How it works

When you buy a digital pattern, you get a zipped file that contains the pattern and instructions for printing and assembling the pattern along with the sewing instructions.

1. Printing:

All patterns are made to fit a regular A4 printer. It is important to follow the printing instructions following the pattern to get the right scale. Printer settings should always be set to 100%. Print the test square on page 1 and measure it before printing the rest.

2. Assembling:

The A4 sheets need to be joined together to make the pattern. Each pattern has a different layout, based on the type of garment and number of sheets. Cut away the excess paper along some of the sheets before you tape them together.

3. Find your size:

Take your measurements and find the size that is closest to your measurements. Note that you might be a different size on the top and bottom of your body. Make the adjustments you need. It is often helpful to make a muslin (test) of the garment in a less valuable fabric (ie an old bed sheet) to see if it fits before making the actual garment.
