See below for some of our most asked questions. Please contact us if you need further assistance.
Are your colors accurate in photos?
While it is our desire to represent the most accurate color possible, we cannot guarantee a color match due to the variety of computer screens and monitors showing you the images. Please leave a note at checkout or call us with any questions.
Do you provide pleating services?
We do pleat fabric for bishops and straight yoke sections. Online we offer pleated inserts. If you desire other items to be pleated, call us at 615-292-1746 to arrange for your pleating services.
Do you send samples?
We do not send samples. You can order as little as an 1/8 yard by phone or 1 yard online.
I am interested in a digital product or video, how does that work?
We have digital downloads available for most of our patterns. See our digital download help and FAQs for more information.

Children's Corner Patterns
I need help sewing my Children's Corner Pattern! Where can I find assistance?
Many of our patterns have video lessons. These professional quality videos guide you through sewing a complete garment. If you are still in need of assistance, please contact us.
I have heard a certain pattern is discontinued, can you help me find it?
We love the classic patterns too! Unfortunately, we are usually the first to run out of pattern styles and do not have extras on hand. Many times you can find discontinued patterns at our many Brick & Mortar shops across the country. We also encourage you to try sites such as Etsy or Facebook groups for individuals who may be selling from their personal stash.
What size pattern should I sew?
While children come in many shapes and sizes, we have created a size measurement chart to help you identify which size pattern will best fit your model.
Would you redraft a pattern in a specific size?
Grading patterns is an expertise-level skill. We encourage you to work with your local shop and trained instructors to achieve these specific needs.
Where are my skirt patterns?
Many times, the instructions describe how large to cut that piece. It is shown on the cutting layout due to the size of the piece(s), to be sure you allow space. Children's Corner patterns does not have actual pattern pieces for the skirts. The instructions describe the size to cut for each skirt. This decision was made to maximize the number of pattern sizes offered in Katina.
Where is my neck/sleeve-band, placket, or sash pattern piece?
Many times, the instructions describe how large to cut that piece. It is shown on the cutting layout due to the size of the piece(s), to be sure you allow space.
Other pattern companies print pattern pieces on white paper, why are yours on tissue?
We love using tissue. It affords us the opportunity to offer each size and pattern piece on its own, without stacking them. When patterns are stacked, you must trace the size you are making. With our patterns on tissue, you open your pattern and cut out the size pieces you need and begin to sew! Tissue has served the pattern making industry for decades, and we agree with its superior quality.
What are some tips for downloading your digital patterns?
We are excited to offer a select number of our sewing patterns as digital downloads. In addition to this format, we will also remain committed to printing on tissue as has been our practice for our 40+ year history.
