Am I missing something? I just bought McCalls 5974 in the printable pattern version.
I've printed my pages, stuck them together into large pattern sheets, and cut out the individual pattern pieces.
As per the pattern instructions, I expected to have two bodice front pattern pieces, one for views A and B (piece number 1) the other for views C and D (piece number 6). The puzzling thing is that I have four of each!
Each pattern piece has the full size range, so it's not that one of the pieces have sizes 18 and 20, the other with 22 and 24 and so on.
Instead, I seem to have four identical pattern piece number 1s and four identical pattern piece number 6s. Am I missing something? Is such duplication normal? Seems like an awful waste of paper if it is...
On a side note, I'm really looking forward to making this dress!
