// The Sparrow Set of patterns offers a modern alternative for lounge and everyday essentials, perfect for beginner sewists with just a little sewing experience! Our Sparrow Set features the full bundle of Sparrow patterns — the Sparrow Shirt and the Sparrow Pant + Short. A dreamy balance of simplicity, clean lines and unrestrictive comfort, the Sparrow Set is perfect for wearing in bed or out! Sparrow also makes a delightful match with our Make by TFS Lucie Robe, for ultimate luxurious loungewear vibes.

The Sparrow Shirt features a wide boxy cut with a relaxed shoulder, single front patch-pocket, turned down collar and ¾ popover button placket. The pattern also offers a sleeve length/shorten indication line, if you wish to customise. This pattern would be simple to hack into a dress too, by simply extending the hem!

The Sparrow Pant + Short features a wide straight fit through the leg, with a simple elasticated waist, drawstring, and in-seam pockets. The pattern also offers a shorts indication line, if you want to make a pair up for warmer weather.

This downloadable PDF pattern is supplied as an A4/US letter print-at-home version and an A0 copyshop version with an instruction booklet included. The Sparrow Shirt and Short + Pant patterns are available to purchase individually too. Buy the Shirt here and the Short + Pant here.

Recommended Fabric + Supplies

Fabric
The Sparrow Set is designed for light - medium weight woven fabrics such as linen, cotton lawn or poplin, silk satins and crepe de chines. We love how this pattern looks and feels in our Vintage Finish and Gingham Linens. For a pop of colour, you could also try a Liberty print!

Interfacing
Fusible interfacing for select pieces on the shirt is optional, and can help to provide stability for lighter weight fabrics. If using interfacing you will require up to 0.7m, depending on the size you choose. Adding a small piece of lightweight woven interfacing (fusing) at the centre front buttonholes on the pants is optional, and can help to provide stability for lighter weight fabrics.

Thread
You will need at least one spool of thread for straight stitching, and 4 additional threads if you choose to overlock or serge the exposed interior seams.

Drawstring
The Sparrow Pant + Short features a drawstring at the waist. You can sew your own, or use 10mm wide cord or tape. You will need a drawstring 1.6m – 2.3m, depending on the size you are sewing.

Elastic
You will need 50mm wide elastic for the waist of the pants. Between 0.7m - 1.4m will be required depending on the size you are sewing.

Buttons
You will need 5 x 12mm buttons for the shirt.

Tools
The Sparrow Set can be completed with a regular domestic sewing machine, with zig zag stitch capability and buttonhole function. If desired, you can finish/neaten interior exposed seams with an overlocker/serger.

You will also require an iron, a point turner, a sharp pair of sewing scissors and pins.
