I downloaded a pattern this morning. In the magazine instructions it says that when printing to print at the actual size. The instructions go on to say to print on letter size paper. I set up my printer to do just that and printed the page with the test square, it measured 10.5 cm on each side. I went back and change the printer settings and under re-sizing options I de-selected ‘actual size’ and selected ‘print doc on’ and then letter size paper, I also de-selected ‘scale to fit’. I printed the page with the test square and the square now measures 10 cm x 10 cm but now I’m wondering if this is the right scale and I can’t check because there are no finished garment measurements included with the pattern or in the magazine. Two questions need an answer:
Is the pattern printed in the right scale
Why are finished garment measurements not included with the patterns.
