Every sewing pattern from Apostrophe Patterns is created to fit perfectly. No grading between sizes required. How is this done? Well, we ask for your unique measurements.

I have made several patterns including Myfit. The instructions on this pattern as so challenging. Some do not work (e.g. wrapping the zipper guard around the bottom of the zipper. The links from one section to another did not work. I ended up just figuring it out on my own. Very frustrating. The pattern is drafted just fine. the end result is fine. I just spent way more time trying to figure out the instructions than any patterns I have used in the past, including MyFit.
I really love this pattern. Someone suggested it to me becasue i had some fitissues buying sleepers for my son. The thing about the fit was he wore super big cloth diapers at night and he was aa big boy for his age, so he was already wearing the biggest size available in stores in cotton or jersey fabric. And the fit was oke.. .. I dont often buy patterns but this was VERY promising. I had some things i would like to do better next time since it wasnt clear enough for me the first time. But i sew it quickly and it was wearable and the fit was awesome! At the moment im making him a birthdaygift of a sleeper for his doll :D When can you do something like this easily right?
Confession. Still taping pattern. Haven't made it up yet
However, the multiple options are what appealed to me. Ask me in a month!!
I bought this because I wanted to make matching PJs for Christmas but I also love that you could use this pattern to make a Halloween costume too. This pattern is perfect! I love it!!
Also, PS, I feel like after a few years of using your patterns, I feel like I understand patterns and making clothes so much better now than I ever have before. I really love Apostrophe patterns. My favorite!
Very useful to have toddlers and children standard size that can be then adjusted with a few personalize measure. Also love the fact that the pattern piece can be split horizontally for colour blocking and that we can print entire pattern piece (rather than on the fold). Cannot wait to make additional outfit and pijama for my little ones.
