THE PATTERN LINE AND INSTRUCTIONS
Why they're different
Brown Paper Patterns is a series of "pattern packages". Each package contains five classic styles that are elegant yet uncomplicated. All patterns are drawn from the same base, or "block", so that any alterations needed will hold true for all of the styles in the pattern line. The pattern tissue includes ten sizes, with customary shorten and lengthen lines, and an option for a natural or lowered waistline on all of the skirts and pants.
These patterns have clean
lines, so they work well on most body sizes. Because they are
uncomplicated, they work well for new and returning sewers, and
for more advanced sewers looking for basic complements to more
elaborate creations. They are designed for women who are looking
for simplicity in the clothes they sew and wear.
At Brown Paper
