How to download and print a PDF sewing pattern?

You will receive your pattern directly in your mailbox.

  • Download the file and start printing the pattern, making sure you are in "Actual size" or "Custom scale: 100%".
  • Once the printing is finished, check the dimensions of the 5cm segment on one of the pattern sheets.

Assembling the sewing pattern

  • Lay all the sheets flat in the order of the assembly plan.
  • Like a puzzle, match up the lines using the overview on one of the sheets.
  • Join the edge of the pages and tape them together. Complete the outlines with a pen.
  • Once all the pages are well joined together, choose the size you want to make and cut out.

That's it!

Before you start, we advise you to read the explanatory booklet carefully to familiarise yourself with the model!
