How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.

Most shipping services we offer come with a tracking number. This will be sent to you via email you once the order has been processed in our warehouse.

I am so happy with how my Kelly Anorak turned out. I made a size 8 and made it a little more cropped by removing two inches from the 'lengthen/shorten here' line at the waist. I didn't have to make any other changes/alterations. I used the lining expansion and I did accidentally cut out the original sleeves for my mockup (the lining has a different sleeve with no cuff). I made a quilted version from linen with a cotton batting. The jacket is super comfortable to wear- it has a great range of movement at the shoulder and upper arm, the collar is cozy and the pockets are deep and roomy for phones, keys whatever. The instructions are clear and any construction questions that popped up were pretty much answered by referencing the sew alongs on this website. Anybody could make this jacket.
I made an unlined version of the jacket as I was using a soft-shell fabric with fleece lining. I just LOVE my jacket. The style, the cut ... everything!! I found the instructions clear and easy to understand, but really appreciated the additional pattern explanations on the blog. I took my time with the making of this jacket and enjoyed the whole process. I have had many compliments on the jacket. I love it. Thank you :)
I found it easy to make by following the instructions given. I didn't have to make any adjustments for my size. Whether you are a first time sewer or experienced one you will find it easy to make. I am also going to make a heavier winter jacket and also a winter coat with this pattern.
I made a lined waterproof version of the Kelly Anorak with the collar and an additional detachable hood (I traced the original hood piece and shortened the front flaps. Then I just attached it with snap buttons) The pattern was straight forward to sew, the instructions were clear. The muslin was pretty tight in the back. I intend to use the jacket as an everyday-rainjacket, so I made a broad back adjustment and lengthened the sleeves to have more room to stretch my arms forward.
As usual, a very good quality sewing pattern 😀
This was the first jacket pattern I have made. Pattern was great, instructions clear even for a jacket newbie and fit is perfect. Such a high end feeling finish paired with the lining extension.
