11 New Patterns Now Available!

We are so proud to announce the official launch of our new collection! It includes eight new patterns (available in both paper and PDF) as well as three PDF-only patterns (styles that would not fit on our regular pattern sheets).

Color printing
Because we received so much positive feedback about colour-coded pattern lines, we decided to also print these new patterns in color.
Real Paper
We still use the same heavy white paper. We promise we will never, EVER switch to tissue paper!

Improved Instructions
Images and text are now on the same page, no need to go back an forth between text and illustrations! As always, all our instructions can be downloaded in PDF format from our website. This way people can view the instructions on a tablet or print them regular paper for quick reference.

Here are our new designs:

Jalie 3349 Ballet Leotards

paper pattern / digital pattern (PDF)

Jalie 3351 Swim Shorts
paper pattern / digital pattern (PDF)
