We are officially kicking off the P4P Summer of Wovens today with the re-release of the Everyday Elegance!
Before we get started: If you already own a copy of the original Everyday Elegance, you will NOT need to re-purchase to get the updates. If you bought here (PatternsforPirates.com) or on the Craftsy store, you will simply need to sign into your account and re-download the file. If your purchase was via Etsy, email firstname.lastname@example.org (WITH PROOF OF PURCHASE) and you will get an updated file. It’s as easy as that, we promise!
As far as woven tops go, this is a great one to use if you’re new to the woven apparel scene. The Everyday Elegance is a loose top with a v-neckline, rounded collar, back yoke and back pleats. We decided to update this oldie-but-goodie because we wanted this pattern to match with the rest of the items found at Patterns for Pirates. So we’ve extended the sizing out to our full range (XXS – Plus 3X) and have added a ton of new options!
The Everyday Elegance now features two hemlines (tunic and dress length), three sleeve lengths (short, 3/4 and long), two neckline finishes (collar and bias binding), a back yoke with pleats, and an optional belt.
Along with the pattern changes, we updated our formatting. The pdfs now include our layers feature and can be found in letter, A4 and A0 sizes!
