    I’m interested in the angel gowns. For some reason I can’t get it to save. Is there anyway you can email me the pattern please. Thank you. Punkie Spencer

    Hi Punkie, I’ve sent the link by email, please let me know if you have trouble opening it. If so, I can print and mail to you.

    Hello,
    I’ve printed out the 4 page pattern for Angel gowns. The 2″ test square is almost 1/4″ smaller than it should be. My printer doesn’t have an enlarge option for this pattern. Do you have any suggestions for increasing the sizes?

  4. 7pinedesign@comcast.net says:

    Hi Nancy! I’m sorry, I don’t know how to enlarge the pattern…..I just reprinted it to check the size and mine prints out fine. Can I send it to you in the mail? You can send me your address privately at 7pinedesign@comcast.net

    Hello , we have printed out your fantastic patterns for the angel gowns and they are simply perfect . Thank you so much for sharing this . We have decided to have the pattern pieces cut out of clear acrylic so that we can re use them again and again and can see the embellishments on the gowns as we place , mark and cut . The company who are cutting these for us have asked if we can supply them with a dxf file rather than a p.d.f . Do you have this as a dfx file or only as a pdf. ? would really appreciate any help or advise that you could give us with this . Many thanks , from Alice at Shannon Angel Sisters.

    Hi Alice, that sounds like a brilliant idea! I don’t have Autocad to create a dxf file, however my husband may be able to use another program such as Creo. He is travelling this week but has promised to look into it next week.
    I will keep you posted!

    Best regards, Janet

    I did not forget you Alice, I promise! Well it turns out that the file needs to be vectorized before it can be saved as a dxf….which means it needs to be transferred line by line into Illustrator. I thought that my child could do that for me but it’s very time-intensive….I hope to learn enough Illustrator to do it though…..

    Hi Janet!

    I adore your site – so much great info, especially as I finally begin to get ready to sew for my daughter (although the info has been great for my personal sewing as well, particularly regarding fitting pants)!

    I had been reading a page on your site that someone directly linked to, & when I finished that article, I tapped “Home” to go to your front page & see what’s new.

    Except…”Home” (http://7pinedesign.com/home/) directly links to this adorable handmade business card holder, and not to the main page of your site (http://7pinedesign.com/) – is this intentional? Or did something get mixed up along the way?

    I did eventually get to the main page by tapping on the “recent posts” thing on the sidebar & finding my way from there, but initially I thought you hadn’t updated in a while! ?

    Thank you so much for continuing to post all that you do to your site! I can only hope to have half as much knowledge to share with others in the future! ?

    Hi Brenda! Good point, I’ve tried and tried to get the home page to show latest posts….in fact when I go to WordPress “Settings” it does say that it’s set to latest posts
    (Front page displays: Your latest posts) ……but it does seem to have a glitch somewhere. I’ve researched this a dozen times on the web but all I can find is how to SET UP a static home page, not how to get rid of one. I’ll keep trying, I know how frustrating that can be to readers….it’s irritating to me as well. Thanks for being persistent I do appreciate it. Best, Janet

    Hi, Janet! I love reading about your process of truing patterns and fixing scaling issues. I just printed the kids’ version of Purl Soho’s City Gym Shorts and noticed that the jump between second largest and largest size is completely different than all the other sizes. I tried doing what you normally do, but I’m not sure if I’ve done it correctly, or if there is actually a reason for the change in scaling. Is there any chance you could give the pattern a quick one over? It’s a free, 4-page pdf on PS’ website. Thanks for all your awesome work! :) -Maddie

    Hi Maddie! Honestly I have no idea why the grade scale is different from size 10 to size 11….I just left a comment asking why though. I felt like asking why size 11 anyway (usually kids patterns skip size 11 and just go 10, 12) but I thought 1 question was enough. Anyway we’ll see what she says…sorry I don’t have the answer right away! Best, Janet

    Hello again Janet. I contacted you recently about having your design patterns cut out of clear polycarbon . I am delighted to say that the company who our group ,contacted about doing this managed to convert the p.d.f file you provided into a D.X.F file and produce the polycarbon sets for our group. Furthermore they provided us with 18 complete sets free of charge. We now have a team of 18 dressmakers who use these polycarbon patterns every day which makes life so much easier for us. Thank you for providing these fantastic patterns and the wonderful tutorial. On our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/shannonangelsisters/ there is a picture of the pattern sets if you would like to see them.
    Once again , Thank you for everything. From Alice and all of the team.

    Alice, that’s brilliant! I’ve updated the post to mention this, and encourage other groups to do the same!! Many thanks, Janet
