BARBARA

9,9015,00

I am Barbara, a twist on the classic shirt: I have classic shirt sleeves and collar, cuffs with a slit opening, a back yoke and a center-back pleat. My front buttons are hidden under a placket and I have a wide cut. I can also be made as a dress.
My details make me very original: my front and/or back flounces are set in the sleeves. I have three different flounce variations with or without godets for a truly unique style.

You will find a sew along tutorial for Barbara on the blog.

Description

THE COLLAB

I AM Barbara shirt and dress sewing pattern in collaboration with @bee_made and I AM Patterns
  • Save

I AM Barbara, both “in vogue” and timeless but always elegant. My delicate character allied to all the details make me unique. I am the perfect pattern to sew indefinitely for any occasion.

We are very excited to have been able to design this pattern with Barbara (alias @bee_made on Instagram). Long before Instagram existed, we followed her adventures on her blog and she even was the first person we offered to do a collaboration with.
The sewing pattern we’ve created together is at the crossing road of both our universes. To know more about the collaboration, please head to the blog.

FORMATS

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 – 46 sheets

A3 – print at work (we won’t say anything) – 19 sheets

A0 file (aka: copyshop, printshop, wide files) – print at a copy shop – 3 sheets

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

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