I did not want to have a PDF pattern!
We do not sell printed patterns and we do not offer refunds on digital patterns, except as noted in our FAQ. The patterns found on our web site are only available as digital downloads from our web site and are not available as printed patterns sold in stores. We try to make it as clear as possible that the patterns are downloadable.
Here is a link to helpful information about downloading, printing and assembling our patterns: https://www.burdastyle.com/guide-downloadable-pattern
If you cannot print your pattern at home, we suggest that you put the pattern onto a flash drive and take it to a local print shop. Most large office supply stores and Fedex locations offer this service. Some of them also allow you to upload files via their web sites. A quick local Internet search should produce some results for you.
I think that there is a defect on my pattern. What do I do?
I would like a refund for my pattern purchase!
Refunds are only issued on a case-by-case basis for extenuating circumstances. If your pattern does not download, does not download completely, or is otherwise broken, please contact us as soon as possible. Refunds for any reason but technical issues with the download of a pattern are issued at our sole discretion, but may include:
-You placed your first order with us and did not understand the pattern was a digital download and you have not yet downloaded the pattern.
-You have purchased the same pattern more than one time
Please submit a request through our Contact Form.

How do I know if my PDF pattern is the right size?
You must check whether your printer settings have not changed the scale of the document while printing. To do this, start by printing only the sheet containing the test square and check that it measures10x10cm. Then, you can print all of the pages and assemble them. You can check our guide just here!
Do I need to add a seam allowance?
