Customer Questions and Answers
Hello, wondering if I measure my widest part of my body and then just add length to the top and making sure my widest part is considered and it will be roomy enough for me, do you think this would work as a dress? Thank you x
Yes, you can always play around with the pattern to adjust it to make it your own design! If you would prefer a pattern already made up, look for our Mona Trapeze dress pattern.
Hallo, many thanks for the cute pattern. Does the pattern include a seam allowance? Kind regards from Germany - Monika
Yes, all of our patterns listed on our site include seam allowance.

Hi, love this pattern, but I'm a UK size 12 but large bust, so wondering if its suitable - its hard to see from the photos but it doesn't look as if it has darts?
Hello, this is a lovely basic pattern without darts, but if you are full busted, you can always add them in when you do a full bust adjustment. If you need a tutorial for this we have one on our blog here: blog.fabrics-store.com/2023/04/09/sewing-glossary-full-bust-adjustment-tutorial/
Hi! do you offer the pattern of the pair of pants that is worn with this top?
Yes, the pattern is our Magda Pants.
Hello ! Is there a way to get this pattern in a one piece download for a large scale printer ?
Our free patterns are only available in A4/Letter format.
I don't have a printer, and am having trouble getting this printed out. My local print shop uses only letter size paper. When they load the file in Microsoft Word and print, the 2" square is correct, but a part of each page is cut off at the edge. I am in Central America, so there is no Kinko's or other nationwide print shop here. Can you recommend an online print shop for this?
Hello, they may need to center the page to ensure one side isn't getting cut off.
Where can I find sewing instructions for the Phoebe Tank?
Simply go to our blog, The Thread: blog.fabrics-store.com and search for "Phoebe" in the search box.
I have set my default to open pdf's in Adobe and everyone opens NOT in adobe so I only get 4 to 5 pages of your description and how to download. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe, the most current version , I've changed my site settings .I've made adobe my default. I'm a registered customer--which BTW I LOVE your Nico and Lily paper pattern. Best bias dress ever!
Hi! Yay about the Lily and Nico :) The Free PDF patterns - this depends on how your browser is set to preview files and to download them. Your browser is most likely showing you the file in its own "preview" mode - you see the file but have no functions of that file. You'd want to save that file to your device and then open Adobe and then in the Adobe menu - ask it to open the saved file ( the file might be in the downloads or recent files folder). If you are stuck - send us an email to customer service letting us know what device you are using and we will walk you through it.
I made two Phoebes. One in black and one in white using their all purpose medium weight linen. This was my first ever sewing project and I am so pleased with the results! I've been wearing them almost daily and they are a perfect beginner project. THank you!
Once I worked out my correct sizing, this cute little linen tank top was so quick and easy to make up. I have several and love them all. I reach for them all the time in hot summer months. Perfect beginner project, that you will wear over and over again.
Sorry gals, I've gotta call 'em as I see 'em. I really appreciate free patterns, and especially the inclusion of large sizes - but one shape, with non-stretchy fabric, just does not work. This pattern is not suitable for large chested women. There are no darts, and no way of adding them without recutting the front. The neck is impossibly high in the front. When it was sized up to the plus size, they sized width of the chest, which makes it impossibly wide from shoulder to shoulder, which creates a big gap right in front. There is not enough shape to add a pleat with a couple of buttons to close the gap without tightening it over the bust. The arm holes are a nice size, the again, the straight cut on a chesty girl makes them pull funny, and you end up with huge gaps in front of the armpit which holds open enough to get a pretty good view of your bra. All my brick-house sisters out there, this one isn't for us. But F/S team, we love that you tried! :)
I've made four versions of this tank and have more planned! I've made it as is, cropped it, pieced it, and added tiers to make one of my favorite dresses. After my first one, I went up a size for the armscye and found that much more comfortable. It's the perfect staple and only takes me about an hour and a half to make.
I've been looking for a comfortable tank for ages. This is it. I have a very small chest and have decided I only need an undershirt instead of a bra. I started with the pattern as is, size 10-12. As I progressed, I lowered the neck line so the upper edge of the tank peeks out at the top of my shirts. This is easy to make and very comfortable made from IL030, IL020 and gauze. I've made 8 so far.
