FABRIC + NOTIONS

Fabric Type

Choose something in a woven fabric. For a Spring/Summer version choose a mid-heavy weight linen or cotton. For a winter version this works well in a light to mid weight wool coating. Is also lovely in a cotton corduroy.

Size One

Recommended width: 135-150 cm / 53 - 59 inches

Yardage required: 170cm / 67 inches ( approx 1.86 yards)

Notions: Requires 6 buttons approx 20-25mm wide.



THE METHOD

Zero waste pattern cutting is a bit like a puzzle. It is a method of pattern drafting where you utilise a length of fabric end to end by strategically planning your pattern pieces so that everything is used. This pattern is ‘PAPERLESS’ meaning that no printing of large pattern pieces is required. Instead of using full scale paper patterns, you draw your pattern pieces directly onto your fabric with the aid of a cutting plan and small templates. We love working with this method for 3 reasons:

1. More flexibility
This method allows for easy changes such as using different fabric widths and making simple fit and design changes yourself. Using patterns that fit into a zero waste square or rectangular block is a very efficient way to work. It means that it is easier to patchwork together remnants or use left over fabrics you already have lying around.

2. An easy way to learn to self draft your own patterns
Working this way will help you to start building a toolbox of skills, and you will learn an alternative method of self drafting your own sewing patterns, which are super easy for beginners to understand.

3. Less fabric and paper waste!
