Why aren’t all the sewing patterns in the database available to buy?
> Not all patterns are available to buy for a number of reasons: they are out of print or we don’t yet stock the patterns from that designer. We are adding new patterns available to buy each week and hope to eventually sell every pattern in the database!

What makes a good review?
> Reviews are really helpful for our community of sewing enthusiasts. Here are a few ideas of what you could include.
To rate the pattern by the star system, one star is the lowest rating and 5 stars is the highest rating.
Firstly the practical things … What fabric did you use? Were the instructions easy to follow? Was the pattern simple to use? Did you make any fitting alterations?
It would also be good to know … Did your finished project look how you expected it to? What did you like and dislike? What difficulty level would you rate the pattern? Would you recommend it to a friend? And if you don’t mind sharing, your size and how you would describe your body shape (but we understand if you do!)
