Our Make by TFS Sparrow Set is an ideal pattern for honing your sewing skills; with beginner-level construction, a relaxed, simple pyjama-style silhouette and classic detailing. Four crisp striped chambray styles arrived recently as part of our new Upcycled Cotton range and they are a DREAM to sew Sparrow with. Check out photos of this set below, kindly modelled by Zosia from our Online Team.

Our Make by TFS Sparrow Set (featuring both top and bottom patterns) are available in PDF format from our Online Store and in a printed format from both, online and retail stores.

The Sparrow Set of patterns offers a modern alternative for lounge and everyday essentials, perfect for beginner sewists with just a little sewing experience! Our Sparrow Set features the full bundle of Sparrow patterns — the Sparrow Shirt and the Sparrow Pant + Short. A dreamy balance of simplicity, clean lines and unrestrictive comfort, the Sparrow Set is perfect for wearing in bed or out! Sparrow also makes a delightful match with our Make by TFS Lucie Robe, for ultimate luxurious loungewear vibes.

The Sparrow Shirt features a wide boxy cut with a relaxed shoulder, single front patch-pocket, turned down collar and ¾ popover button placket. The pattern also offers a sleeve length/shorten indication line, if you wish to customise. We made a short sleeved shirt for Zosia, using 1.3m of our Fine Stripe Chambray - Ecru / Blue (154cm wide).

The Sparrow Pant + Short features a wide straight fit through the leg, with a simple elasticated waist, drawstring, and in-seam pockets. The pattern also offers a shorts indication line, if you want to make a pair up for warmer weather. We made up shorts for Zosia, and this used 1.10m of our Classic Striped Chambray - Ecru / Blue.

Note that for both garments we cut the pieces across the grain, so the stripe runs vertically down the body.

We are so proud to be stockists for The New Denim Project - a range of fabrics produced within a completely circular model, created by a third generation family-owned textile mill in Guatemala. The New Denim Project created this range of woven fabrics by collecting and sorting post-industrial cotton waste from local garment factories and grounding these scraps back into fibre. These fibres are then spun into new yarns again, to weave and upcycle into our collection of upcycled cotton fabrics. This upcycling process minimises water and energy consumption and uses no dyes, chemicals or synthetic fibres. The lack of dyeing gives these fabrics a truly special finish which we love. You'll see a little speckle of history visible in the texture and colours of this fabric! This easy-care, non-stretch, machine washable fabric is a dream choice for any denim lover, ideal for everyday wear.

Upcycled Chambray Stripes above from left to right are our Upcycled Fine Stripe Chambray - Ecru/Blue, Upcycled Classic Stripe Chambray - Blue/Ecru, Upcycled Classic Stripe Chambray - Ecru/Blue and Upcycled Wide Stripe Chambray - Blue/Ecru
