Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Seam Allowance?
All seam allowances on Lil Luxe Collection patterns are 3/8" (1cm) unless otherwise stated in the tutorial. For your convenience, seam Allowances are worked into the pattern so there is no need for you to add seam allowances to the pattern pieces.
Are there bundle discount codes?
Yes! Please see our available codes & discounts HERE.
Where are the print from home pattern pages?
Print from home pattern pages are now located at the end of the tutorial. The single page large format pdf prints are A0 and US plan print files. More information about printing your pattern files can be found HERE.
Need additional pattern help?

Why was there a website switch?
Website hosting changes and monthly price increases were taking effect on our old server that would limit what I could do and offer on the website. With new technology, websites, apps, etc. changing all the time, business owners need to be able to keep up and sometimes have to make decisions for what is best for their company and so I took the leap and switched my website over to Shopify. I paid for everyone's account and purchase history to be brought over but unfortunately that did not create new download links.
Notifications were made on the website, newsletter and across all of our social medias about the switch prior to the switch. I then spent nearly half a year offering everyone who missed the notifications and/or didn't have their patterns backed up, the file request to reactivate their patterns FOR FREE. A time during which I was not able to release new patterns therefore sacrificing my family's livelihood, and furthermore taking time away from my children who stayed indoors during their summer vacation so I could work diligently on customer accounts. I am not a robot or a corporation with people working for me...I am one person, a full time work from home mom with 4 kids in my household, trying to do the best I can and trying to please as many customers as I can. Unfortunately I can't please everyone and I have to make decisions and create deadlines if I am to have a successful business.
I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
What's new on the site/patterns?
For purchases made on our new server I am able to update everyone's accounts automatically with new file features, pattern add ons, etc., just by updating the file on my end. I was not able to do this before unless I paid an outrageous monthly charge or by doing it manually for every purchaser. For example all patterns now have A0 and US plan print files, by adding these files to the pattern files on our new server, everyone automatically gets them...at NO COST. If I wanted to add a skirt file to a blouse pattern, I can do that and give everyone who purchased the blouse access to the skirt add on automatically via their account.
Customizing the site has never been easier! I don't need to spend hours learning code or updating apps on the site to keep it running smoothly and looking great. This means I have more time to design and bring you new patterns!
The new website works seamlessly on desktop and mobile devices with new features such as log in Facebook or Amazon for example. That means if you're already logged into your social media account, you don't have to remember your password to login to your Lil Luxe account.
Most importantly, our information is now more secure. With just a few techy tricks people were able to access our entire collection of patterns from the world wide web without even paying. Our new server is much more secure with less chances of being hacked. Furthermore, our photos can not be stolen or downloaded from our site for unauthorized use.
I understand the switch has been frustrating for some...I'm sure just as much as it has been for me and believe me when I say I was not jumping for joy with all the additional work and upset customers it created but I can not regret the reasons I chose to switch servers. Even though the cost to run the website on a monthly basis is more than what it was before, I feel confident in all the work I have put into the new website and am happy with what I can now offer and continue to build on as technology changes and as Lil Luxe Collection evolves.
