Frequently Asked Questions
What is included with my pattern?
All patterns include a materials list with recommended fabrics, yardage chart, size chart, and a tutorial with step-by-step instructions that include either professional drawings or photos. All pattern pieces are drawing in Adobe Illustrated and layered by size. The sizes are color coded, but you can print the pattern in a particular size in black and white if you prefer.
When will I receive my pattern?
You will be able to instantly download your patterns after you complete your purchase. You can also access this link at anytime from the “My Account” tab at the top of the site. The download link will also be sent to the email address linked to your account. If you don’t receive an email be sure to check your spam folder.
How do I print my pattern?
Once you download the PDF file save it to your computer. Open the pattern in Adobe Acrobat. Patterns are formatted to print on US letter (8.5 x 11″). Print at 100% with no scaling. If you are an international buyer, please contact me and I can send you the pattern formatted for A4 printers. You can also contact me for a copy shop pattern.
Can I sell items made with 5 out of 4 Patterns?
Yes, definitely! You are more than welcome to sell items made with my patterns on a small scale. You may not use 5 out of 4 Patterns for mass production. I would appreciate credit for the design.
Are seam allowances included?
Yes. The seam allowance is already included on all pattern pieces and is typically 3/8″. Check the sewing guidelines section for the seam allowance for each pattern.
Where can I get help?
The 5 out of 4 Facebook Group is a great resource. You can also contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you ever have sales?
All patterns are on sale the first week they are available. As I begin to have more patterns for sale, I plan on offering them as build-your-own bundles at a discounted price. Make sure you join the Facebook group for notification of sales.
