How does a digital sewing pattern work?
Makyla Creates sewing patterns are in PDF format and delivered within a zip folder. After purchasing a pattern, it’s instantly available to download and save onto your desktop or laptop computer. You will also receive an email with links to download the pattern files.
There are 2 options for printing: A home printing version – where the patterns can be printed out as tiles onto A4 or Letter size paper. These pages will need to be trimmed and assembled together using glue or sticky tape. You do not need a special type of printer for this. Or, a large format version that can be taken to a copy shop. These are usually A0 size.
You can find information on how to print and assemble the A4/Letter size pattern on the pattern itself. Open the PDF file and follow the instructions on the first page.
I ordered a pattern but I can’t find where it’s been sent?
After purchasing a pattern, an email with a link to download the pattern will be sent instantly to the email address you provided at checkout. If you can’t see it in your inbox, it may have gone straight to your junk/spam folder.
If you paid using Paypal, the email may have been sent to the address linked to your Paypal account. If you discover afterward that it’s an email you no longer use, please get in touch with our customer service team – [email protected]
You can also stay on the page after ordering your pattern, and the files will be ready to download immediately.
I can’t open the zip folder?
All digital patterns are delivered within a zip folder to save on file space. If you have a newer smartphone like an iPhone 12 you will be able to open the zip folders in the files application. Unfortunately, some smartphones, iPads, and tablets cannot open zip folders, so it is recommended to save and open your files on either a desktop or laptop computer.
Can I use your patterns for my own sewing business?
These sewing patterns are for personal use only. They’re not to be used for commercial purposes. If you would like to use one of our sewing patterns for commercial use please get in touch with us at [email protected]

Definitely! Please just make sure every student purchases their own copy. Or if you’re buying in bulk, you’re welcome to get in touch for a wholesale rate. Email me at [email protected] to discuss.

Do you have sales?
I provide a sign up discount code when you join my email list. We have occasional sales but not very often! So if you’d like to stay in the loop on new pattern releases and receive our sign up discount, please sign up for my newsletter on the home page of our website.
What is your size range?
It varies between patterns. Check the Shop section of my website as each pattern will have the relevant size chart pictured in the images. I am slowly updating the Dua Dress, Blouse One, and Rachel Skirt to include sizes 20 and 22. You can find our size chart here https://makylacreates.com/sizing/.
Do you have printed patterns?
Not at this stage but it is something we would like to provide in the near future. If you are interested in printed patterns please get in touch at [email protected] we would love to know!
Do the patterns include seam allowance?
Yes. Every pattern includes seam allowance and the amount will be noted within the instructions and/or on the sewing pattern.
