Introducing Named Clothing | Scandinavian Sewing Patterns at

You could say I have a bit of an obsession over Scandinavian style. Danish furniture makes me drool. I could browse photos of Swedish architecture for hours. And of late, I’ve discovered I have a total weakness for Finnish fashion. If you haven't yet jumped on the Named Clothing train, you're missing out. Plus, their last collection was shot in the company of three majestic wolves. Wolves! I'm moving to Finland, stat.

What is Named Clothing? Named Clothing is a sewing pattern company started by two lovely, Finnish sisters, Laura and Saara. They’ve published three amazing collections of sewing patterns thus far that are all about modern silhouettes, surprising details, and functional fashion. Named Clothing sewing patterns are beautifully drafted and produce some of the most well constructed clothing I’ve ever made. Plus, their patterns span all sewing levels from super-simple-beginner to oh-my-god-I’m-sewing-jeans-advanced.

Let's take a look at our favorite Named sewing patterns, shall we?

The Yona Wrap Coat


The Yona Wrap Coat is a loose-fitting, lined raglan sleeve coat with front patch pockets and belt closure. This pattern is intended for the advanced sewist and will have you beaming with pride once you’ve finished it. The fully lined interior gives this coat a total luxurious feel, while the loose fit and belt closure means it will fit over even the bulkiest of sweaters.

I sewed my Yona Coat in a heavy-weight Tartan wool, with a lightweight, drapey polyester for the lining. This is one coat you’ll surely keep for years to come, so make sure to sew yours in a print you absolutely love. Next time, I’m going all out with Pendelton wool.

The Wenona Shirt Dress

The Wenona is a button-down shirt or dress with a loose fit, contrast yoke, cuffed sleeves, and optional front pleat detail. This pattern is intended for the adventurous intermediate or advanced sewist. The pattern provides the opportunity to use a contrasting fabric on the yoke and sleeves which gives this shirt dress a totally unique look.

Our Wenona Shirt Dress is sewn up in a double cloth cotton from Imagine Gnats. And truth be told, I’ve been wearing my Wenona Shirt Dress basically nonstop over the past few months.

The Nascha Mini Skirt

The Nascha Mini Skirt is lined with an overlapped front detail and an exposed back zipper, and is intended for the intermediate sewist. This basic skirt is a great addition to every wardrobe and can be worn all four seasons with leggings and tights.

Our Nascha Mini Skirt is sewn up in a fun, vibrant floral that makes it the perfect holiday wear with an oversized cardigan and boots. We love the asymmetrical front detail that adds flair to an otherwise basic piece. Sew yours up in a herringbone wool for a wardrobe staple that will mix and match well.

The Jamie Jeans

Jamie Jeans by Named Clothing | Sewing Pattern available at

Ah, the Jamie Jeans, probably the most popular women’s jeans sewing pattern on the market. These skinny jeans have a mid-rise, front seams and front and back pockets, and are intended for the adventurous intermediate to advanced sewist. We recommend first sewing a muslin (a practice version on inexpensive fabric) for your Jamie Jeans to achieve the perfect fit.

Our Jamie Jeans are sewn up in a mid-weight, dark wash denim with a bit of stretch. These jeans pair well with flowy, loose fitting tops and boots, flats or sandals. If you’re ready for a challenge and have never sewn your own jeans before, we encourage you to try your hand at this pattern.

The Nuna Hood Scarf

Nuna Hood Scarf |

We introduced the Nuna Hood Scarf and it turns out you all want one...or several. It’s obvious why. This lined, one-size scarf is a great simple pattern for most winter climates. This pattern is perfect for beginners or even brand new sewists.

Our Nuna Hood Scarf is sewn up in a thick, soft wool. We simply used the wrong side of the fabric for the lining, so that this hood scarf is fully reversible! Sew yours up in a wool/flannel combo and keep your noggin’ warm all winter long
