What are downloadable patterns?
Downloadable patterns are patterns, that are available in pdf-format and are printed on your home printer after downloading. What you need for printing a pattern and how to glue a pattern best, can be found on the page How-print at home patterns.

You want to print the pattern as 1: 1 print?
For different reasons, we decided to offer the sewing patterns only as downloadable PDF patterns. Nevertheless, we would like to make it as simple as possible for you and have added to each pattern a A0 file in width (841 mm / 33.1″), and any length that you can print at a Copyshop or at any online service provider.
