Printing your PDF patterns
Once you have purchased and downloaded your file, the next step is printing out your pattern.
The most important thing about printing a PDF pattern is to make sure that the print scale is correct. Many printers automatically scale a document so that it fits to the paper size. If you allowed this to happen with a sewing pattern it would mean that the pattern pieces would be the wrong size.
Follow these steps to ensure that your printing is correct.
I have separated the files into A4 paper size and US letter size and templates and tutorials. This way, you can easily find the files you need.
Open the files you wish to print. I recommend using Adobe Acrobat, you can download it for free here.
Under "page size & handling" select "actual size" and then click print.
Another factor you can control is the printing quality. Choosing an option like “draft” or “fast” will use less ink and "print on both sides of paper" will use less paper.
Once printed check the test box, this should measure 1".
