PDF sewing patterns can be printed on a home printer on either A4 or letter sized paper. The full sized pattern is cut up into a grid so after printing you sticky tape it back together. Once you have done it the first time you will see just how easy it is.
Printing must be done at 100% scale to get the sizing correct. Some printers word this slightly differently.
Check your printer settings for
- Scale 100%
- Scale Original
- Scale None
- Make sure there is no tick in the box fit to scale as this makes it slightly smaller.
Once you have printed the test page you will see a little test square you can compare to see if your scale has printed correctly.
