What is a PDF sewing pattern? 
A PDF sewing pattern is a sewing pattern you purchase through an online store and is sent to your email. You then download the pattern and save it to your computer. Once downloaded, you can print the pattern pieces and tutorial from your home computer. No enlarging is needed.

Are the pattern pieces full size?
Yes, they are. All of the pattern pieces print at full size and do not require enlarging. Each pattern has a 1″ and 4cm square test box on each pattern piece. This allows you to be certain that the pattern is printing correctly. If the pattern piece is larger than one sheet of paper, you will pieces the required sheets together to get the entire pattern piece. Detailed instructions and pictures are included in each tutorial for printing and assembling the pattern pieces.

About Joan Mantini

After several years of being the Facebook page owner at Beginner Sewing, I noticed there was a desperate need to have a single go-to spot for members to be able to find answers to their common questions, get some useful tips & tricks, as well as find reputable places to purchase sewing products online. Taking my role as a trade publication editor by day, and combining it with my knowledge of frequently requested beginner sewing advice, I created An outlet that gives new sewists a free digital magazine geared for entry level sewing as an extra bonus!
