Handkerchief Hem Maxi – A4

Click the link above to download your free PDF pattern. You can print it out on pieces of A4 paper like tiles and stick it together to make a full size pattern.

This pattern takes 2.5 metres of fabric (standard 150cm / 60inch width). NO SEAM ALLOWANCE.

All my free sewing patterns are made to fit a UK size 12, but can be easily adjusted at key points to go larger or smaller. Have a look at the Making a pattern fit page for how to do it. There are also measurements on this pattern so it is easy to draw out yourself on wrapping paper or wallpaper lining if you don’t have a printer – or actually, sometimes its easier if you want to make adjustments.

Have a look at the post on my blog about this top for helpful tips and ideas about which fabric to use.

    Don’t try this if you don’t have a colour printer and are not familiar with raglan sleeves. The dots to match are referred to as blue dots, yellow dots, green dots, etc, and given there are no line drawings, it was impossible for me to put this together.
    Also, you need the widest fabric to cut the pattern pieces. Note to designer – it would be good to replace the ‘green’ dots and ‘blue’ dots with triangles and half moons and stars and hashes to make this pattern intelligible for the most of the world who have access only to monocolour printers. Its a shame because the dress looks so attractive but I’m sorry I tried it because I ruined my gorgeous fabric.

      I’m sorry to hear that Jo. I will have a look at amending it. (You could look on screen to see what colour the dots were?)
