We are so excited to release this standalone Uniform Tunic pattern. The Uniform Tunic was originally released as a traceable pattern in the collaboration book Uniform-Knit & Sew with Madder. We received numerous requests to release the Uniform as a standalone pattern from people who wanted printed and PDF versions of the pattern that didn’t require tracing as well as those who weren’t interested in purchasing a knitting book. This brings us to today!

The pattern was designed as a choose your own adventure sewing pattern. While we have provided four options for you, the possibilities are endless as all of the design features mix and match! This makes it easy to sew a version of the pattern that works for you. Choose between your favorite neckline, skirt, sleeve, and pocket option.

We suggest using light to medium weight woven fabrics such as cotton, linen, voile, and chambray; but, we also love how it looks when made up drapier fabrics like tencel or silk noile. We’ll be sharing multiple versions over the coming weeks to showcase the difference in fit and look of the garment in different fabrics.

Read about the design features of the pattern below!

      Hi Cate, the new size range is planning to roll out this fall (hopefully sooner) with the release of a few new patterns. After those release the plan is to go back and revisit older patterns in the new size range. As of now we don’t have any exact dates, but will be updating the community with those details when we have them.
