Always do a practice garment first.

Although the patterns have been thoroughly tested and standardized, everyone’s body and preferences are different. It’s also good to practice the finishes so your final garment is well executed.

Always take measurements before selecting your size, it is much easier to take in a garment than make a whole new one, if the garment is too small.

Please note Novae Zelandiae patterns are not for commercial use, please contact if you would like wide print format.


FAQs

Within minutes your pattern is accessible via the "You" tab at the top right hand corner of the page or via your email account, under "Purchases & Reviews." The pattern will be presented as a PDF which you can save for future use or print out to start creating. Open the PDF. Make sure the print setting is set to print "Actual size" not shrink or scale down. The pattern is compatible with Letter, Legal and A4 sizes. Print the test page and measure the square, checking it is the same measurement as stated. If this matches - print the PDF labeled "PRINT..." followed by the name of the design. Next all you need to do is line up the pages, tape together and cut out.

On the last page of the pattern is a layout diagram, this is a miniature version of how the pages will look once all lined up. All pages are lettered and numbered. Detailed instructions are also included in the Introduction PDF. Once the pages are lined up the pattern is joined together with tape and the pattern pieces are cut out using the sizing lines. The pattern is now ready to be used, to create your first design.

As I live in the United Kingdom, I try and source locally. Organic, GOTS, fair-trade and recycled fabrics are available from the following small businesses: The Offset Warehouse www.offsetwarehouse.com/about-us Charlie Ross as well as offering amazing quality fabrics, also writes two blogs about sustainable clothing. Always see samples first and try and buy over 3 metres for warehouse pricing. The Organic Fabric Biz www.organiccotton.biz Fantastic company in Wales, Phil the owner writes a very amusing newsletter. As above always request samples first and do a bulk order to save on postage.

Synthetic fabrics such as polyester, are forms of plastic and can take 20 - 200 years to decompose. Polyester, Rayon, Acrylic, Acetate,Triacetate, Nylon and anything anti wrinkle, static free or stain resistant are all processed with heavy chemicals. Cotton is actually very damaging to the environment, when it is commercially farmed. Non holistic toxic fertilizers and the large amounts of water are used to process the fibre. The True Cost is an amazing documentary about the effects of the clothing industry on our environment. Look for organic or certified bamboos and cottons, which have been processed ethically and environmentally.

When deciding to purchase anything, I research where the product is made, what it is made from and what social and environmental damage is created from producing this product. Local products, made locally, from local sustainable raw materials are ideal, but difficult to find. The below certifications are brilliant: GOTS Global Organic Textile Standard Oeko-Tex 100 Organic Certified Fair Trade Certified Please keep in mind that these certifications are often costly for small businesses. Novae Zelandiae believes in creating small changes, to continually be educated and be adaptable. Do what you can, use what you already have.
