Elliot: “This pattern is such a great, beginner option for comfy tops that function like a t-shirt but add a bit more style. It was a quick, accurate sew that promises some interesting pattern hacks. I fully intend to add a half-dozen more to my wardrobe.”

Avery: “The Avery leggings are such a great, basic legging pattern. I enjoyed how easily and quickly I whipped these up. As someone who sizes out of most extended sizing, this pattern will definitely become a TNT. I wear legging every day and I definitely see several more pairs finding their way into my wardrobe.”


Elliot: “The Elliot sweater is a quick sew and easily dressed up or down. Makes the perfect cozy top.”

Avery: “It’s so hard to find legging patterns that go up past a 58″ hip in the sewing community. I’m so excited that Helen updated the Avery because I think it’s a great pattern to work with to get your perfect plus size leggings. Since everyone’s bodies are different, I think a muslin would be a great starting point so you can see where you might need to grade in/out or size up/down on. I’m excited to use the Avery to get a perfect fitting legging pattern with!”


Elliot: “Classic, comfy staple piece! I love the various options so you can have a simple or statement top to wear!”

Avery: “The perfect staple leggings pattern! The options are all so good and the instructions made things super simple!”



Elliot: “The Elliot is easy to dress up or down, depending on your choice of fabric. I made a casual version to wear with leggings and sneakers. I love the raglan sleeves and the split hem detail! Very fast to sew, too.”

Avery: “I loved the Avery Leggings I made from the original version of this pattern, but they are slightly too small now. I am so glad this pattern is now available in a wide size range so that I can make it again. I have found the Averys to be equally awesome for working out and for lounging, they are my all-time favorite leggings pattern!”


Elliot: “Elliot is a great pattern for a simple tee or a cozy layering piece. It goes together quickly and is an easy sew.”

Thanks so much for reading about our incredible pattern testers and their makes!
