FAQ Why are your patterns so long?

My goal is to write clear and concise size inclusive patterns in a way that leaves little room for second guessing. I would much rather give you extra information that you may not need, than leave you frustrated because the pattern wasn’t clear enough. 

I do my best to include printing instructions so you only print the pages you need for your size.

Most of the pages in my patterns are supplements to the instructions themselves. They all include a schematic and size chart, a list of abbreviations, explanations of special techniques including links to video tutorials, and often include guidance for modifications.

If the pattern contains charts it often has both written and charted instructions. In addition, almost all of my garment patterns include optional bust darts. I do all the math for you, but it results in a few pages of tables at the end of the pattern.
