This is a very clever pattern with numerous adaptations. The instructions are clear - but you need to keep check as there are so many potential options. For a top that looks quite complex, it is remarkably easy. Will be making again, for sure. Love it.

Neige sweatshirt

Fabulous pattern, well written and sizing is perfect.

I ordered quite a few samples as I wanted to be sure before investing in some quality fabric. They arrived really quickly, clearly labelled on a lovely swatch card. The samples are a good size - big enough to give you a sense of drape and texture etc. The only problem is I loved all 15 fabrics! Definitely worth it if you want to invest in some more quality and pricey fabrics. Having said that, I think the fabrics are really well represented in the pics online.


This pattern makes the usual basic winter sweat shirt look a lot more stylish, and I love the simple instructions, I am going to either make one with fleece, or french terry.

Lovely quality

I love this jersey, I previously ordered in black and made a cardi which is very comfy and not itchy which is usually a problem for me with fabric containing wool. I am probably going to make the same cardi again in this colour to go with my growing me made wardrobe.

Quality, quality, quality!

Wow, this fabric is a delight to feel, a delight to sew and a delight to wear. "Effie Pink" is not your insipid, girly pink, it has a strong yellow base and it is an interesting colour for those seeking a shade to wear with khaki or browns.


Lovely pattern easy to sew, will be making a few. Arrived quickly nicely packed

Great service

Prompt delivery, carefully packaged, faultless, highly recommended.

Very happy sewist

Fabulous pattern, great service. I’ll definitely be back

Great basic top pattern

I really enjoyed making this pattern as a tunic/ short dress. It was easy to cut out and follow instructions. I will be making it again.

Pretty smock pattern

The Wendy Smock was easy to make and looks great. I found the neck a little wide on the shoulders but this may have been because I didn’t gather the neckline sufficiently. I used a lightweight cotton and cropped the smock to just below the waist. I’ll definitely make it again but gather the neckline more.

Nice Thread

It's a nice thread!

Super pretty!

A very light and breezy fabric that is perfect for summer garments. I made a beautiful wrap top and it looks so good in this fabric! Love it. I washed it with salt before sewing as it is supposed to stop the dye from bleeding in the future, have not washed it since so cannot comment whether it has bled or not but it didn't seem to bleed on the first washing :)

Fun to make!

Great pattern! Easy to follow and impactful in its simplicity. Highly recommend to any sewers especially beginners for a speedy and fulfilling creative project.

Beautiful fabric

Have purchased Lady McElroy designs before and once again I'm not at all disappointed with the quality of this beautiful fabric which seems to get even better with each wash

Incredibly classy and comfortable lounge wear!

Thanks so much for an incredibly simple to follow pattern and instructions! The outcome is so beautiful, I've already made four pairs! The comfort level is next level!

Speedy service

Thanks Pattern Scissors Frock for your speedy delivery of the Wiksten pattern I ordered recently. Much appreciated!

Eager to sew

The order arrived promptly but just prior to Christmas so I haven't yet had a chance to sew it up. Very interested in the top and have purchased the linen to make it up

Happy customer

The pattern looks versatile and a good design. Having received it just prior to Christmas I haven't had a chance to sew it yet. I received the order promptly

Excellent service

My order arrived promptly. Extremely satisfied with the service.

Fantastic product. Fast shipping prior to Christmas.

What a fantastic book!

What a truly wonderful resource this book is for the home sewer, wanting their projects to look much more professional. I found it to be very detailed with instructions and diagrams. I am very happy I purchased this well thought out, well written, comprehensive ‘how to’ book. 🙂

Lovely fabric

The green shade I love, it will co-ordinate well with many colours. Currently making a shirt, this gorgeous fabric is soft, yet sturdy.


Very easy pattern to follow , instructions clear
Just watch the pattern layout if you have patterned fabric
Will be using this pattern so much
