Downloading and constructing a sewing pattern can sure be frustrating! and messy and come out a weird size. Not to mention use a lot of your printer ink and paper and tape (read as $$). On the other hand...they usually cost less, and they are like instant gratification for a sewist- see it and sew it!

Tips and practical guidelines to take out some of the guesswork and a lot of the stress! Printer settings, laying out the pages, fitting the pattern pieces together, when to cut, paper choices for tracing out a working pattern... Click the web/URL button above to read my how-to on pattern downloads.

Thanks for the link. The tip to make sure the "fit to scale or paper size" is turned off on the printer is crucial.
