Womens PDF sewing pattern. May be printed at home on 38x A4 pages or at a copy shop on 2x AO pages (there will be a charge per page for printing). 12 pages of detailed assembly instructions with diagrams, including layouts for 115cm(45") and 150cm(60") fabrics.
Loopholes is a longline straight dress with cap sleeve or sleeveless options. The back dress has a centre back seam. The Front has princess seams and a round neckline. If made in knit fabric the neckline and sleeveless armhole are finished with self banding. Made in woven the neckline and sleeveless armhole are finished with either self bias or separately purchased prepared bias tape. At the waistline, to the left and right, a 3-dimensional “loophole” or tubular shape is constructed within the vertical panels. The feature creates an element of sculptural interest. The loopholes can be formed on the outside of the garment and will resemble tubes rather than being open holes. When the loopholes are constructed inside the garment on the outside they become open round holes large enough to easily pass a hand through. The lower front skirt below the hipline has fullness which allows the garment swing and movement. The hemline at the back is about 15cm(6”) longer than the front.
Medium and Small fittings are printed on the pattern page.

PDF sewing patterns
NO REFUNDS ON DIGITAL PRODUCTS
It’s not my policy to give refunds to purchasers who realise after buying that they can’t open the file on their particular device, for example a chromebook, ipad or tablet. Pattern files will open on a PC as they are saved in .pdf format which is read onscreen in Adobe Reader.
From a PC the PDF pattern and instruction booklets can be printed on a home printer that is connected to the PC. If you don’t have a home printer there are other options such as emailing the file directly to a copy shop or saving it on a memory stick (usb) and taking it there for printing. AO files are large paper sheets that allow the pattern to be printed without the necessity of taping multiple A4 pages together. AO files can only be printed at a copy shop on a wide format specialist printer and the business will charge a price per page for this service.
Please be aware that some browser devices such as Chromebooks, tablets and ipads have limited functionality and may not run the programs necessary for opening the file format. Sometimes apps can be installed that facilitate the necessary programs on those devices and this something you need to know in advance before buying your PDF pattern.
You can still buy a pattern even if you only have a browsing device if you’re prepared to do one of these options
• email the file to your own PC, a friends, one in a workplace or even in a public library to access the file. In a public library you'll be able to print to their printer for a price per page.
• email the file directly to a copy shop and have them print either the AO or PDF versions.
