Sewing Pattern Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A PDF SEWING PATTERN?
A PDF sewing pattern is a sewing pattern that is sent to you via email and is written tutorial - style, which is great for beginners through advanced. This means each pattern is written in easy to understand, step-by-step directions and includes plenty of clear pictures. This makes them perfect for even a beginner sewer since you can actually "see" the item coming together in the pictures. No more guessing or struggling with the directions on paper patterns. Multiple sizes are included in each pattern and you do not have to worry about tracing or refolding your pattern back into the original package like you do for paper patterns. PDF patterns can be printed, saved to your computer and re-printed any time you need, in any size you need.
WHAT DO I NEED TO PRINT A PDF SEWING PATTERN?
You need an email address, a computer and a printer. You will instantly receive your PDF sewing pattern via email. You simply click on the pattern to open it, save it and then print it on your printer. You need Adobe reader to open the pattern and it can be downloaded for free on your computer if you do not have it yet. If you have a laptop you can simply bring your laptop over to where you sew and follow along step-by-step from the laptop screen rather than printing it. What a paper saver!
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO SEW A SEAMINGLY SMITTEN SEWING PATTERN?
You will need: a sewing machine, thread, pins, scissors, a ruler, an iron, tailor's chalk or a fabric marker and other notions specific to the pattern (such as elastic, buttons or elastic thread)

Absolutely! These Seamingly Smitten sewing patterns are designed with the beginner in mind! They include step-by-step directions with a picture for each step, which helps even a beginner sewer to create a boutique and chic outift for herself or her little one.

I simple ask that you include in your tag that it was made with a Seamingly Smitten sewing pattern. No sharing of patterns, please.
CAN AN ITEM BE RETURNED?
Due to the nature of this item there is a no return policy. Once you have purchased the PDF sewing pattern there are no refunds or returns allowed.
DO YOU SELL THE FINISHED PRODUCTS PICTURED?
On occassion I will sell items that are "Ready to Ship" and they will be placed in my etsy shop or on this site. My primary focus is to create sewing patterns to help others create these boutique items, so my personal time sewing for others is limited. I am always striving to create the next pattern that you love so my time is usually filled with sketching, designing, pattern testing and simply sewing in my studio to try out new designs to share with you!
