Can't wait to sew this skirt! The purchasing went smoothly, the pattern downloaded and printed perfectly. The instructions are clearly written. I had a question on the download process (this was the first time I'd purchased a downloadable pattern) and shop owner responded immediately and was very helpful! I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another pattern from her in the future!
Stepalica Patterns - patterns with a twist!
Welcome to the Stepalica Patterns shop!
Stepalica Patterns is an independent sewing patterns publisher, located in Belgrade, Serbia.
The name of the shop is inherited from my blog Stepalica (www.stepalica.com), which I have been writing bilingually (in English and Serbian) from 2010. "Stepalica" means "the girl who stitches" in Serbian, which, you've guessed is me, as I am a passionate seamstress and pattern drafter. Stepalica Patterns evolved from my love of sewing and pattern drafting and from the blog which has documented my journey with the patterns so far.
All the patterns are designed having a dynamic and edgy young woman as an inspiration. I am very fond of interesting details on garments, and you can expect to find in my shop patterns with an unusual construction, seam placement and embellishment.
Stepalica patterns are intended for seamstresses with some sewing experience and intermediate to expert sewing skills. I tend to make garments with lots of pattern pieces, so be ready for an adventurous journey with my patterns! If you're up for a challenge, than Stepalica Patterns are just the right thing for you!

* PayPal via 2checkout (www.2co.com)
* Credit / Debit cards via 2checkout : Visa, Dina Card, Master Card, American Express, Discover
PayPal doesn't support selling option for my country yet, so I use 2Checkout payment collector instead.
When making a purchase order, select "Other" in the payment options. I have to manually issue an invoice for you, via 2Checkout system. The invoice contains a link where you can complete the purchase - it's a page on 2Checkout's website. Once you fill in your billing information, you can chose to pay either by using PayPal account or your credit card. You don't have to register to 2checkout and you won't be charged any additional fees. It's simple, fast and secure. Once the payment is completed, I will enable the pattern download on my Etsy store. I monitor the state of my Etsy store several times a day, and I get instant emails whenever any change is made, so the purchase is usually completed within the same day. Sometimes, due to my daily duties and a time zone differences, it takes more than a day to complete the purchase.
In the future the shop may expand it's accepted payment options.
Once the pattern is paid for, you will get an access to the download link.
Note that each pattern is consisted of two PDF files, and you need to download them both in order to get the whole product.
