What is PDF Pattern
A sewing pattern is a template from which the pieces of a garment are traced onto fabric before being cut out and assembled. Sirena Patterns are digital files that come as multi-page PDF printouts. A PDF-pattern is a full scale sewing pattern, divided into individual pages, printed and then taped together to create a full pattern sheet. We offer two paper sizes Letter (8.5″ x 11″) and A4.
With a PDF-pattern you can access your patterns instantly from the comfort of your home. They are less costly, and you don’t need to worry about shipping and handling fees. You can also print them as many times as you wish and make amendments without losing the original pattern.
You need Acrobat Reader or similar software to open PDF files. You can download Acrobat Reader for free here.
All our sewing patterns come with seam allowances included, unless stated on the pattern itself.
How do I find my size?
To find the size that fits you, please refer to our standard sizing charts. If you are between two sizes, I recommend you to choose the largest one and fit the garment for adjustments.
I puchased a pattern, now what?
To download a pattern you have purchased go to the My Purchases section in your Profile where you can clic the file and download it in your computer.
Can I sell garments that I've made using Sirena Patterns?
Our patterns are for personal home use only. Commercial use of our patterns is strictly forbidden. However, sometimes we do grant licenses for certain patterns, so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are, for example; a professional seamstress.
You can make as many as you want for yourself or for gifts. It does NOT entitle you to print or distribute the pattern to others, nor to sell garments made from the pattern.

What is a zip file?
Our patterns come in a ZIP format. A ZIP is an archive format widely used on the internet. ZIP files are data containers. They store one or several files in a compressed form, allowing you to download several files in one folder. After you have downloaded a ZIP file, you need to unpack its contents in order to access them. A number of different free software packages will do this, including 7-zip or Win zip. Click on the name to download them.
