PDF Patterns

Q.  What’s the deal with the PDF/Print-at-Home patterns?
A.  The PDF Patterns are downloadable documents that allow you to print the pattern from your home computer.  The pattern and instructions come in a series of multi-page PDF documents.  After printing, each page must be trimmed and taped together before the pattern pieces can be cut out (see illustration below).  Patterns require the following number of pages to print, depending on if all included styles are printed, or just one:
  -Girls 5-8: 45-75 sheets
  -Girls 10-16: 55-100 sheets
  -Ladies 6-12: 55-100 sheets
  -Ladies 14-20: 64-115 sheets

Q.  I purchased a pattern.  Why won’t my download links work?
A.  Download links are active for 3 days, so the most common reason is that your download has expired.  We encourage customers to download all files promptly upon purchase.

Q.  I have access to a large-scale printer/my friend works in a print shop.
A.  For copyright reasons, large-scale digital copies of patterns are not available.  Digital patterns are only available as PDFs that have been divided to print on Letter or A4 paper as in the illustration above.
