They are finally here – True Bias paper patterns. Paper patterns have been a long time coming. Yes, they were way more work than I ever anticipated, and took about twice as long, but I am so thrilled with the outcome.! Currently, I have four patterns in stock for paper. They are the Hudson pants, the Roscoe Blouse and Dress, the Lander Pants and Shorts, and the Lodo Dress. These can all be ordered in my shop here. The plan is to continue adding some of my older patterns as paper over the next year as I continue to print new patterns on paper as well.

Each pattern comes in a thick, rigid cardstock envelope with a photo printed on the front. The back of the envelope contains all of the information you might need, including the description, fabric recommendations, notions, size chart, and fabric requirements. I love how sturdy these envelopes feel. They stay nice and flat and protect your pattern and instructions.

Inside each envelope you will find an instruction booklet and pattern. Each pattern is printed on white tissue that you can either cut into or trace depending on your preference.

Please jump over to my shop if you would like to purchase a paper pattern. I am also doing wholesale, so check out your local store to see if they are carrying my patterns if you want it right away.

    Thank you so much for including the Hudson Pant in your initial paper pattern stock, Kelly! I’m hoping to make a permanent pattern from poster board when mine arrives, because I expect to make several Hudsons. The first thing I made from your website was your diy cocoon, using a purple wool summer-weight knit gauze from Mood Fabrics. I didn’t know about Mood until I discovered your website. Now I enjoy and indulge a bit of a Mood addiction, thanks to you, haha! I’m also a huge fan of merino jerseys. I didn’t print out the cocoon pattern, I just studied the image until I understood how it was constructed, then eyeballed my fabric cuts to make it so I didn’t have a back seam, and so that it fell as long as my fabric was wide, so thank you for that, too!
