This pattern is amazing. It goes together nicely. The video is extremely helpful. The finished shirt is finished beautiful inside and out! Thank you!
This is a fantastic dress pattern! The videos make it so easy to follow and the directions are well explained. I easily modified it into a Cinderella dress so it works great as a base for any princess dress!
The best pattern that I've ever used since I began sewing. Easy to use and you can understand the direction so much better than the american patterns, the fit is amazing.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do I get the patterns and the sewing course?
Yes! You get the patterns in letter size format for the USA and Canada and DIN A4 format for the rest of the world.
2. Your patterns come in lots of files. Why is that?
When I taught sewing courses the standard multi-size patterns were difficult to use. There wasn't enough space and they were very flimsy. So I practically did what others call 'layering' only I went a step further and separated the pattern sizes. Now each size has its own file, preventing a lot of paper waste. Just print the size you need.
3.I bought my pattern on a different site, do I still get access to the course here ?
Absolutely! I can add you manually to the course. Just pop me an email with the platform name and email used and I will find your order. Just give me a day to do it :) If you want to use mainly the academy then please also purchase here, to make things quicker.
3.Why do you have two sites: The academy and frocksandfrolics.com?
Frocksandfrolics.com has all the bells and whistles of a great store and blog. It has great checkout options and fabulous integrations but the patterns can only be downloaded for 30 days via a link. The academy is our member site which will keep your patterns indefinitely. I automatically add you after purchase. An email is send to you to set up a password and off you go, start learning and sharing.
4. This site is in English, do you still do German instructions?
Yes! Unfortunately most platforms don't offer multiple language sites. So I kept the landing pages in English but added all the German content to the course. This includes the patterns and all the videos.
5. Do you offer beginner sewing courses?
I am working on several singing and dancing courses now, which will combine a number of patterns and give you many basic sewing skills. For now please enroll in our free Sewing 101 course for all the basics.
10. Do you do pattern drafting courses?
We are working on those for you too. We will include courses for grading, corset making and bridal. We will also offer pattern blocks at frocksandfrolics.com. In October 2018 we will officially start our advanced courses!
