Sharing copyrighted digital files is illegal. While this can be confusing to some seamstresses new to the pdf world, you have to keep in mind that a pdf pattern is a digital good. By sharing it, you are replicating a copyrighted item and giving it to another person. If it were a paper pattern, you would no longer have the original pattern becasue there is only the one copy that you purchased.
Also keep in mind that most pdf pattern makers are small businesses. I sell pdf sewing patterns as a way to feed my family. My sales directly puts food in my children’s bellies. With that being said, if you love BSD patterns, we would love it if you would tell everyone you know that has a passion about sewing so they can come to love our patterns too.
