WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

Please note you are purchasing a digital pattern that will be sent directly to your email inbox after payment. You can print this pattern at home on A4 or US letter-sized paper or take it to a print shop for large scale printing (AO size). *You will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*

Instant download available immediately after checkout includes:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here. 

3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.

You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.

Simple but elegant

This is a great pattern and a lovely dress to wear. I had to readjust the armhole depth, it was too low for my personal preference but enjoy wearing my dress on regular rotation.

Easy Egret dress

Love the pattern. The instructions were easy to follow and the pattern was a perfect fit. I am now about to start on my second dress.

Lovely pattern and a great inspiration but….

Having to print to the correct scale and get the pieces together is more like doing a puzzle than getting ready to sew a garment! It has been very time consuming and the project stalled. Buying a pattern that arrives in the mail would have been a lot simpler. This requires a good home office and a lot of tenacity.

Hi Raewyn, if printing at home is not your thing you can always take/send the large scale print file (labelled AO) to a Print Shop.

I’m out of practice

Lockdown has got me back into sewing again, thank goodness for my fabric stash! I think I am behind the times because I am used to 1.5cm seams not 1cm seam allowances. I did find it tricky with such a small seam allowance overlocking the seam allowance around the dolman sleeve curve, maybe there is some expert’s tip link that could have been included in the pattern??? I’m going to have a go at the dungarees next!

Egret Top

This was my fourth Sewing Revival pattern, and another great one! Easy to follow instructions to make a simple sew with clever features that give the top a look that suggests something much more complex! Love it!!

Egret Tank Dress size 10

The sleeve openings are very deep - so will need to wear something underneath it. I made the gathered version to start with but found the dress too full, so took out that out and made the belt. I also relaxed the neck a little as found it too tight.

The Sewing Revival

Hi Rachel, I am wondering if you made the correct size for you. You may find if you sew up the next size down the sleeve opening will be smaller and the dress less full. Kind regards, Janine

Egret Top

Love the pattern. Altered the sleeves to be longer and added elasticated cuffs. Easy to follow instructions. Thank you.

Egret Tank

Recently made the Tank with sleeves in a Yoryu chiffon and it was stunning, the pattern just falls together. The instructions are so straight forward - thank you. The pattern is true to size, when I make it again in a light fabric I will go up a size to get a softer drape.

Such a fabulous neckline.

I particularly loved the neckline for the Egret Dress. So simple to construct with such great effect. Next time I would probably go a size smaller as I felt the armholes were a little low and the dress was a little too full for my liking. Superb instructions as always by TSR.

Elegant top

This was a surprisingly easy, quick sew. I had it in my mind that the neck would be tricky-but it wasn't! Got so many compliments when I wore it to work

Egret for my niece

I promised a silk blouse to my niece. She chose Egret. I’ve worked up a toile— the pattern was simple and straightforward. Now to make a fabric shopping date with her to choose some silk!
