meticulously designed PDF sewing patterns for elevated basics.
halfmoon ATELIER sewing patterns are meticulously designed for YOU – the modern sewist – so that you can create your own capsule wardrobe with elevated basics that fit the perfect measurements of your beautiful body. I personally design and draft each and every pattern, which are then tested by a small group of loyal, critical testers to ensure the highest level of quality.
Sharing the gift of sewing and making in community brings me so much joy, so I also teach sewing and host extraordinary garment sewing retreats.
I made this pattern using a Tencel jersey, which it turns out is one of the only jerseys that doesn't curl! So I improvised and folder the neckline inwards 1cm instead of outwards and added a small hem round the neck. I'm happy with the result. The only thing, the bottom bit sits a little tight on my hips. I used a very stretchy fabric and followed sizing guide: I'd size this up a little next time. Generally very happy. Will likely use the pattern again at some point.
I’ve made the woven version 3 times and plan more.
The pattern is simple, well-explained and easy to follow. And it’s lovely to wear.
I’m new at sewing and have really enjoyed learning how to sew these panties. The instructions are very thorough, which I really appreciate as a beginner. I finished sewing my third pair a couple days ago and could not be happier with how perfectly they fit! Excited to try a few other Halfmoon Atelier patterns I picked up!
i have this top in several colors and love the way it fits. The patterns by halfmoon Atelier are so unique. Can't wait to see what's new!
These jeans are not only the classic style I've been looking for, but they fit me with only minor pattern alterations. All details are authentic jeans features and are well explained in the instructions.
Nice tee pattern and a good intro to .pdf patterns and Halfmoon Atelier. I like to sew something simple and not expensive when trying a new-to-me indie pattern company. This was a positive experience.
I have tried making and not loved several other pairs of jeans... But the 101 jeans are a dream!
I love the fit of these jeans! I was hesitant to purchase because lower rise jeans are not what I gravitate towards. I typically have gaping in the lower back area with other jeans. Not these! The curve of the back yoke and waistband contoured to my backside perfectly ~ even when I squat! I have a curvy hourglass figure and thanks to pandemic pounds am quite a bit heavier than I prefer to be. I sewed the size 8 and had to make no adjustments at all from my muslin. I will definitely be making these again!!
halfmoon 101 JEANS | PDF sewing pattern
Extremely quick service and quick response to my inquiry. Great company to buy patterns from. Really easy to follow insteuctions!!
I just completed my first pair of 101 Jeans and they turned out better than I could have ever expected on my first try. The instructions are so good and clear. The fit is what I have been looking for for a long time. I’ll be making many more 101 Jeans.
All jeans require fitting. But these 101 are so beautifully drafted that my adjustments were very minimal. Starting with very comprehensive sizing information, to super thorough sewing instruction with great illustrations I just can’t say enough about the thought put into this pattern. I’ve sewn dozens of jeans & pants and these are hands down the best drafted pattern available. The rise is lower than most everything else right now, so consider that going in. I was welcoming it, but you can easily increase it which if I remember she also gives guidance on. Highly recommend!
Working on my second pair of these jeans! I’m over the moon about the fit. Instructions are all incredibly clear as well. Go to pant for sure.
Cause not able to buy beautiful denim.....
Sorry.... I’ll get to you when my jeans are done
I’ve tried a couple of jeans patterns before and I must say these are the best.
I didn’t have to do any fit adjustment.
Drawings and instructions are neat.
Very happy with this pattern!
A great pattern, easy to follow and I also learn a lot of new skills :) I am now cutting my second Well´s Bay bikini and don´t plan for any changes. Definitely recommend this pattern to others out there looking for a classic and versatile bikini. THANKS !!
