PRIMA Pattern, August 2013 - Kaftan Beach Cover-Up

The August 2013 PRIMA Magazine is still currently on the shelves in the Newsagents (as per standard for the publication of magazines, each issue comes out during the month prior to the date printed on the cover - so this issue came out during July) and the pattern is available to order by phone until the end of this August.

The pattern for August is a Ladies beach cover-up top. A loose-fitting kaftan with slashed front neckline has contrast bands at the hem and on the above-elbow-length sleeves. Sizes 10 - 20 (UK).

See my old post here on tips for ordering their patterns: PRIMA Magazine: How to Order Their Sewing Patterns.

   Q: I ordered my pattern, but it never arrived
  - what should I do?

   If you have ordered a Prima Magazine pattern using their phone-line numbers and it has not
   arrived within the 28-day period
(which they stipulate to allow for the delivery) then I'd
suggest that you contact them direct with your query :). The magazine is published
HEARST Magazines, and you can find their contact details here. Their email address is:, and their phone line for queries is regarding a magazine
   subscription order, renewal or enquiry please call *
0844 848 1601 or you can visit (which is the official online store of Hearst Magazines). [*NB: To save
   call-charge costs on your telephone
you could call this number instead
01858 438 797.]
    Both of the phone numbers given above are UK phone numbers.


  1. Have you made this? I thought I should give it a go as it looks so simple.

  2. @Giddyauntlola, nope I've not made it - but let me know if you try it out please :)
