Help:

A lovely Salme blouse e-pattern from Craftsy.

But the required 1" square comes our 1/16" short on 2 computers.

Does that matter? (Sunday Craftsy is NO help)

I see your concern. 1/16" may not sound like alot, but for every 16" this means you will be an entire inch short!

Are you printing your pdf "actual size"? Meaning, NO "fit to paper" or anything like that?

Yep, actual size, Catina, no 'fit to paper' or anything.

It must be our equipment as this slightly smaller square has been happening. If it is a bag or some such, I just use it as is but did think the 1/16" would make a difference on clothing.

Your posts have been so informative on other topics, love that maxi skirt with stripes. I have really appreciated them.

Any other ideas?

Is this a U.S. company? If not, could the difference be because of converting cm. to inches?

Let me see if I can do some math to see if it's possible to print a .pdf at a specific scale to compensate for that percentage we are missing. You are also welcome to send me the .pdf file and I can evaluate the scale and a possible workaround for you.

Oh wait... are you printing this from a browser window- or are you actually downloading the file and then printing it? I know with my own produced pdf's, the browser print really differs from the downloaded print.

Oh, heck, I'll be back in a few days to follow through.

A workshop beckons but I'd rather keep looking at this. I 'll just keep thinking about a 1" square and your ideas here instead of my professional commitments. Sigh.

In my experience, it's your printer that's causing the problem. Is it possible to print this pattern on a printer using authentic Adobe Postscript language? My HP printer drives me crazy with this problem while my Ricoh (postscript) prints the same file to perfect size. HTH

I have run into this with one European clothing pattern: The instructions said the test square should measure 10cm, or 4." However, 10cm is not 4"; it is 3.96"--about 1/8" short.

I guess they figured, 'Ah, close enough,' and for a loose, casual tee, I suppose it wouldn't be critical.

But the loss of 1/16" for every inch is significant. Have you contacted Salmé about this?

You can try contacting the pattern maker. I'm assuming Craftsy is just a middle man and wouldn't be able to answer you questions anyway.
