What do I get when I order a downloadable pdf pattern from SEWNZ?

You will receive a separate PDF digital file for the pattern style and size mentioned in the product title.


Each file contains the following:
- a cover page, instructional pages, diagram or photos steps of construction, general information and a test square page,
- several pattern pages that you need to print (a diagram of the number of pages to print will be shown on the test square page),
- once printed the pattern pages need to be overlapped & cello-taped together, every page has a 2-3 cm overlap and stars to  

   line up with other pages.

- once pieced together you will have your completed pattern from which you can draft a single size pattern using see through

   vilene (thin interfacing).


How do I print my pattern?

  1. Save the pattern file onto your computer,

  2. Open the pattern file in Adobe Acrobat Reader 10 (this is a free Adobe program)

  3. Select pages to print ALL, 

  4. Select page size & handling SIZE, 

  5. Select ACTUAL SIZE, or NO SCALING/NONE or 100%

  6. Select orientation AUTO PORTRAIT/LANDSCAPE, 

  7. Select grayscale ink (if desired) and print.

Does SEWNZ sell hard copy paper patterns?

Which size do I choose?

There is a blog on Best fit, have a read then look for the size guide on your pattern to decide which size will best fit your child.


Refunds and Exchanges

As the SEWNZ patterns are a digital product, it means you have already received the pattern as they are instantly downloadable/accessible, they are not returnable once purchased.

Therefore I am unable to accept returns, make refunds or exchanges.

However if you are having an issue with the patterns please let me know so we can solve the issue together.
Please check the size of the pattern before you buy, as there can be 2 of the same patterns, one smaller sizes, one larger (examples are the Easy Neck T-shirt and the Pinafore dress).
