WHAT IS A DIGITAL PATTERN?
A digital pattern is sent to you as a pdf file. You will not receive a paper pattern, but will instead print the pattern yourself. You will automatically receive a link to the file instantly after payment. Please make sure your paypal e-mail address is up to date. For copyright reasons the pattern download is limited to 5 times and you will not be able to save the pattern onto your computer. Please make sure you have access to a printer at the time of purchasing. The pattern link is valid for a restricted time only. However, in case of any problems please contact us and we'll be happy to reactivate the link.
DO I NEED A SPECIAL PRINTER?
No, a regular printer with A4 or US letter size paper is all you need. The pattern is tiled to several sheets which will need to be taped together before cutting out the pattern. See here for detailed instructions on putting the pattern together. If you want to print your pattern in one piece at a copy shop instead, please contact us and we can send you a full size version.
WHAT SIZE SHOULD I CUT?
Our sizing is based on the European standard rather than American. You might find it a bit smaller that what you're used to. We strongly recommend that you measure yourself carefully before choosing your size from the size chart. We know that no one's body is a standard size and are therefore working on tutorials for adjusting the patterns to different cup sizes and body types. See our patternmaking tutorials here.
