Note: The cutting pattern includes a 1cm seam allowance. For an optimal result, the cutting pattern should be printed in the original size (100 % scale). Simply check the size of the control square after printing. All fabrics should be pre-washed, dried and ironed to prevent the item from shrinking. Unless otherwise specified, lock all seams at the start and end.



  • Domestic sewing machine
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Pins or clips
  • Tailor's chalk or a pen to transfer the pattern where necessary
  • Ruler or tape measure where necessary
  • Scissors or rotary cutter with cutting mat
