals and fruit form.
    Finely balanced between the decorative and utilitarian, the idea for this smock emerged from the memory of my mother’s hairdressing apron she wore in the late 70's combined with the handmade gathered smock she dressed me in at the same time.

    Fabric
    The Calyx Smock is suitable for many woven fabrics.
    From fine sheer light-weight silks for a full floaty romance to mid-weight denim paired with a Glacial Skivvy when winter layering is needed.
    DO NOT USE fabrics too thick to bind after gathering ie thick denim, jumbo cord, and coat weight fabrics.

    Design 

    The Equinox Tee (Pattern #204) 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 neck band options;
    Narrow & Crew.
    Note that a Rib Knit contrast is required for the Crew option.

    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.

    Fit

    Working with Merino knits to develop this pattern the tightness has been adjusted on different areas of the body to create a neat fit around the armhole and shoulder without unessesary cling throughout the lower arm or body. A pure cotton will produce a softer shape for an effortless look.

    Pattern Fantastique Travels

    Pattern Fantastique began in the inner city suburb of Collingwood then 12 months ago we tree changed to outer eastern bush/burbs for an experimental year with trees and space. It has been truly lovely out here despite sometimes a bit too burby for the adults in the house. Now we are about to set out on a new adventure, slightly larger in scale. We are moving to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam! Suburbia bedroom streetscape, Saigon map & views from 'The Deck' district 2 Why?Well, Mr Fantastique works for an NGO (Non-Government Organisation) They deal with health-related issues around the equator. The program is relocating and we have been invited for the ride.Street Canopy District 2   So what about Pattern Fantastique?Well, it’s primarily a digital business.

  • How to add "that" ruffle to the Glacial neck seam

    Posted: Aug 14 2017

    It's deep winter. The light is low and the internal struggles may be knocking at your door. But I have a weapon against the winter SAD's - STAY WARM and RUFFLE UP.   The Glacial is an excellent clean base to add a ruffle without competition from any 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 the 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 left hand side and the neck was eased on...

  • How to make a ruffle from scratch

    Ruffle Making

    It's a pretty clean state of affairs here at Pattern Fantastique HQ.  Minimalism to the max so to speak.But every now and then some well-placed glamour is required, some extra texture, an extremely feminine feature enough to flood the pleasure centres. Can you hear a well placed ruffle calling your name? See below for a comprehensive tutorial on how to make a ruffle. Or click here to view a tutorial on how to insert your ruffle in the Glacial Skivvy. PlacementThere are two key differences in the ruffle placement to consider.Is the ruffle: Continuous?  e.g. running the circumference of a hem.  or Inserted?  e.g. with a start and finish. On the edge of a collar that has an opening, over a shoulder but not under the arm or, as featured in our Glacial Tee example, down a neckline and most of the shoulder seam.  Ruffle density and length  The issue most likely to occur with ruffle...

  • Tee-shirt construction

    Posted: Jun 02 2017

    This tee-shirt tutorial is the basis for a series of tee-shirt patterns that Pattern Fantastique will continue to release.  The latest Glacial Tee comes with a multi-sized pattern & cutting sheet. The sewing instructions comprise of this screen-based tutorial, with various links to some of our other knit sewing instructions so you can smash out all your tee-shirt needs. Fabric preparationKnits 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 and 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...

  • Knit Neck Bands

    Posted: Apr 18 2017

    Knit neck band tutorial

    This is my favourite go-to method of finishing a knit neckband. You can use it as a speedier alternative to binding. And it can even be added to a woven body. Firstly, what kind of knits?   Fibre content: I alway prefer to use "natural" fibres, wool, cotton and silk. Or halfway fibres like viscose, modal, cupro and rayon (these fabrics are vegetable-based but very processed.) Petroleum-based fabrics like nylon and polyester do not always like to play by the rules - they generally want to return to their original shape and can be difficult to work with. Lycra blends are do-able but with high levels of lycra (more than 5%) the fabric will want to retract which will work against what you are trying to achieve. Smaller amounts of lycra (especially in very light fibres with little natural memory) will balance out the texture and give support to your neck band. Fabric knit structure: Plain knit jersey is great...
