PRINT-AT-HOME: This can be printed on standard A4 or US Letter size paper.
A0 COPYSHOP FILE: For most patterns you will also receive the pattern pages in large format (generally A0 size) if you prefer to print your patterns at the copy shop. For further information & advice on printing a large format file, please read the information pages in your pattern.
PROJECTOR FILE: All patterns released from 2020 onwards will also contain a projector file. These files are for use with projector technology. There are several groups on Facebook that can assist you with this.
LAYERS: Some (but not all) patterns are layered. Those that do are marked as such. We will endeavour to update all patterns to have layers (this takes time).
MEASUREMENTS: All measurements are listed in both centimetres & inches throughout.
FINDING THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOU: At the beginning of each pattern, in the information pages, I outline how to successfully determine the right size for you.We spend a lot of time getting this just right to make it easier for you.
INFORMATION PAGES: At the beginning of each pattern you will find Information pages to help set you up for a successful sewing project. Most of the answers to your questions can be found in these pages. They contain some or all of the following:
THE SEWING INSTRUCTIONS: I, personally, am a visual learner. Some of my children are not. So I understand, first hand, the importance of offering various ways of getting information across.
TIPS AND TRICKS: You will find plenty of tips and tricks, dotted throughout each tutorial. These are designed to help you achieve as professional a finish as possible. Some of my tips are not traditional but have been gathered over many years of experience, as well as from interaction with awesome sample sewists in the fashion industry.
MY BEST ADVICE TO GET STARTED: After you've purchased & downloaded your pattern, grab a cuppa (that's Aussie for a cup of tea or coffee) and sit down and have a look through the pattern. Familiarise yourself with what's in the information pages, how to find the right size for you, etc. and then have a read through the sewing instructions, step by step. I still use this method for anything new, and find it invaluable.
