Fremantle Pants : Updated 28th March 2023

The PDF is now layered.

The sizing chart is more in line with my other charts - previously, this pattern jumped up in 3in increments from sizes H to N. I've re-graded the sizes to go up in 2in increments so your size name may be different if you are H and up.

This pattern and instructions was one of my earliest and created on older software. So I completely re-did the instruction graphics, adding in a few extra details here and there.

Extra details in the instructions - more measurements added to the Finished Garment Measurement chart etc.

In regards to the fit of the pants, I've taken away a bit of extra ease around the hip.

The front pockets are bigger.

Sanders Button Up:

Updated 9th October 2023

- Three new sizes added, now goes up to a 58" (147cm) chest.
- Pattern is now layered. Print only the size/s you want.
- A few small tweaks to the existing pattern. Slightly altered neckline, armscye curve changed slightly. Slightly smaller pockets/pocket flaps.
These changes aren't huge so you could still use your existing pattern with no issues if you don't want to re-print. 

Updated November 9th 2020

Pockets made smaller

Centre back of yoke lowered by 0.5cm

Cornell Shirt : Updated 9th January 2023

I've updated it to be a layered PDF (print only the sizes you need).
An extra size has been added to keep it in line with my current menswear size chart.
I've added a few links to the instructions for videos and blog posts relevant to the pattern construction.
The pattern itself hasn't had any changes except for the sleeve head from sizes H to M is slightly wider. The centre front placket for View A is also a few centimetres shorter.
There have also been a few small tweaks here and there to make the graphics more aesthetically pleasing.

Updated on August 20th 2020 

Small error in the placket illustrations in the instructions.

Some lines on half of the neck on the back yoke pattern piece were tweaked to mirror the other side.
