View A of the Elliot is my personal favourite. The high-low split hem and super cozy neck are just perfect for styling over jeans and leggings. You can make this view with the lower neckband of view B or even the classic t-shirt neckband of view C. It is so easy to mix and match with Elliot! View A has a 3/4 length sleeve that is oh-so elegant and comfortable.

View B of Elliot has been an awesome addition to my wardrobe because it pairs so well with my high-waisted culottes and skirts. It also looks great over a dress! This view features an elbow length sleeve, a cropped hem, and a shorter neckband. It is a simple piece that has proven to be extremely versatile.

Last but certainly not least, view C of Elliot has completely stolen my heart. I didn’t know I needed a raglan sleeve tee in my life until I began work on this pattern! View C has a classic t-shirt length, a neckband, and the same elbow length sleeve that also looks really great bunched or rolled up on the arm. The fit is relaxed and casual, perfect for everyday wear.

  1. Fantastic pattern! Can’t wait to sew it up!!! I have a perfect fabric for it in my stash! I’ve been looking for exactly this pattern for a while now. So thank you Helen for making my sewing dream come true!

  2. I love love love this pattern, Helen! It’s perfect for so many outfits. And your photos are completely gorgeous, as usual.

  3. I live in Calgary, and I’ve just discovered your blog and am very interested in the long sleeveless dress you made in the pretty linen print you bought on your trip to Thailand. You mentioned in your post that I could enquire about the pattern (self-drafted, I think you said). It’s exactly the type of dress I need too. I’m a bit larger than your sizes go, but want to try to make the pattern in my size if possible. Thanks Helen. Love the new sweater pattern too.

    1. Hi Marlene!

      Thanks so much for following along with me! I will be working on a pattern for that dress to be released around may/june of 2019. I also plan to expand the size range for it, so it should be a good fit 🙂 I hope you can wait!

  4. Love this new pattern! And thanks for being in Canada, where you know what cold is! I want patterns that will look good and keep me warm here in Buffalo, NY. You get it!
