Lekala.co is your best resource for sewing patterns.
There are patterns for every gender, occasion and age. Most importantly, they are tailor made for your very size!
Unlike other systems, Lekala.co only requires the number of standard size or your basic measurements to process your custom pattern.
The payment is accepted by PayPal. All orders should be prepaid in order to be processed.
To process an order, we would need your custom measurements (typically height, bust girth, waist girth and hip girth) or the standard size in which you would like to receive the pattern.
For Package orders, Lekala.co will maintain the list of the orders received by the buyer. Resizing of a pattern, i.e. each new pattern for printout, is considered a new order.
The patterns are processed based on industry standards and fit better than a pattern from any magazine. Please make sure to convo us if you have any special requirements to the figure settings before processing the payment.
Lekala.co provides you with the ultimate sewing pattern kit. With each order, the buyer will receive:
- Photo or a photo-realistic drawing of a garment
- Technical drawing of a garment
- Recommendations on the choice of fabric
- List of extra accessories required
- List of parts
- Complete step-by-step instructions in English
- 3D photo of a mannequin modelled according to the size provided
- Printable PDF with layout overview and real-size parts on several pages. You may need to cut out the parts and glue them together for cutout
The pattern can be provided as .PDF file in A4, A3, A2, A1, A0, Letter, Legal, Tabloid, or PDF of the mentioned width, a .PLT file of the mentioned width, a .DXF file or as a .LEK file.
No paper printouts will be mailed. The listings are for file download only.
The pattern is provided 'as is'. We always aim at providing the tip top service and will send you most complete instructions so that your garment turns out excellent. Please remember that the actual fitting of a clothes sewed depends on the material chosen and sewer skills, and cannot be considered a reason for refund.
Note on size:
the patterns cannot be processed without exact measurements.
Note on fitting:
The patterns may be for stretchy or not stretchy fabric and consequently they may have different ease. Before purchase, you may get a preview of any pattern on our website www.lekala.co on 10x10cm (4"x4") grid and see if it fits right.
Note on seam allowances:
by default seam allowances are not included.
Note on fabric amount:
your pattern does not include the amount of fabric required. As the width of the fabric can be different, the fabric may have specific pattern and the pattern may have direction, I do not find it safe to give recommendations on the length of the fabric to purchase. It also depends on the size you order. I'll be happy to send a smaller view of details on 10x10cm (4"x4") grid or help you with calculations after purchase.
Thanks very much, Lisa. I absolutely HATE taping together patterns - ha! - but I recently discovered a couple of PDF printing (online) places, and the Lekalas are so reasonably priced, I don't even feel like it costs me that much to have them printed off. (I DID tape this one together, though ... I figure it won't KILL me to tape together just a top - ha!) Anyway, I'm really excited to try some other Lekalas now. Thanks again.
