What Will Be Included With My Sewing Pattern?

All patterns include a materials list with recommended fabrics, fabric yardage, notions, and size chart. All pattern pieces are computer generated and sizes are color coded for easy cutting. You can print the pattern in black and white if you prefer. Large or longer pieces (piping) are cut using dimensions to save you paper and ink. The pattern pieces shown are just a guideline. 

How Soon Will I Receive My Sewing Pattern?

All patterns are instant download. As soon as your payment clears you will receive your download link. You can also access this link at anytime from the “My Account” tab in the left menu of the site. You only have one (1) download available. If you look at the sewing pattern from your phone that will use your ONE download. Please make sure your have a printer available when you open your digital download.

How Long Will The Sewing Pattern Be Available?

What Sizes Are The Sewing Patterns?

Most of my PDF patterns are in 5 sizes. Sizes overlap each other when you print them.  Yellow = XS, Black = S, Red = M, Green = L, and Purple = XL Sizes range from 0-15 Junior sizing. Keep in mind  that my sewing patterns are meant for stretchy fabric. The sizing will change according to  how much stretch is in your fabric choice.

How Do I Print My Sewing Pattern?

After download of your PDF file, save it to your computer. Patterns are formatted to print on US letter (8.5 x 11) and A4 (8.27 × 11.69). Print at 100% with no scaling. Most patterns are in portrait view. My earlier patterns may have been done in landscape (it will be noted in the written instructions) Line up the hearts to piece together the pattern after printing.  Use clear tape to keep the pattern pieces together.

Are Seam Allowances Included In Sewing Pattern?

Yes, the seam allowance is already included on all pattern pieces. Check the sewing guidelines for the seam allowance of each  specific pattern.  I usually use 1/4″ serger stitch seam allowance and hemlines are 1/2″ (keep in mind  with stretchy fabric 1/8″ will not make much difference)
