This listing is for a downloaded PDF sewing pattern, NOT a finished product. Your download should immediately pop up after purchasing, but you can also log into your account at any time and download the package again. Your downloads will include a professionally drawn pattern with trimless pages (now with diamond corner markers) and layers.
The pattern pieces included are formatted for 8.5×11, A4 (typically outside of the US), and A0 printers. We’ve even included a projector file so all of the pieces are on one page! Please remember to NOT use the A4 pattern unless you are located outside of the US and own an A4 printer and A4 paper. The A0 pattern is specifically designed for large format printing. You have permission from 5 out of 4 Patterns to have this pattern printed at your local copy shop.
The separate tutorial download includes hyperlinks to help you navigate to whichever options you’re interested in doing. It also includes professionally drawn images for each tutorial step as well as pictures for steps that might be a little tricky. We take great pains to make the tutorial as clear as possible!
The Alpha Bra, Tank, and Dress pattern includes sizes XXS-5XL. The size chart and fabric requirements are listed in the last image.

I used this pattern to make a super cute tankini bathing suit top. I was able to buy coloured elastic for the straps to coordinate with my fabric. The instructions were great and I love the fit. I also used the Shenanigans skort pattern in the shortest length with the added ruffle to make the swim bottoms. Both are excellent patterns.
