Merchant & Mills

Merchant & Mills is a British haberdasher that makes beautiful sewing patterns, tools and more. We are pleased to welcome their products to our line-up at Fancy Tiger Crafts. Merchant and Mills patterns are really beautiful traditional garments. The detail in the instructions, pattern design, even the packaging makes for a wonderful presentation. Their focus is on classic, simple designs. You will find few fastenings and no unnecessary difficulty while working these patterns.

The Camber Set is a simple dress with tapered A-line silhouette and fitted sleeves for an easy-wear classic. This pattern provides two versions, a dress or t-shirt. 

The Dress Shirt is inspired by "Grandpa's shirt" and is a lightweight, versatile dress. This is a loose fitting comfortable dress for all your casual needs. 

The Top #64 is inspired by the fisherman's top with a little feminine flare to it. This top works well with fabrics in varying weight - do I see a heavy wool jumper in your future?

The Trapeze Dress is Merchant and Mills signature dress pattern. With a flattering fit, you can't go wrong with this staple! 

If you are seeking a more well rounded Merchant & Mills look, this book will take you through their tools, techniques, philosophy and working methods. Each task builds on the skills learned in the previous one to help expand your expertise. 

We are so happy to be carrying Merchant & Mills! Check back on Wednesday to see which pattern Jaime has already sewn up!
