    Just in time! This is the fourth pattern I’ve tried, and the best by far!

  2. joe peeple (verified owner)

    Very nice pattern! I have tried a couple of different facemark patterns, and this one is by far the best. It fits very snugly around your nose and chin. I would highly recommend this pattern!

  3. Anne Klopper (verified owner)

    I love it! Easy to follow. The best!

  4. Gaelle Brassel (verified owner)

    Very comfortable compared to surgical masks, and pretty easy to make. Thank you for sharing this great pattern!

    How do you download this? especially if its free?

  6. lmunn52 (verified owner)

    I tried three different patterns and this was the easiest to assemble. Fits well. I made them for several family members, and since they wear them, I know they like them.

  7. callaghanrebecca (verified owner)

    Very comfortable, fits very well. Thanks for this pattern

  8. 714seagirl714 (verified owner)

    Such a great pattern and (as always) so easy to use! Very straightforward and the variety of sizes really took the guesswork out of things

  9. Phyllis Anderson (verified owner)

    I haven’t tried the pattern yet. What do “US Letter” and “A4” mean? Also, will there be a video tutorial? Thank you.

  10. Kathleen (verified owner)

    I had high hopes for this mask but unfortunately it didn’t fit my face as well as I’d hoped. I have a long face so maybe that’s why? The pattern is well written and it’s worth trying out.

  11. gangstermum123412 (verified owner)

    With all the mask patterns around as soon as i watched DIBYs video , I knew this was the pattern id been waiting for . Just love it

  12. Mackenzie Gaultier (verified owner)

    Love this mask!! The fit is amazing. I also love that it has ties not elastics.

  13. leighthow (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this pattern, the instructions and clear and concise and I have now made over 40 masks using this pattern. It fits really well and I am confident in using the pattern. I have tried a few patterns and I come back to this one for any pleated masks with the bias ties because it is so fantastic and clear.

  14. varnaelainejohnson (verified owner)

    This face mask was easy to make and pretty comfortable. I made one for all of my family members.

  15. Peggy (verified owner)

    This is the best face mask pattern that I’ve made. There are so many patterns all over the internet, but don’t waste your time making others. The instructions were easy to follow. The mask fit well and was comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time. Thanks Jess!

    Much better pattern than other ones on the web. Easy to make and high quality.

  19. lindaleach1 (verified owner)

    Wonderful pattern, fits the best by far of any of the masks that I’ve made. Thanks, the search has ended…!

  20. Anita Reimer (verified owner)

    Just so simple yet so very effective mask. I tried many others and this is by far my favorite. Thanks to you Jessica for giving this as a free pattern.

  21. Belinda Jimenez (verified owner)

    Best face mask pattern ever! I tried so many before finding this. It’s comfy, easy to sew, and doesn’t fall down when I talk. Thank you DIBY!

  22. Jo Ann Crain (verified owner)

    I love this pattern. It was so So easy to sew and the fit was perfect. My favorite of all the face mask patterns

  23. carol davis (verified owner)

    A very well drafted pattern with excellent instructions. Has nice coverage to help you feel safe.

  24. Teckla Buller (verified owner)

    The pattern was easy to sew. I made it with ties and it worked well. Later, at my brother in law’s request, I modified it to have one elastic strap that fit roughly at the bottom of the ear level. He doesn’t like ties and finds the ear loops to hurt his ears. I also reshaped the upper edge of the mask to hug the cheek better. He was really happy with the result! Good pattern and easy to adjust to individual preference.

  25. James Seals (verified owner)

    A great pattern for an easy to construct face mask.

  26. Andrea Helmer (verified owner)

    Great mask and directions!

  27. jdweave (verified owner)

    This is a very well fitting, comfortable mask-with the ties you can snug it up around nose & chin. Having a pattern means an easy make. Highly recommended!

  28. dotlevymckenzie (verified owner)

    Very easy to make, and great coverage for my face. Made several for my hubby and me.

  29. sidneyrkt (verified owner)

    love it. Easy and fast to make.
    I was even able to reduce it a little bit more to sew them for my nieces (1 year old and 4, my sister in laws have them and can choose to put them on or not).

  30. Marie Leighton (verified owner)

    Thoughtfully done thank you

  31. Dorothy Moran (verified owner)

    This is a really good pattern and I have made several for friends and family. The only change I made is to have two loops of elastic to go round ears rather than the ties as folk preferred that modification

  32. dlmakowski57 (verified owner)

    Exactly what I wanted – a well fitting mask with ties instead of elastic. I wear glasses and most times have slipover sunglasses on top of them and did not want something else to rub on my ears. Thank you for sharing this pattern!!!

  33. Karen (verified owner)

    The very best mask pattern that I have tried. The mask fits well a variety of face sizes and shapes. The instructions are excellent. I know that people seem to live the look of ear elastics, and this could be modified to do use those. But, the ties as recommended a much more effective at getting a good fit and close seal around the edges.Glasses fog the least amount of any of the several mask patterns that I’ve tried. Thank you for this wonderful pattern and for making it free. You have performed a great public service.

  34. cvogt5 (verified owner)

    Great Pattern. Everyone I’ve made for has been very pleased. Thanks for the pattern that allowed me to help many others.

  35. Anne Hemsley (verified owner)

    What a great fit after several masks that didn’t fit well. Will make several more in different colours to match all outfits. .

  36. helenjeanwalton (verified owner)

    I have made 2-3 dozen of these! Easy to follow, fun to make and wear!!

  37. clcohen51 (verified owner)

    I’ve made more than 10 of these because they fit well and the directions are very clear.

    Best mask pattern ever! After trying so many others this is by far the most comfortable.

  46. Crystal Winter (verified owner)

    Looks very simple to make. I like the fit looks snug. I’m wondering what fabric to use for the main layer and the lining. I want to make sure I can still breath with the fabric I choose.

  47. Deborah Bailey (verified owner)

    Very easy pattern to follow, fits great, comfortable to wear.

  48. Adriana Rodriguez (verified owner)

    Love this mask pattern and it’s detail much nicer than the other masks out. A good crisp clean cut mask gets lots of complements!!

  50. Laura Ferguson (verified owner)

    Excellent pattern, well written, thank you!

  51. Katherine Brown (verified owner)

    Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. It was much appreciated. People actually love my different patterns and colors that I use in my mask.

  52. ning_propst (verified owner)

    Thank you so much for sharing your pattern and instruction for free. I’m learning to sew for the first time and it’s intimidating! But I will give it a try.

  53. sarakuraitis (verified owner)

    This mask is super easy to make. It fits very well and provides more coverage than other masks I’ve tried. It’s also quite comfortable to wear even for extended periods of time, and I have worn mine for 8+ hours without issue.

    I made a few minor modifications on my masks… instead of using the long fabric ties, I sewed buttons on the corners of the mask, and made removable (and adjustable!) elastic straps with loops to hook over the buttons. That made for a more comfortable fit that didn’t require adjusting or re-tying throughout the day.

    For the metal nose piece, 12 gauge aluminum floral wire (with the ends smoothed and folded over) works quite well and has held up through 10+ washes so far.

  54. Sylvie Robitaille (verified owner)

    Very easy to do. Fits well.

  55. Jo Ann Uline (verified owner)

    Love the different sizes! One size does not usually fit for little ones.

  56. Eloise Furst (verified owner)

    Great pattern. Easy to follow and easy to alter for a more personalised fit. Many thanks for making this free. 🙂

  57. Alison Kreitzberg (verified owner)

    I really like this pattern, I feel like its the most comfortable mask I have tried so far, but I did have trouble with figuring out the pleats on the sides. Also, the women’s mask size was a little big for me, but everyone has different size faces, so I just adjusted it a little bit. Thank you for sharing.

  58. foodfreak03 (verified owner)

    Excellent and so easy to follow. Have made many. Comfortable and easy to wear! A SPECIAL thank you for such a great pattern and offering for FREE!!!!

  59. Margaret O’Brien (verified owner)

  60. Marilyn Doyle (verified owner)

    easily the best mask to make.

  61. Emmanuelle Remy (verified owner)

    Excellent sewing pattern, I tried 3 different ones, this one was a clear winner in terms of comfort and assembly. Thank you so much for sharing for free! 🙂

  62. the5thgoulet (verified owner)

    I have used other face mask patterns but I really like this one. The fit is perfect and I like having two adult sizes because my husband has a big head! The fact that it has child sizes too is another big plus. Thank you again for your great products!

  63. Pat Jennings (verified owner)
