What makes a TAL signature sewing pattern? We have selected five of our most iconic patterns that we think represent our central design principles.
1. Timeless but make it fashion
Fashion is about attitude where the clothes you wear become an expression of who you are. Creating your own fashion gives you the perfect playground to choose colours, shapes, accessories and more, based on your preference and mood.
2. Minimalistic but not boring
The Scandinavian aesthetic is marked by focusing on clean, simple lines, minimalism and functionality, without sacrificing beauty. Details such as our wide cuffs and box pleats make our patterns a joy to make and wear.
3. Create with simple fabric
We want sewing to be fun and accessible! We strive to make our designs look good made in fabrics such as sheet fabric or an old cloth, which is easy to get hold of and easy to work with.
4. IKEA-worthy instructions
Since we are from IKEA-country (Sweden) we take pride in our easy-to-follow (as in hard-to-make-mistakes) instructions. And we always include guidance on a beginner’s level for various seams and assembly methods.
5. Quick to make
Inpatience is a blessing! Guided by her own impatience, our Creative Director Anki Josefsson knew she had to make it easy. Easy to find the materials needed and easy to create the garment with a guaranteed high-end result. Even for a non-professional.
