Burda's 6812 is a great pattern for making wide-legged trousers, culottes and shorts. The features include front pleats, a fly zipper, a waistband and slant pockets. Burda has rated this pattern as being 'average' in difficulty (its middle of three difficulty levels). As for reviews, there are currently no reviews of this pattern on PatternReview.com.
The Lark Tee is Grainline Studio's latest pattern. If you're looking for a pattern for a basic T-shirt, this is a great option! It's got a modern, slim fit - not extremely baggy or tight. You can wear it on its own or under shirts, jumpers or jackets. There are four neckline options and four sleeve options. So, it's a really versatile, classic pattern that you'll be able to make again and again! Grainline Studio has rated this a 'beginner pattern' - its easiest difficulty level. As for reviews, there is currently only one review of this pattern on PatternReview.com and it's positive!
Based on our inspiration images, I've recommended a few of our suiting fabrics and cotton sateens for 6812. For Lark, I've recommended a few of our cotton and viscose jerseys. You can see all of the recommended fabrics at the bottom of this page.
I apologize to fans of colour: this definitely isn't your week! You can find alternative (more colourful) fabrics by clicking on the links above to see our wider collection of suiting fabrics, sateens and jerseys. :-)
