Terms and Conditions of Providing Made to Measure Sewing Pattern Drafting Service
To process an order for made to measure sewing pattern drafting service, we would need your custom measurements (typically height, bust girth, waist girth and hip girth) or the standard size in which you would like to receive the sewing pattern.
Payment can be done individually, or for a package of orders. If you purchase a package, a corresponding number of credits, named Sewcoins, is added to your account. Sewist.com will maintain the list of the orders received by the buyer. Resizing of a sewing pattern, i.e. each new sewing pattern for printout, is considered a new order.
The sewing patterns are processed based on industry standards and fit better than a sewing pattern from any magazine. Please make sure to convo us if you have any special requirements to the figure settings before processing the payment.
With each order, the buyer will receive:
Some listings also include:
- Photo or a photo-realistic drawing of a garment
- Recommendations on the choice of fabric
- List of extra accessories required
- List of parts
- Complete step-by-step sewing instructions in English
The sewing pattern can be provided as .PDF file in A4, A3, A2, A1, A0, Letter, Legal, Tabloid; Universal A4/Letter, ARCH A,B,C,D,E,E1, ANSI A,B,C,D,E.
No paper printouts will be mailed. The services are for providing digital file download only.
The sewing pattern is provided 'as is'.
For all sewing patterns, there is a possibility to order a free preview BEFORE a paid order. We highly encourage to get a free preview to make sure that the sewing pattern drafting service is completed without errors. The previews are provided on 10x10 cm grid, and include all markings and sewing pattern elements, so you may make an estimation if the fit is right and the width and the length of the fabric is correct.
It is always a good idea (with our sewing patterns, and with other sewing patterns as well) to make a test garment in cheap fabric first, and if this is not available, at least place a cut out sewing pattern to your body to estimate the size.
Please remember that the actual fitform of a clothes sewed depends on the material chosen and sewing skills, and cannot be considered a reason for refund.
Note on size:
The sewing patterns cannot be processed without exact measurements.
Note on fitting:
The sewing patterns may be for stretchy or not stretchy fabric and consequently they may have different fitform. Before purchase, you may get a free preview of any sewing pattern on our website on 10x10cm (4"x4") grid and see if it looks right.
Note on seam allowances:
By default seam allowances are included.
Note on fabric amount:
Your sewing pattern does not include the amount of fabric required. As the width of the fabric can be different, the fabric may have specific sewing pattern and the design on fabric may have direction, we suggest you use the online tool to calculate the length of fabric required.
NOTE ON LICENSE TO PRODUCE GARMENTS
You can use the sewing patterns made with Mix and Match Online Designer to sew garments and sell them to your clientele. You cannot resell the sewing patterns though.
