Frequently asked questions:
How quickly will my pattern come?
Paper patterns are mailed on a daily basis. Normally, they are sent by first class mail the day after ordering. E-patterns are delivered with a link for you to download the pattern. An e-pattern link is normally sent to you the same day you order but always within 3 days.

This looks complicated. Can I really sew it?
All patterns are labeled with a skill level. Beginner patterns are the simplest. Advanced beginner require motivation and some sewing experience. Intermediate patterns are a bit harder. Expert patterns are difficult.

All patterns contain a glossary, metric conversion chart and detailed instructions with illustrations to guide you through each step. Lilac Lane patterns have been praised for their thorough instructions.

Absolutely! I am completely in favor of the indie community and helping to add to it where possible.

No manufacturing of the items is allowed and you may not copy or duplicate the pattern in any way. Each person who sews the pattern is required to buy their own copy.
