we're making patterns!

It's been a longtime dream of our team to create our own small range of home sewing patterns and we are SO excited to finally be able to share a sneak peak of what we're working on in the form of our very first pattern! Make by TFS has evolved from our desire to encourage as many people as possible to sew their own clothing, a natural extension of our sustainable and ethical business values and our design-driven philosophy. Our patterns are being created end-to-end by our small Auckland-based team and will be available as PDF downloads from our Online Store initially. We'll begin to explore options to provide printed hardcopy patterns as Make by TFS grows!

meet the lucie robe

Say hello to Lucie; a modern, full-length, oversized robe with a generous front wrap and considered detailing. Lucie is our very first pattern and is a simple style, designed to lounge in at home, throw over swimwear at the beach, or pair with sandals in the summer as a wrap-style dress!

Lucie features a rectangular sleeve, elongated collar, turned-back hems, a removable waist tie, and side seam pockets. It is designed to finish between calf and ankle but can be easily shortened or lengthened if desired. Lucie comes in sizes A, B and C, please refer to the size chart online for details. The pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner sewist, with just a little sewing experience and sewing machine knowledge required!
