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 email@example.com (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!

I love how absolutely diverse the testers have become lately and it’s even more apparent in this re-release. So many beautiful women!
Everyday Elegance was one of my first purchases from P4P and I haven’t sewn it yet, but with all the improvements and new features, I’m thinking to move it further up the to make list for August.
Most wovens are about 45″ wide but fabric requirements are listed based on 58″.
How about requirements based on 45″ fabric, please?
Nicole Lanzarotto says
Fabric requirements are based on 58″ as most apparel wovens are 58″. Woven fabric such as quilting cotton are 45″ and not a recommended fabric which is why we did not include fabric requirements for those.
Have you used Art Gallery Fabrics for garments? The weave structure of AGF cottons is different from other quilting cottons–which makes them lovely for garments. The colors and designs are on trend as well. These are 45″ wide, however. Please consider offering some kind of conversion formula or reference yardage chart for 45″ fabrics. Thanks!
