Me & Frankie

Lire en français

I met Bérengère Fiat Lux pattern creator last March or April when her Blair pattern was released. And I really loved her patterns style and the fact that she’s such a TV shows fan she names her patterns after her favorites characters (Blair is from Gossip girl xoxo)!

So 2 months ago when she announced she was looking for testers for her next patterns I jumped to the chance. Luckily I was chosen!

That’s how I met Frankie


Like all Fiat Lux patterns, Frankie has many versions.
Fancy an easy and quick to sew sweater or blouse with 3/4 dolman sleeves:

  1. with elbow patchs?
  2. with open elbows?
  3. or without any?

Well Frankie is for you!


As I’m pear shaped I try to avoid loose clothes but I wanted to try the sweater version without elbow patchs (we begin slowly).


I chose the size according to my hips measurment and cut a size 46. And as I chose a remnant of plain thin jersey (I bought at Les coupons St Pierre and used for a Kommatia pattern’s long cardigan) I used only 80cm! With a print fabric you’ll need 1m50.


Thanks to Berengère’s thorough explanations, she makes sure to teach us each new technics in details (she was a sewing teacher), I could finish my version in a few hours. And I really like it! It’s nice to have a loose sweater.


I’m not sure that a blouse version would suit me but, I think I’m gonna sew another sweater with open elbow. It’s very peculiar but I’d like to try anyway.


Did you guess from which TV show Frankie’s name is from? Hint: it’s a Netflix show with Jane Fonda (I can’t help you more than that :D).
