Subject: Help printing my first PDF pattern (wiksten tova) Date: 9/15/12 0:11 AM

Hi everyone, I'm printing my first PDF pattern which is the Wiksten Tova. How can I be certain that it has printed to the correct size? I can't find a test square to measure.

I printed it on A4, which the Wiksten site says is OK, but as it was printed on a network printer, I can't be certain no scaling has been applied.

Hoping someone can help! Thank you

I have made this recently - great casual shirt!

Is there anything in your settings you send to the printer that you can make sure is set to 100% - no scaling/ actual size.

Not too sure what to suggest otherwise

Are there any finished measurements given? You could compare those to the pattern pieces. If there's a marked bust point or something comparable perhaps someone else with the pattern could tell you what their pattern's measurements are, then you'll know if scaling has been applied. I'm not sure how you would fix it though, I've never used a network printer.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate your help. I did manage to find a workaround tho! I printed a page on another printer and made sure no scaling was applied, and matched this to the network-printed one.

I might email anyway just to see if there is a scaling box somewhere that i have missed

Many thanks
