Special occasion sewing patterns

Our special occasion sewing patterns make it easy to find the perfect outfit for your next formal occasion, from a big work event to a wedding. Finding the perfect look for a formal occasion has always been difficult, with the options available in shops often not being what you envisioned. And even when your ideal outfit is available it can often be a poor fit, meaning it will never look as good as you’d hoped. We sell an incredible range of sewing patterns for special occasions, using our position as the UK’s biggest pattern house to bring you the widest range around. Make sure you look your best for your next big event, shop our range of special occasion sewing patterns today.


Can I adjust the measurements?

We understand how important it is for your clothes to fit perfectly, and this is only more important when you’re going somewhere special. Because of this, all our special occasion sewing patterns can be adjusted as required, allowing you to create an outfit which fits you perfectly.

Can I customise the sewing patterns for special occasions to suit my style?

Our team works hard to make all our sewing patterns as easy as possible to customise, allowing you to tweak the design to your heart’s content. We love seeing what tweaks you come up with and how you improve our patterns.

I’m a beginner, are these special occasion sewing patterns right for me?

All our sewing patterns come with easy-to-follow instructions which are designed to be as simple as possible to follow for anyone, no matter your experience with sewing.
By design, many of our special occasion patterns are more elaborate than alternative patterns, making them more difficult of a task for sewing beginners than others. Simple instructions make it much easier than otherwise to create elaborate outfits, however, and we do offer a number of patterns which have been specifically designed for beginners.
