Dear Maven Makers,

We were alerted yesterday to an error on our lovely French Dart Shift paper pattern. Unfortunately the fabric measurements have not been ported across from the inside of the instructions to the outside of the box properly when we had to change printers and as a result aren’t quite right! We have now corrected the ones we have in stock but if you have purchased a French Dart Shift paper pattern after March this year there is a possibility that yours may be affected. (If you bought a pattern on Sunday from us at The Festival of Quilts yours will be OK!)

We would like to stress that the costings for fabric requirements are correct in the instruction booklets so you can use this without worrying. We apologise for this inconvenience and we are absolutely gutted that this has slipped through our many hours spent proofing and testing, however, we are all only human after all!

A big thank you to the lovely ladies at The Festival of Quilts who still bought a pattern when we pointed out our mistake with a shrug of ‘these things happen’ we were totally humbled but your kindness and understanding.

If you have any questions or would like any help please do not hesitate to get in touch

❤️ Sharon and Eve

  1. Hi I bought the French Dart Shift made 2 short sleeve versions now thinking of making version C just wondered if version C Fabric requires the same as version B?

    1. Hi Sue!
      Version C takes a little more fabric than Versions A & B, because of the sleeve length.
      For version A or B you will need; 150cm wide cloth – 1.8m / 115cm wide cloth – 2.40m (for fabric with or without nap)
      For version C you will need; 150cm wide cloth – 2.10m (with nap) or 1.90m (without nap) / 115cm wide cloth – 3.10m (with nap) or 2.80m (without nap)
      Hope that helps!

  2. Thank you so much for your reply really helpful. I’m loving the pattern can’t wait to get going on the long sleeve version
