Sheer Stitchery Ltd. strives to making the art of sewing more accessible to all people. From the patterns we design to the video sewing classes.
Using both YouTube and the video Stitch Société classes we wanted to ensure you have access to multiple formats of instruction – regardless of how you learn best. All our sewing patterns include illustrated diagrams and written instructions to describe how to make a garment. We also provide access to the Sew Along video if you learn better by watching than reading instructions.
We are in the process of expanding all our patterns to include our new size range. Our newest patterns are graded from a Missy 2 though to a Curvy 36 with cup sizes A through H in every size range. We want to be as inclusive as we can when drafting our patterns.
If you are outside of our normal size range, send us an email and let us know! We are happy to help coach you in making adjustments to the current sizes or expanding our size range to include your measurements.
While we know that each design won’t suit everyone’s tastes, we aim to provide step-by-step fitting and pattern grading tutorials to better help you modify the sewing patterns to your style and body shape.
Makers and Sewists are a diverse group of people, and we strive to reflect that in our product and pattern imagery. We are in the process of re-drafting our patterns for our new size range and have a diversity of models (who all sew!). We are always on the hunt for models and patterns testers, so feel free to reach out to us to apply to become a model or pattern tester.
We are working hard behind the scenes to represent all Makers. We have outlined the steps we’ve taken so far but like many things in life, we’re still on the journey. There is always more that can be done, and we are working on making that happen. Bear in mind, we are a very small company and are doing everything we can to make your sewing experience the best it can be.
If you have any questions or suggestions about something more we can add, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact Katherine at firstname.lastname@example.org.

To start a return, you can contact us at email@example.com. If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.

Exceptions / non-returnable items
Certain types of items cannot be returned, like perishable goods (such as food, flowers, or plants), custom products (such as special orders or personalized items or anything made to measure), and personal care goods (such as beauty products) and paper patterns and any digital downloads.
