Sewing a simple summer dress using a downloadable sewing pattern

There is nothing more instant-gratification than downloading a sewing pattern, taping it up, cutting it out and sewing it that same day. And when the sewing pattern is a fun and easy to wear summer dress, even better!

We'll show you some tricks to dealing with printers that don't print borders on downloadable sewing patterns and how to compensate for that so you get the correct size. If you're off by even 1/8" or 2mm on every piece, that can mean INCHES of being off when the garment is sewn.
