Yes they sure do! All our patterns include 1.5cm (5/8") seam allowance unless otherwise specified in the sewing instructions.
Each pattern size has a sew and cut line. We include a sew lines as they are handy for alterations and hacks! And we have to hack a pattern!
Yes they sure do! Here are some key features of our projector files...
LARGE MARGINS 50cm/25” The pattern layout is on a single page with large margins, which allows ample space for scrolling and positioning the pattern anywhere on your fabric.
OPENED OUT CUT ON FOLD PIECES Each COF pattern piece is opened with a center fold, marked by a dashed line. This allows you to choose between cutting on folded fabric or a single layer.
DUPLICATED & FLIPPED PAIRS The pattern includes separate pieces for left and right pairs, so you won't need to flip your fabric if you're cutting on a single layer. If you're cutting on folded fabric, the pattern information is only displayed on one of the pairs, so you'll know which pieces to cut.
DIRECTIONAL PATTERNS All pattern pieces and grainlines follow the same orientation for easy cutting.
LARGE TEXT & THICKER PATTERN LINES All the pattern text is extra large and the pattern lines are solid and thick.
SIZE KEY INCLUDED The size key is included within the file, so you can select the correct size/s without referring to the info doc.
BLACK BACKGROUND OPTION A black background layer is included to assist in viewing pattern lines when cutting on light-coloured fabrics.
CALIBRATION & GRIDS Included in the files are separate layers for grids and calibration (see info to the left) & a white calibration layer can be turned on for a clear background.
Yes you sure do! When you download our patterns you will receive both the MISSES 4-18 and CURVY 16-30 size ranges.

If you are having trouble opening the ZIP (but usually ZIPs open without issue) it is usually due to the fact the file has not downloaded correctly/fully.
This often happens if your download has been interrupted or the internet dropped out during the download. In this case we suggest re-downloading the file and make sure you are connected to the wifi if possible.
It's always best to download the file onto a desktop and mobiles and IPads can cause issues.
As we have bodice cup sizes and four different file types it means there are alot of files in each pattern!
For easy organisation and to ensure you get all the files when you buy the pattern we zip them up!
Absolutely! But please make sure that you credit madelabel.co and link back to the page.
