Well it’s been a long time coming but I’ve finally added an additional size set to the Matilda Jane pattern, and one additional smaller size to the original set. That’s a total of 8 more sizes and the pattern is now available to fit 30-52″ busts. Now you too can make a version as fabulous as Juno’s.
I’ve emailed the update to everyone who has already purchased the pattern, so if you were waiting for the larger sizes you don’t need to purchase them separately. If you haven’t received the email, and I know a couple have bounced, but want the update send me details of your original purchase and I’ll email it to you. All purchasers of the pattern from now on will automatically receive a zip file containing both files. I’ve kept the two size sets as separate files mainly for clarity – a pattern with directions for 14 different sizes would get a bit confusing.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
