Kind words from our cool customers
"I have been sewing with Pattern Fantastique patterns since their beginnings and cannot get enough! They hit that sweet spot where fashion meets home-sewing; think impeccable drafting meets interesting design lines and styles that take queues from RTW without being a slave to the trends. You end up with a garment that feels wearable for the everyday but still unique."
The Terra Pant pattern is my fave sewing pattern of all time. The design is straight out of my dreams! I had never made pants before but the instructions (that come with great illustrations) are so good that I have now made 3 pairs, and I love them all.

"I’ve been a Pattern Fantastique customer from the beginning. The drafting is always spot on and the styles move between architectural masterpieces and feminine chic. I always eagerly await the next pattern release."
"In addition to being modern and fashionable, PF patterns always teach me something new: a sewing tip, a finishing technique - something that leaves me with a good looking garment and an enjoyable experience."
"In my eyes the Falda Jacket is a masterpiece of both design and execution. It’s pattern pieces are very unique but they all slot together perfectly. The construction involves lots of steps but the instructions are clear and it’s one of the most rewarding and satisfying items of clothing I’ve ever made. My denim Falda gets loads of wear."
Excellent drafting is key to these patterns and sewing them up unfolds in a logical step by step process so they're kind of intellectually interesting but effortless. Incredibly clever draping, turning basics into something entirely original, with a lovely clean line and balance so they hang just right. Not your ordinary pattern company!

Features of the FALDA JACKET
The FALDA JACKET was developed using a combination of draping and flat pattern making. A nod to the chanel tweed and the sensibility of a bomber jacket with some victorian sleeve volume all in good humour.
With plenty of room to layer up underneath and an easy-to-wear everyday piece. You will feel pretty special wearing this even on the greyist of days.
Terra Pant review
- From the Fabric Store blog (see full post here)
"The Terra Pant has some seriously cool suiting vibes! The pattern offers two versions – a high waisted option and a mid-rise waist option. We picked the high waist for Ella and love the fit! The deep front tucks and side pockets give the pant its unique sculptural volume, which is particularly notable when made up in a sturdy fabric like corduroy. Ella is 172cm tall and is wearing a size 8 which fits her perfectly. We added 8cm to the leg hem and choose patch pockets for the back, which balance the high waist perfectly! Pattern Fantastique have also provided welt pockets for the back, for a more minimal finish if required. They recommend this pattern would suit an Intermediate – Advanced sewist, which we would agree with as you’ll need to sew two different pocket styles, a waistband as well as a zip fly front. The instructions are well thought out and we would suggest reading them through before beginning!"
