Zadie dress - digital patterns purchased before 24 March 2017 and printed patterns
The top corner seam allowances on the front skirt and pocket facing should be a slightly different shape. Don't worry about changing the pattern - but when you lay the front bodice over the front skirt, match the waistlines up at the centre notches and pivot points. Little corners of the front skirt waistline seam allowance will peep out by 0.5cm (1/4in) - just ignore them or snip them off!
As it's a teeny discrepancy and knit fabric is stretchy, don't worry if you don't notice the extra seam allowance - your dress should still come together nicely.
Cleo pinafore - purchased 3 - 8 November 2016 only
All customers affected have been emailed diagrams of quick fixes plus a replacement pattern piece. All other patterns have been amended.
The front facing is 1.5cm (5/8in) wider than it should be. Please redraw the centre front seam (the one with the 'place on fold' arrow) 1.5cm (5/8in) inside the current line. If you've already cut your fabric, don't worry - cut the front facing in half along the centre and stitch the two pieces together using a 15mm (5/8in) seam allowance (the same way you join the two front dress pieces) to eliminate the excess.
If you're cutting the flared skirt out of 115cm (45in) wide fabric, three pieces can be cut with the pattern face up, one face down.
