HELIOS

I Am Hélios, a sewing pattern with seven versions. With me you can make an entire summer wardrobe.

I feature a top with adjustable straps, a straight neckline, bust darts and a slightly a-line cut.

I can also be sewn as shorts, a skirt and trousers. These three versions have the same elasticated waistband with a drawstring. My skirt is a full circle skirt with Italian pockets. My shorts length is mid-thigh and also features Italian pockets. As for my trousers, they open elegantly at the front of the leg as you walk, and are finished with a rounded shape at the hem.

The bottoms can also be sewn to the top to create three additional garments: a playsuit, a dress and a jumpsuit. Four very simple versions, perfect for beginners and three combinations for a synonymously chic, casual and timeless style.

PDF PATTERN

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The different pieces don’t overlap with each other. Once printed and assembled, simply cut the pattern at your size and start sewing.

The folder contains the digital sewing pattern in layered A4, US Letter, A3 and A0 formats along with two files for projection. To accompany, there is a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

Digital pattern formats:

A4 and US Letter – print at home – Top: 12 sheets; Skirt: 28 sheets; Shorts: 15 sheets; Trousers: 28 sheets. For the number of pages of the jumpsuits and the dress, add the number of pages of the top and the bottom.

A3 – print at work (we won’t say anything) – Top: 5 sheets; Skirt: 12 sheets; Shorts: 6 sheets; Trousers: 12 sheets. For the number of pages of the jumpsuits and the dress, add the number of pages of the top and the bottom.

A0 file (aka: copyshop, printshop, wide files) – print at a copy shop – 4 sheets

Projection – 1 file with pattern pieces on white background and 1 file with pattern pieces on fuchsia background. Both files are layered.

The .zip file will be emailed to you upon payment and you will also be able to access the file anytime on your iampatterns.fr account.

You will need a computer to open the .zip file.

Size 34 to 52. See sizing guide below.

PAPER PATTERN

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the pdf version as pieces do not overlap with each other.

Size 36 to 46. See sizing guide below.

THE PATTERN

VERSIONS

1 top + 3 bottoms = 7 garments – We love this kind of math!
On top of being able to sew the top and bottoms as separates, you can combine them to make a playsuit, a jumpsuit and a dress. With this pattern you will be able to sew an entire summer wardrobe.

A: Top; B: Skirt; C: Shorts; D: Trousers; E: Dress; F: Playsuit; G: Jumpsuit

For versions E, F & G, we have broken down the yardages for the bodice and for the bottom of the garment. Calculate the total yardage for versions E, F & G by adding the fabric required for the bodice and the bottom of the garment in your size.

It isn’t possible to use a 55″ (140cm) wide fabric for a full circle skirt in sizes 46 to 52. Therefore, the skirt for those sizes features a lovely volume but isn’t a full circle skirt.
