6 Reading the Pattern Envelope


Commercial patterns are packaged in a pattern envelope. The envelope has specific information for size, fabric recommendations and the amount needed, notions, level of difficulty, front and back pictures or sketches and design variations. On the front of the pattern envelope is the company or designer name, pattern number, front views of the design variations, and some times size range.
