My Handmade Wardrobe Cosy Jersey Dress and Tunic + Extension Pack PDF Pattern
Imagine waking up and choosing a unique garment from a wardrobe full of your own creations. With My Handmade Wardrobe Patterns, you can create comfortable and stylish everyday essentials to get you excited about getting dressed every single day!
With the Cosy Jersey Tunic and Dress pattern you can wrap yourself up in stretchy handmade-ness - This dress is like a hug that keeps giving all day!
The Cosy Jersey Jumper Add-On Pattern is an extension pack for our most popular pattern from the MHW range. The pack includes pattern pieces and instructions to add-on cosy features to our most popular pattern. When combined with the original pattern, this extension pack can be used to add a shawl collar and internal pocket to the tunic and also to make a shorter jumper length version of the style.
Make the dress version in viscose jersey for a soft and slinky cover up smart enough for the office, comfy enough for after-work drinks/sofa veg-out! Or make the tunic length with sleeves in snuggly brushed-back sweat for weekend warmth
For ultimate comfort, pair with the Action Pack leggings!

It is vitally important, when sewing your own clothes, to take accurate measurements of your body, and not rely on the sizing you expect to buy on the high street. For this pattern we have opted to use sizing XS-XXL, which approximately covers UK sizes 8-24. Measure yourself first to choose the right size for you!
