Can I purchase patterns and pattern books at Spotlight?

Yes, you can. Spotlight offers a wide range of paper patterns for all types of sewing projects including clothing for men, women and kids, as well as baby and toddler patterns, and special patterns for pets (clothing, toys and baskets), soft toys, play items and fancy-dress costumes. You can also find pattern books in the range for sewing projects including dressmaking and quilting, and many home projects.

What is included in dressmaking patterns?

Contents of patterns can vary depending on the item, but usually you will receive a number of sheets of thin tracing paper with all the necessary pieces of the pattern marked out on them, as well as advice on the amount and type of fabric needed for the garment, any extras or accessories needed (for instance buttons, zips, interfacing fabric, etc.) and step-by-step instructions on how to cut, pin and sew the item you have chosen.

Is it easy to use a paper pattern?

That depends a bit on the pattern you have chosen. If you are new to sewing or dressmaking, you may want to start with something relatively simple such as an A-line skirt or a sleeveless top to get familiar with the process. It is important to always cut all pieces of your pattern along the same colour or type of line, as there are usually several sizes provided on the same pattern. Other tricks include making sure you have the pieces laid out in the right direction – especially important with patterned fabrics – and that you cut pieces out as many times as stated on the pattern. Often, patterns will contain helpful diagrams that show you how to place the pattern pieces on the fabric for best results.

What else is included in the range of patterns and books?

If you love vintage clothing, you should check out the fabulous vintage dressmaking pattern books available here at Spotlight. With great illustrations and clear instructions, you will be able to create stylish cocktail dresses, petticoat skirts and elegant evening wear.

Does Spotlight offer homeware patterns too?

Yes, you will be amazed at the variety of patterns on offer, ranging from a simple cushion cover to intricate roman blinds and other window treatments, as well as many useful storage items, play sets for kids, and great everyday items such as cushion covers, placemats, kitchen aprons and more. Also included are patterns for Christmas decorations, and lots of cute baby essentials including bedding, window treatments and storage items.

What else do I need to know about this range?

As well as many standard clothing patterns for babies, toddlers, kids, men and women, the Spotlight pattern collections also includes plus-size patterns, petite patterns and maternity wear patterns, and many patterns for special clothing such as workwear, theatre and fancy-dress costumes and more. Craft patterns are also included, from laptop bags to stuffed toys and doll’s outfits.

Remember that Spotlight also stocks all your sewing essentials and a huge range of colourful fabrics for all types of sewing projects including dressmaking, interiors, crafts and more.
