The link to download the patterns is here you will need to register or sign in to access the pdf files but that's free.
The PDF is designed for European print sizes but my lovely friend Wendy in Perth kindly downloaded it and said it was fine, another friend in London tried with great results and here in the US it all printed just as it should! If you do have a issue send me a quick email or let Marfy know...
MARFY HAVE JUST LET ME KNOW (DECEMBER 3RD) THAT THEY ARE WORKING ON A LEGAL SIZE PDF FOR THE AMERICAN MARKET...SO HOLD OFF PRINTING FOR NOW!!
YOGILE Photo sharing (no account necessary, group sew along account and SO easy to use!!)
The sew along announcement is here
and some fabric suggestions from Marfy
Also on the first week of each new garment sew along , I will go into more details about my thoughts and choices of suitable fabrics and more difficult but possible ones!
The skirt would follow the jacket with fabric and eventual trimming suggestions (which is what I would do), but if sewn independently it gives the possibility for a wide range of fabrics...
