Can I adjust the measurements?

We understand how important it is for your clothes to fit perfectly, and this is only more important when you’re going somewhere special. Because of this, all our special occasion sewing patterns can be adjusted as required, allowing you to create an outfit which fits you perfectly.

Can I customise the sewing patterns for special occasions to suit my style?

Our team works hard to make all our sewing patterns as easy as possible to customise, allowing you to tweak the design to your heart’s content. We love seeing what tweaks you come up with and how you improve our patterns.

I’m a beginner, are these special occasion sewing patterns right for me?

All our sewing patterns come with easy-to-follow instructions which are designed to be as simple as possible to follow for anyone, no matter your experience with sewing.
By design, many of our special occasion patterns are more elaborate than alternative patterns, making them more difficult of a task for sewing beginners than others. Simple instructions make it much easier than otherwise to create elaborate outfits, however, and we do offer a number of patterns which have been specifically designed for beginners.
