How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.
Shipping + Returns
American customers: Packages in the US are shipped via USPS First Class and Priority Mail twice a week. Please allow 8 to 12 days for your parcel to arrive.
Canadian customers: Your orders are sent via Canada Post letter or parcel post. Please allow 8 to 12 days for your parcel to arrive, and wait up to 3 weeks before contacting us.
International customers: Estimated delivery dates are listed below the shipping price when you checkout. We have two possible services. International First Class is for packages under 2 kilos and takes approx 10-40 days to arrive depending on your location. International Priority is a bit faster and should arrive at your destination in approx 8-20 days. Both services include tracking for *most* destinations.
Most shipping services we offer come with a tracking number. This will be sent to you via email you once the order has been processed in our warehouse.
Given the huge volume of mail and the challenges that the pandemic, holiday season, and environmental conditions impose on the performance of the mail service, we ask you to please be patient with the delivery of your packages, and get in touch after 3 weeks for Canadian and US shipments, and 6 weeks for international shipments.
If the above mentioned waiting times have elapsed, please message us about your delay. We’ll be happy to work with you to figure out a solution.

I’ve made many pairs of Jenny’s and several pairs of Persephone pants using the hardware from these kits. Until recently, the hardware was easy to install and stayed securely in place (although I’ve learned from experience not to run these through the dryer.)
I purchased a kit recently, and had so much difficulty installing. The shanks on the majority bent with one tap of the hammer; some managed to engage with the button, but are largely misaligned and wonky. Many didn’t engage at all, but simply bent, rendering them useless.
Although the product was disappointing, customer service has been exemplary throughout this ordeal. I’ve exchanged photos and details over email and the support team at Closet Core sent me a new kit and are continuing to evaluate their product. 1 star for the kit; 5 for the staff.
The antique brass hardware from Core Fabrics is classic and beautiful. I made a pair of gold denim overalls with white topstitching and the brass color was a perfect complement . I had no trouble with buttons but used a press to install them. The kit is very reasonably priced and includes extra buttons .
The hardware is beautiful and sturdy, except the buttons, which didn’t fit well onto the posts. Every one of my buttons (8!) is misaligned, with the button shank bent out of line. It seemed like the posts were just a little too big for the button shank. I tested with another brand I had on hand and it worked fine, and I’ve set jeans buttons plenty of times in the past without this much trouble. And, yes, I watched the video on Closet Core’s blog after I struggled with the first. Now I’m just waiting for my poorly set buttons to pop off with wear and then I’ll replace them with what I had on hand. I also had to use pliers on the buckle to squeeze the narrow part in a bit more so it would actually snap when buckling to the bib button. That was easy compared to the button setting fiasco. It just seemed like the set pieces didn’t really fit together.
Hi Rachel, We're so sorry to hear about the buttons. Thank you for letting us know about this issue though. We'll forward your feedback to our customer service and they'll be in touch shortly. Best regards
The buckles worked out great for my Jenny overalls. The buttons proved to be a bit fiddly, I am glad there was an extra in the pack.
This hardware is amazing! It's reasonably priced and sturdy. Super easy to install as well! Beautiful color, I highly recommend it!
This hardware came in just the color I wanted and I was glad it came in a convenient format (it's hard to find the whole kit with the right number of buttons and sliders elsewhere). I really appreciated that it came with an extra button as I messed up putting one of them in. I didn't use the Jenny pattern; I drafted my own and I used a thick wool for the straps but was still able to get them in the sliders without too much trouble. Also, I loved that the instructions for installing the sliders and buttons were available free on the Closet Core website, since I wasn't using an overalls pattern. Thanks Closet Core, really pleased overall!
