    It would be helpful if these links were clickable. It took me a lot of effort to find the “Create a Print-at-Home Pattern PDF” Technique.

    Hm, an easy way around it: I simply printed an A4 sheet from a burdastye-pattern, copied the margains to a blank piece of paper and made load of photocopies of the new paper-template. When I want to upload a pattern I simply fold the margains to the back of the margained pieces of paper and sticky-tape them into a big sheet where I lay out my pattern-pieces and trace them. Then I make all necessary marks and instructions (ie number the pages and mark up how to place them). When I’m done I remove the sticky-tape, unfold the margains and scan the separate pages. Piece of cake and seems to work just as well as the long re-scaling-excersise that used to be in the BS-instructions!

    Well, heck! I’ve been translating old (I mean really old!) patterns from an 1840 Workwoman’s Guide to today’s measurements (ie. nails to inches, etc.) and thought I’d share. The caps, hats, chemises, petticoats, and shirts are actually fun and period authentic. I’ve tried three times to upload a simple Poor Woman’s Night-Cap pattern and it’s a no go—and a headache. The process was extremely unwieldy, especially as I’ve put all the directions in one pdf file and the pattern in another. I followed all the directions above to the letter, but sheesh! I don’t need this aggravation. I’m afraid I’ll be looking for another site that would like these patterns.
