FAQs

What features are included in your PDF patterns?

Many of our patterns feature layers. With Layered patterns, you can print just the sizes you want. For a tutorial on how to print layers, check out this BLOG POST. Size charts, finished lengths and fabric requirements are all included. The pattern pieces have the cutting charts on them as well. Tips and notes specific to that pattern along with fabric recommendations are provided as well. I also started including A0 copy shop files with patterns. I am also going back through older patterns and updating them with A0 files. As I do these, I will be emailing everyone who purchased that pattern with the new files.

How do I tape my patterns together?

All pages overlap 1”. You take your page and overlap them the 1”, matching up the lines.

What are A0 files?

A0 files are large format printing files. They have all the pattern pieces on one board so you can take/ send the file to your favorite print shop and have it printed on one large page. A few of my favorite place to print online are: Blue Prints Printing (this is the cheaper place if you plan on printing out a few pages). For single prints, your local Fedex or Office Depot are great options as well.

Are seam allowances included on the pattern pieces?

Yes. All seam allowances are included in the pattern pieces. Seam allowances are 3/8” unless otherwise noted.

I never received my pattern, now what?

Be sure to check your spam folder. The download link is on your order confirmation page. Click the highlighted link and your pattern will download. You can also log into your account using the email address you checked out with and download the pattern there. If you don’t receive the confirmation email, you can contact me using the contact form or email me at  Katie@TheSimpleLifeCompany.com

My 1″ test square isn’t printing correctly, how do I fix this?

Be sure your printer settings have the auto rotate box is ticked and the scaling is set to 100% or none. Every printer is different and I wish I could solve this issue for everyone. If you can’t get the test square to print correctly, you will have to call your printer manufacturer’s helpline.

What are Get the Look Kits?

These kits feature SLPco patterns along with amazing fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics. I curate these looks (some looks are curated by my favorite bloggers/sewing friends as well) to take the stress and hassle out of sewing. This is a great way to build your pattern and fabric stash at an amazing discount. The patterns are emailed instantly and the fabric ships within 24 hours.

Can I sell products made from your patterns?

Absolutely. As long as you are sewing the garment, you can sell it. If you want to manufacture a product with my patterns, you can email me about obtaining a license. Katie@TheSimpleLifeCompany.com

Where can I ask for help with a step in a pattern?

The Facebook fan group is the fastest way to get an answer to your question. You can join the FB group here. You can also email me at Katie@TheSimpleLifeCompany.com but please allow 24 hours for a response.

Where can I find you on social media?

Can I use your photos?

If you are looking to use photos to sell a similar/same garment, then no, you cannot use my photos. Also, please be respectful and do not use any testers’ photos. You will need to use your own photos. If you want to share my photos on social media to promote a fabric shop or something other than selling the garment, please tag Simple Life Patterns

I am new to sewing, what patterns do you recommend starting with?

We have a lot of beginner sewing patterns. I feel the “Ayda” dress is the easiest pattern out there and great for a new sewer. Or start with a freebie! There are several to start with. All you have to do is join our Fan Group page to get the coupon code.

Do you offer paper patterns?
