To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

3542 Checkmate Ribbed Tie Waist Cardi

This garment is the kind of thing that can start barroom brawls, depending on how you wear it, and in what kind of company. The sleeves are very elegant with their high caps, and extra long too, with the flirty little tied cuffs (made and applied after the fact). The 1 x 1 rib used throughout only serves to make the whole very grippy and sensual. And the front (or lack of it)? Visual dynamite: this is a dance wrap to wear in the street, demanding special tops underneath, and commanding the attention of everyone in your vicinity. Gauge is given over 1 x 1 rib.
