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.

    I usually print the pattern on letter size paper and deselect the ‘scale to fit’ or ‘fit to page’ option to get the exact pattern. and, I ever try to make the un-fit pattern once (when I forgot to de-select the ‘scale to fit’ option, and the square test is bigger than 10 cm square), the result was a little loose, but not a problem for a loose clothes model. I did a little adjustment for the neck and arm area, but never try on the fit clothes model.

    and the finish garment measurement is available on the pattern itself. i.e: for the hip finish measurement, is available listed on the pattern, around hip-line area.
