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.
May I sell the items made from Lilac Lane patterns?
Absolutely! I am completely in favor of the indie community and helping to add to it where possible. If you have an at-home studio with items made solely by you, you may sell the items made from Lilac Lane patterns. 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.
If you do sell Lilac Lane items, please e-mail me a link to your shop. I would love to help promote your shop.
Can I sell Lilac Lane patterns?
Yes! Please e-mail me at mstramel [!at] melissastramel.com or call (785)443-0085. After receiving a copy of your resale license, I will send you a code for 50% off all patterns in the shop. The code will only be honored if a resale license has been received first.
How can I make an outfit from an e-pattern? My printer isn't that big.
E-patterns come as a pdf file. The file is downloaded and opened with Adobe Acrobat, a free program which reads pdf's. The pattern pages have corner grids which you match up and tape together to create the full sized pattern pieces. The document must be printed as "full sized" or "do not shrink" and definitely not as "shrink to fit." There are 1" boxes located throughout the pattern pieces for you to measure and make sure you printed the pattern at full size.
An e-pattern for an outfit will contain between 20 and 45 pattern pages. E-patterns for bags, dolls and doll clothing usually contain pattern pieces that do not have to be taped together.
