Pattern Updates

We have recently changed the way we make e-patterns and wanted to send you this update. I think you will find the change refreshing: grids to mark each page, a clear place to tape pages together, and small graphics of what the final, taped-together pattern will look like.Every single one of our outfit patterns has been updated! Every. Single. One.

Here’s a look at the new pattern pages in all Lilac Lane Patterns. If there is more than one page to assemble the piece, you get a grid which butts up right next to the grid on the next page. You get a graphic of the assembled piece (see the top left above). You also get a diagram showing where each particular page goes within the pieces of the pattern. Of course, each page is numbered and clearly marked with what the pattern piece is. In addition, our newest patterns have each size separated instead of nested so that you only print your size.

Secondly, many of the instruction pages have been updated with further clarifications and photographs. You now get the benefit of both illustrations and photos for each step of your sewing. While not updated on every pattern, if we felt it could be confusing, we updated.

And now, to reintroduce you to Lollipops and Gumdrops! This pattern is so cute, but to make it just a bit more fitted, with curved the side seams. The results are delightful, and these two models are the cutest.

Why do we think these are PERFECT Christmas dresses? Just check them out with shirts underneath or a sweater on top. They will easily make the transition from winter to spring.

If you have previously purchased an e-pattern (PDF sewing pattern) from Lilac Lane on Etsy, then the update has been e-mailed to you. However, if you changed your e-mail since you bought it, go ahead and e-mail us a copy of your receipt and we will send it to your new e-mail address. Don’t know how to find your receipt? Just log in to Etsy. Under the YOU tab, there is a category called PURCHASES AND REVIEWS. Find your receipt and either e-mail it to us or convo us. Either way, we will update you.
