About Afternoon

Hi there!

Afternoon is an independent sewing pattern label based in Edinburgh. 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] I always love to hear from you.

Happy sewing!

Frequently asked questions
How does postage work?

Patterns are posted from Edinburgh, UK, using the Royal Mail service that delivers worldwide. Standard (not tracked) postage is free in the UK, £2 to the EU, £3 to South Africa and £6.80 to the rest of the world. UK customers can choose to upgrade their shipping to Royal Mail 24 Tracked for £4.

IMPORTANT! We do not send by courier, so please provide a postal address. Standard delivery does not include a tracking number.

When do you post orders?

We will send your pattern within 1–3 business days of your order. And we'll let you know when it's been sent!

We go to the post office on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9am. So, most weekday orders will be posted on Friday mornings, and weekend orders on Tuesday mornings. :)

How long will it take to arrive?

All our orders are posted through Royal Mail, which takes a day for delivery within the UK, and 7 to 14 working days internationally. Orders can be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. If you need your order urgently, please get in touch to arrange expedited shipping via courier.

What if I want it faster?

Sure, that can be arranged! We deal with expedited orders on a case by case basis. If you need it fast, please email me and we can chat.

What about missing or damaged goods?

We can't take responsibility for patterns damaged in transit, but if damaged goods are supplied by us, they will be replaced.

All orders are sent in good faith via the postal system, unfortunately we cannot be held liable for lost or stolen goods.

Please note no returns or refunds.

May I use your patterns to make items to sell?

Sadly, no. All parts of Afternoon pattern are for personal use only. The patterns may not be reproduced, distributed or shared. Items made from the patterns may not be sold.
