NEW sparkles Our Pedal to the Metal pins are here! Perfect for sassy sewing lovers who aren’t afraid to put their foot down.
Cape Town sewing friends – join us for our Cosmos bralette workshop this weekend! For those further afield, perhaps give our PDF pattern a go! Our friendly, comprehensive instructions make it fun and approachable to sew your own bra :)
Undoubtedly a firm favourite, the Fern shorts make a lovely vintage-inspired addition to your summer wardrobe! (Although for the southern hemispherical among us, I also rate winter Fern shorts with stockings.)

About

About Afternoon

Hi there!

Afternoon is an independent sewing pattern label based in Cape Town. We celebrate the culture of making. I started drafting sewing patterns as a way to make things, step outside the cycle of fast fashion, and revive a beautiful and forgotten craft.

Inspired by stylish friends and using vintage silhouettes as a point of departure, Afternoon patterns offer a modern take on a traditional craft. All our sewing patterns are available in an easy-to-use digital download, with our bestsellers available as printed patterns too.

I hope that making useful and beautiful clothing can be the beginning of a wonderful sewing adventure for you. If you'd like to get in touch, drop me a line at hello[at]afternoon.co.za. I always love to hear from you.

Happy sewing!
Jenny
