A parade of patterns - our top 9 choices!
In most of our newsletters the fabric takes center stage, and rightly so—it’s the biggest part of what we do at Stonemountain & Daughter! While we all love fabric, we couldn’t make the clothes we love without great garment patterns. Today we’re sharing the most popular patterns from our collection, with fabric picks for each one. We’re starting off with Friday Pattern Company’s Ilford Jacket, a pattern that has been a best-seller since it came out. The Ilford is incredibly versatile—we’ve made it in cotton canvas, wool coating, linen, and in flannel, as you see here. It’s a fun layering piece that we’ll happily pair with The Assembly Line’s Oversized Shirt—a tunic-length button-up that’s at its best in a shirting or a crisp cotton lawn. 
all about patterns
We stock patterns from the best indie pattern companies around the world—it is so important to us to support other small businesses, and we are delighted to share their patterns with our community of sewists. Our ever-evolving collection includes over 500 patterns, which you can browse by garment type and then sort further by designer and type of fabric. We have also curated mini-collections for our most-requested pattern categories: beginner-friendly patterns and those that are available in an extended size range (patterns in this category are drafted for a hip measurement of at least 55 inches). We always hope you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in our pattern collection, but if there’s anything you’d ever like us to add, please let us know!

Sew House Seven’s Free Range Slacks is another favorite pattern—it’s achievable for sewists of any skill level, is drafted up to a 65-inch hip, and makes a wonderful wardrobe staple! We have a sample garment in the shop made with Kobe Twill, a perfect fabric choice for these pants. For a quick wardrobe refresh, choose your favorite knit fabrics for a few versions of Cashmerette’s Concord T-Shirt—it’s a classic t-shirt pattern that includes multiple neck and sleeve styles for a variety of great looks!
Lady McElroy
An everyday dress can really round out your wardrobe, and Sew Liberated’s Hinterland Dress pattern is so wearable that you’ll want to make a few for your weekly rotation! We love this dress in easy-wear Essex Linen/Cotton, which we carry in a few different weaves and dozens of great colors. Noodlehead’s Sandhill Sling bag pattern has been a big hit with our staff as well as our customers, and it’s a clever way to feature a favorite Japanese import like this cute chair print canvas!
Essex – Linen/Cotton
And now, a toast: to a pattern for knits that we can’t stop sewing (how many do you have in your closet?)—let’s hear it for Sew House Seven’s Toaster Sweater! This pattern is perfection in any sweater knit, but we especially love it in a Mind the Maker Organic Jacquard Knit. A striking sweater is even better paired with a comfy pair of Pants No. 1. This classic from 100 Acts of Sewing is our favorite pattern for absolute beginners—it’s fantastic in Essexflannel, or even in your favorite quilting cotton!

Have you ever wondered who to thank for the amazing variety of paper sewing patterns we carry? Meet our pattern buyer, Rebecca! Rebecca stays in contact with our pattern partners, awaiting new designs and making sure we have copies of all the patterns you want to sew. When she’s doing her own sewing, Rebecca loves using Friday Pattern Company designs like the Wilder Gown, pictured here. We’re all out of the fabric Rebecca used to make her dress, but we think it would be incredible in a brushed viscose challis. Since you’ve read along this far, we have some exciting pattern news to share: by popular demand, we are adding StyleArc Patterns to our collection this month!
