My order says it is cancelled?
Q: I have just placed an order but it says it is cancelled but the money has gone out of my account. What can I do?
A: Some times if there is a longer than normal amount of time between ordering and payment my website gets confused and thinks that the order has not been completed. I will see this and change your order to completed when I check my emails, however if you require this to be done instantly after you purchase your pattern, then please ask for help in my group – tagging me, Lydia Persson.
Are your patterns printed or PDF?
All my patterns are available in PDF format on my website.
A variety of styles are available in printed format through For Fabric Sake (online and in store) and the Wellington Sewing Centre (instore only).
What do I get when I buy a pattern?
My PDF patterns include a digital tutorial using photos and easy to understand language and tiled Pattern Pieces which can be printed at home on either letter or A4 size paper. A0 files are included in the newest patterns, and I am slowly adding them to my older patterns.
Your PDF patterns will be available for download immediately after purchase. Please ensure that you save your pattern files to your computer to save it for future use.
How do I put my pattern together?
Once you have printed off your pages, take page1 and place it in front of you. Now take page2 and trim down the outside of the grey line, on the left hand side only and butt it up to the grey line on the right hand side of page1. Do the same until you finish the row.
When you start a new row you need to trim along the top, of the first page, and the top and left hand side of the following pages.
Keep going until you are finished.
If you have a large window use this to tape your pattern together without having to trim anything.
What currency is the website in?
The default is set to USD but you can change the currency to NZD or AUS but using the currency convertor at the top of the page.
Due to the nature of PDF sewing patterns and digital delivery, refunds and exchanges are not possible, and all sales are final.
If you require a replacement due to an error on our part, please contact me at [email protected] within a week purchase.
In the case of a double purchase I am willing to replace with another pattern of the same price. Please contact me at [email protected] if this occurs.
