Customer Questions and Answers


I am wondering why the wrap requires 3 yards and the cardigan 2 1/4 yards even though the finished garment measurements are the same for both.

Hello, the Wrap is longer than the Cardigan :)

Best Robe Pattern!

I used 4C22 Mix Natural to make the wrap pattern into a robe. I added 2 inches to the length of the long cardigan (same pieces as the wrap, just longer). It's perfect. This fabric feels luscious and I will be making more things with it. Truly the best robe ever. I can't wait to make the capris and a cardigan.

Favorite tunic

This is so casual and comfortable. I find that I am throwing it on over shorts, pants of almost any type. I am planning to make the longer version next.

First pattern purchase from FS

I've been making home decor items with the linen fabric from Fabrics-Store, and truly love the fabric. I'm addicted. I wanted to try a clothing item so I purchased the Akira pattern special with three yards of fine bleached linen and decided to make the pants first. I'm happy with the instructions but the pattern was very big, even the smallest size. I'm 5'2", small frame, 115lbs. I used the Capri length for full length pants and still had to shorten. I also had to shorten the crotch to waistband by almost four inches. I'm happy with my pants after many adjustments, but I'm a bit hesitant to try other patterns if they all run this big. How about a petite sizing in the patterns? The details in the pattern pockets are lovely. The overall look is very nice with the soft linen that came with the pattern. I'll be more conscious going forward of sizing with these patterns if I decide to try something else.

Perfect pattern

My daughter sketched the design for her jacket. She is a model and very specific about what she wants -?voila, this was the exact design. The pants are a bonus. I will transfer to pattern paper so I can sew this design again.

Akira short cardigan made with Desert Sand linen and embellished for a mother-of-the-bride outfit with a 1920's vibe.

I made the FS Akira cardigan pattern in the IL097 Double-sided Breeze Cobalt / White. I extended the sleeves to be long, omitted the ties, shortened the body slightly. I cut the fabric on grain except for the neckband which I cut in the cross-grain for a bit of visual interest. I love how deep the pockets are in this pattern and how soft and snuggly, and also breeze-y the fabric is. Oh, and I also used my serger instead of french seams.

I made the Akira pants with this "towel" fabric. The pattern gives plenty of ease, I made these in size 4 instead of 10 as was recommended for my waist size since I have no hips, lol! It was so easy to work with! I just started making garments a few months ago and had not made pants since 8th grade home-ec, 38 years ago. The directions & photo explanation booklet made it very easy. I've now made 4 pairs all with different variations. I did flat felled seams in these. The heavier weight will make these last forever & after washing & drying they are so soft & comfortable!

I love everything about this outfit; the fit, the drape, the color, the comfort level. The pattern was easy to follow and it came together fairly quickly. This is my first pattern from FS and I'm impressed.
