I believe it’s not just the negative ease of the fabric that drives the difference. The pants have an elastic waist, so the relaxed measurement includes the elastic at rest. The waist will expand significantly when worn due to the elastic and the knit fabric.2 weeks ago
There’s a tutorial that will show you exactly how to do that here:1 month ago
Ha! I love the tag you put in the collar. I’m thinking this particular shirt was made with more swear words that most!
So glad you figured out the issue, and thanks for providing an update.8 months ago
All our PDF patterns are created so that the text cannot be copied and pasted.
If you send an email with your order number to firstname.lastname@example.org we should be able to provide you some help with this issue.8 months ago

No, unfortunately, the creation of layers is something that needs to be done when the original pattern is created. There’s no way to take an existing file and add layers to it. The file needs to be completely remade from the ground up. That’s why we’re creating new patterns with layers (it’s a completely different process to develop the pattern so that the layers can be produced) but not going back to remake older patterns.
The good thing about a PDF, though, is that you don’t really need to trace. You can just print a new version and cut the new size that you want.1 year ago
There isn’t a list available. It’s something we have started doing within the last couple years. Older styles will not have the PDF layers built in, but newer styles will.
In the full description of the pattern, you’ll see a sentence mentioning that the pattern has layers to print only your select size if the pattern has been produced that way.
I hope that helps.1 year ago
Phyllis, you will cut two of piece number 13 with your fabric folded. (See the cutting layout.) That will give you pieces for both sleeves.1 year ago
Well, it appears that the error correction contained an error! So sorry about that. The correct length measurements for the bodysuit are as follows:
- 0-3 M: 14″
- 3-6 M: 15 1/2″
- 6-12 M: 17″
- 12-18 M: 18 1/2″
- 18-24 M: 20″
The previously issued errata for this has been updated.1 year ago
Yes, you are right! There is an error in the length measurement. We’re so sorry about that. We’ll issue an errata and update the pattern shortly. But in the meantime, the correct length measurements for the bodysuit should be:

- 0-3 M: 15.75″
- 3-6 M: 17.75″
- 6-12M: 18.75″
- 12-18M: 20″
- 18-24M: 21.5″
Last year we upgraded our PDF delivery module. The upgrade provides a more robust and flexible method for delivering PDFs, but one of the things we lost was that single consolidated list of all PDFs you had ever purchased that used to appear on your order history page. (It’s been gone for almost a year now, and this is the first question about it we’ve had. I guess that confirms that it wasn’t something that too many people were using….)
You can still see your past PDF purchases by opening each of the orders listed on your order history page, but there’s no longer the ability to see all PDFs purchased together in one screen.
Also note, orders placed before the upgrade will need to have links updated before you can download again. But you’ll get instructions for how to handle that if you try to download a PDF using an old-style download link.1 year ago
We haven’t made that pattern available in digital format. When you start to make your alterations, it is actually quite important that you work with traced pattern pieces rather than the original or with copies printed from a PDF. This is because you will want to have only the lines and markings for the size you are going to work with when you start modifying it. You will have a much easier time making the alterations and sewing (and you will get much better results) if you work from a traced pattern piece.

Thanks for your understanding. It really should be called out more clearly than that, so I’ve just added a box to the first page of the tiled pages. Anyone who likes can use their download link to obtain this updated copy. There’s been no change to instructions or pattern pieces.
