Exactly the pattern that I needed

I had a vision of long palazzo pants with a yoga waist, and Cleo was the absolute perfect starting point. My hack was to extend the lines down to create long pants, and I love how they turned out. The pattern waist as drafted was a super comfortable fit and the lines of the shorts/culottes made for easy lengthening. Fit was exactly as expected compared to other Sinclair patterns I’ve made. Thank you!

CLEO

I made a CLEO in stretch satin and was very impressed by the fit. The instructions were so easy to follow.

Comfortable culottes

Love these culottes … quick to make and very comfortable to wear.
I made them in a lightweight flowy cotton fabric and found them to be very useful during the recent UK heatwave. They also work well as pyjama shorts. Definitely will be making more of these

Love the shorts ❤️

I haven’t worn shorts in years. This is a very flattering style, cool, comfy and can be dressy, depending on the fabric or how you wear it. A must have in your wardrobe. Checkout the “Lifting Pins and Needles” for sewing support. That’s how I heard of Sinclair Patterns. Patterns are well drafted.

Wardrobe staple

I love the Cleo pattern! I've made several pairs and wear them all the time. The culottes are my favorite length but I have made the shorts too and they are great! I love how flowy and comfortable these are, but you still look put together!

Comfy culottes

This was my first Sinclair patterns make and I was very happy with the assembly, drafting and directions. The culottes were quick and easy. The pockets were too bulky but that’s my fault for not using a lighter lining fabric. I’ve made 2 culottes and plan to make the shorts next. Highly recommend!
