General pattern info
- Delivery time
The expected delivery time is indicated by size range in available sizes.
- Information on fabrics and haberdasheries
The information on fabrics and haberdasheries is listed on the back of the pattern envelope for most patterns. Often in 2 languages and in inches as well as in centimetres.
The information on fabrics and haberdasheries is offered in our shop as a .pdf file, so you can check what materials your need even before you order.
The information on fabrics and haberdasheries may also be in the sewing instructions. This may be especially hard to decipher in foreign patterns. Please get in touch with us if you need some help.
- Language of patterns
Most of the brands sold by Sewingpatterns.eu come with English instructions. Sometimes are Spanisch, German or French instructions included.
Every pattern lists the available language(s).
- Seam allowances
Foreign patterns often already include the seam allowance.
Cut the fabric tightly along the pattern. Please do not forget, because your clothing will become several sizes too big quite easily!
The standard seam allowance is 1.5 cm, but please check this in the sewing specifications. There may be differences between the different brands. We also list the seam allowance in the information with every pattern in the shop.
The available sizes are listed with every pattern. The pattern is available only in these sizes.
Every pattern often lists several sizes, enabling you to combine, we call these size sets. If the pattern is available in different size sets, then you can make a size choice with your order. Size sets are usually indicated with a letter code.
If all available sizes are on 1 pattern (a multi-size pattern), you cannot make a size choice.
- Level of difficulty
We indicate the level of difficulty with the pattern in stars. This is an indication, because it depends on personal experience. Beginning seamstresses are advised to choose the 1 or 2 star patterns.
Please take into account the language of the pattern! Any foreign language is not taken into account in the level of difficulty!
- * Very easy / beginners
- ** Easy / some experience
- *** Average / experienced
- **** Difficult / a lot of experience, professional
