Has anyone ever bought patterns online before like from McCalls and did it as a download rather than have it shipped?? If so how does it turn out?

I've done it with Kwik Sew patterns. I wouldn't do it for adult sizes, but it's okay for smaller sizes. You have to print the pattern off on your printer, tape it together, and then cut it out. I want to say that with the toddler pants pattern I bought that it was something like 30 pages for a pants and jacket pattern?

But I don't think I would buy McCalls that way--the adult sizes would be way too much paper to tape together. And their baby sizes are way off--I've made a 6 month size pattern from them before and it was more like a 18 month when compared to store bought clothing.

Wow, that was a lot of paper!! Hmm, guess that wouldn't be such a good buy after all. They are having a .99 sale through tomorrow. There are 4 patterns I was looking at getting, kid clothes and a doll pattern. The shipping was 3.95 for the first one and then .95 for each additional.

I know that places like JoAnns and Hobby Lobby will put patterns by McCalls, Simplicity, and Butterick on sale for $0.99. Then you wouldn't have to pay shipping and you'd get a proper pattern. My mom always stocks up on patterns when they're super cheap like that.

Yeah, that's what I normally do, but I have NO idea where it is around here LOL!! I did find a Ben Franklin Crafts store in the shopping center with Krogers, but haven't had a chance to go in there yet.

I didn't even realize you could download them like that. I used to sew a LOT, but that was way before my introduction to computers.
