This product is a downloadable PDF sewing pattern that can be printed at home on a computer (using 8.5” x 11” or A4 paper). The file also includes large format pages for 36” or A0 (international) wide sheets to be printed at a print shop.
After accessing your e-mail link or viewing your "Digital Library," click on the pattern file to download. Download and save the pattern file to your computer. We do not recommend printing the pattern from a browser preview version of the pattern file.
The download file link will only allow five download attempts of your file. Retain your email with the download link for future downloads or create an account to access again. Once you download your file, it is helpful to locate your file. On most computers, it will likely be downloaded by default to your Downloads folder. Once you have downloaded your file, it is up to you to save your file in a safe place. We recommend backing up your files regularly.
Open the saved pattern file using the latest version of Adobe Reader. If you don’t have Adobe Reader on your computer, you can download it for free at www.adobe.com/reader. Other PDF reader applications may not accurately display or print the pattern file. Mobile devices, although compatible with Adobe Reader, will not display your pattern properly. Also, please note you do not have the “print layer option” on your mobile device. Please view and print your pattern from a computer.
All PDF patterns include detailed sewing instructions, printing instructions and the pattern pieces.
A layered pattern means you can select only the size/s you would like to print. Layers make it much less confusing to cut out the pattern, eliminate the need to trace, and save printer ink.
Click the LAYERS option to reveal the list of LAYERS available in the file. If you are having trouble finding your LAYERS, look on the left side of your screen and click on the 3 stacked squares icon. Click on the arrow next to the pattern name to expand the list of options. If an “eyeball” symbol appears next to the LAYER name, that LAYER is visible. If no “eyeball” is present, that LAYER is hidden; clicking the “eyeball” will turn the LAYER on or off. In addition to a LAYER labeled “Leave On,” turn on the LAYER with the size pattern you wish to print.
Scaling & Printing
Click the printer symbol. From the printing dialog box, set the page scale to “100%” or “Actual Size”. Set page orientation to “auto portrait/landscape”. Set page size to 8.5” x 11” (or A4) paper for home printing. Type in the desired page range to print. Refer to the PRINTING INDEX in your instructions to determine the pages you need to print for the instructions and pattern size.
You also have the option to print the pattern file at a print shop capable of printing 36” wide paper. Refer to the PRINT SHOP PRINTING INDEX in your instructions to know the correct page number based on the pattern size you wish to print. Pages are also available in A0 printing format for customers located outside the U.S. Refer to the INTERNATIONAL PRINTING INDEX for these page numbers.
You will also find a PATTERN ASSEMBLY diagram showing you how to layout the printed pages. The larger pattern pieces will cover multiple pages and need to be taped together aligning the spool symbol and circle with “match letters” at each corner on each page. It is helpful to trim or fold back the bottom and right margin of each page and overlap the pieces. Finish taping together and you're ready to sew!
Where can I find the link to download my pattern?
The download link can be found on the checkout confirmation page and in the email you will receive after purchasing. Read through the Access My Digital Content section above for further explanation.
Do I need an account to access my files?
You do not have to have an account to access to your downloads. However, it is recommended you do make an account as you can access your previous purchases in one location. To create an account, click on the person icon on the top right of the screen and click "Create an Account."
My computer crashed and I lost my files. How do I get my pattern?
If you have downloaded the file less than 5 times, you may access the link from the original email or your digital content library. If you have further trouble, contact us.
I only have an iPad. Can I print my pattern at home?
Printing PDF patterns requires exact accuracy in printing to be sure your garment will be sized correctly, and with iPads you are not able to change the print settings for a PDF file. You will need to print from a laptop or desktop computer with the proper software to open and print a PDF document. Our layered patterns require Adobe Reader to turn on and off layers before printing. Always make sure to check the 1” test square after printing.
What is included in the digital pattern file?
In each file, you will receive printing instructions, step-by-step pattern instructions and the pattern pieces.
Can I get a refund on my digital product?
For digital pattern and video purchases, all sales are final and may not be returned for a refund or exchanged for store credit.
