Ahoy Collection

Ahoy Collection

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our latest Papercut Patterns collection, "Ahoy"! Our range of six nautically-inspired patterns offer versatility and feminine flair for a wardrobe boost. 

Adrift Dress

A feminine dress for warm summer days. Features include gently ruffled sleeves and hemline, wrap skirt, bust darts and gathered waist with additional wrap skirt option. The wrap-around skirt option features a waistband with front and back darts.

Bowline Sweater

Inspired by seafaring knots and bow waves, our Bowline Sweater offers structure and casual wear rolled into one. The unique pleated front is a show-stopper and would suit print or plain fabric alike. This fun sweater comes with a raglan sleeve, self-waistband and wide cuffs.

Sea-Bell Dress

Our Sea-bell Dress is a fully-lined, fitted sheath dress with bell sleeves, full-body princess seams and centre back invisible zip. 3/4 bell sleeves help create a dramatic silhouette and gentle shaping through the seams allows for greater flexibility when fitting to your own unique shape. The skirt option features a waistband and exposed back zip.

Skipper Tunic

Our most versatile pattern yet, the Skipper Tunic comes with 3 sleeve options, 3 neckline shapes and 3 garment lengths. This relax-fit garment can be cropped, hip or tunic length with a square neck, v-placket or lace up front options. If you want a pattern full of potential, this is it. 

Starboard Jeans

The slim leg Starboard Jeans feature angled front pockets, additional zippered front pockets, back yoke and zip detail at the ankle. With a mid-rise waist for a flattering fit and back pockets with room to add your own top-stitching design.

Moana Dress

Meaning "sea" in Maori, our relax-fit dress or top features a ruffle waist that dips slightly at the back with gentle shaping though the body. The Moana dress includes bust darts, exposed back zip, back darts and optional gathered skirt.
