I love seeing both new & experienced sewers enjoy sewing & wearing clothes made using my patterns. I also know that not everyone can sew. So, small home-based handmade businesses selling items on Facebook, Etsy or similar, are welcome to sell products made from Pattern Emporium patterns, but I do kindly ask that you reference Pattern Emporium somewhere in your product descriptions.Due the nature of the item, refunds after purchase are not possible.

FABRIC & TRIM OUTLINE:
TRIM REQUIREMENTS: 32mm (1 1/4") elastic. Lightweight interfacing (fusing).
FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: The gorgeous prints available to you in quilting fabric ranges make this the ideal fabric. You can also use rayon, linen, cotton voile, cotton blends.
For special occasions, like a flower girl in a wedding for example, you can even use silk or silk like fabrics. Picture how beautiful an off-white silk skirt with the front waistband in a contrast colour to match the flowers, would look.
FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 110cm (44") fabric.
Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra. (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.
