How to order patterns

Testimonials

  • I just wanted to say thank you for providing access to so many sewing patterns that will actually fit me! Why has this not been done earlier! I just today made your pattern and it fit perfectly. This really does change everything in sewing for me as I have had such a hard time getting patterns to fit me, and having to adjust everything after the initial sewing, or making muslins.

  • These patterns are now my most favorite patterns to work with so far. I've been professionally sewing for 20 years. In the past if my plus size clients wanted any custom clothing that was not boxy I had to upgrade a smaller pattern or to draft the pattern myself which took a lot of time and I had to charge my clients more, but using your patterns I can still make my custom clothing affordable. Using your patterns for this client has now increased my sale from one custom outfit to 5. Thank you, thank you!

  • I just wanted to say that this custom pattern worked out perfectly! I am using it for a pageant interview outfit for Mrs. Nebraska. She had an idea for a dress, but was unavailable for me to measure her. My coworker took the measurements, and the sloper fit perfectly. I will definitely use your patterns again and again. Thank you so much for your help!

  • I just wanted to let you know how delighted I am to have found your site. I’ve just made my first jacket from one of your patterns. I found it easy, it went together like a dream, and fits beautifully. I can’t wait to make more!

  • I just have to tell you that my clients are going nuts over your patterns. I have downloaded a few of your patterns and making some clothing for myself and one other custom client. While my alteration clients are coming in to get their ready made clothes altered they are seeing the clothing from the patterns I purchased take shape and all are saying "WOW!" I want some custom clothing. I plan on making more clothing from your patterns to show off on mannequins for my alter clients to see as they come in.

  • I just wanted to let you know how absolutely shocked I was when I sewed a muslin up, of a blouse I just purchased from you with custom measurements and it fit absolutely perfect!!!! I am so flabbergasted that there was absolutely no adjustments necessary and believe me I always have to alter patterns. I have no use for any other commercial patterns. You have a customer for life. Thank you for this brilliant concept of custom measurements per pattern!!

  • I made up a blouse from the first pattern I got (a free one) and I am very happy with it - it fits perfectly! Thank you.

    Heather

  • I am a little apprehensive of purchasing several patterns to achieve the look I am wanting and mixing them together for fear of different pattern pieces not fitting in with each other (I am new to sewing so simplest is best!) I have made a couple of items from your site using your patterns and so far have been very impressed with how simple it has been to do, thank you!

    Jackie

  • To be able to have confidence in your cutting and sewing and not have to worry about fit is enormously helpful. I am so excited about trying more of your patterns. So thank you for everything you are doing on this website. I am so glad I found you.

  • Thank you very much for sending the pattern. In the Czech Republic, I have not yet encountered such a customized adjustment for free. Great!
