I have used this site for many years for downloadable custom sized sewing patterns for men, women and children... All sizes XS to XXXL It is very easy to use and a lot of good skirts and shirts are free. Other patterns are very reasonable, less than $3 and often less. Based in Geneva, good English instructions, Suits the experienced sewer but beginners can start quickly with some styles. I'm very confident recommending this site without reservation.

Tip for consumers: Start with free patterns to check your fit and use the fit adjustments until the avatar looks like you...

You can search for every pattern in the catalogue with ease, on Butterick and McCall some patterns are available as download. No more lost pieces. Take your time and shop when you want. Even now with the exchange rate very poor it is cheaper to buy patterns when discounted directly from the US than in Australia in a a shop.

The Big 4 pattern companies are in for a shock when they see what is happening. I found this site a while back and was not sure what was going on, there is Leko in Russia, Lekala in Geneva and now Bootstrap in the USA. The user-friendliness and social aspect of Bootstrap fashion is captivating. The desgn app puts me in the drivers seat. For year I have wasted days searching for fabric, Bootstrap lets me upload images of my fabric stash and design with that. Doors are opening and dresses are being envisaged with my own fabric... I have to do this... more fabric than I can poke a stick at... what can I do with it? Well now I can try out looks before I waste time, effort and fabric. I am 5'11" and very flat chested... no more adjustments. They are all done... I love to tweak style lines and improve the look but I hate being reminded about what my bustline lacks, both in ready to wear and the usual patterns. I often take a standard pattern through multiple test garments but with Lakela and Bootrap fashion I make just one, the changes are small and obvious.
