Pattern cover of a sewing pattern showing the simulation and schematic sketch of a Victorian sleeve crinoline

New in the Shop!

This sewing pattern, for a sleeve crinoline, is inspired by the elegant silhouette of the 1890s.

I’ve crafted this design to solve the issue of my cycling sweaters lacking the desired shape. Drawing inspiration from historical garments showcased in various museums, I’ve created a pattern that not only ensures a flattering and structured fit but also captures the essence of the era.
