I have downloaded the pattern for the Lace Strapless Dress and am very excited to finally use a certain fabric I have been too precious to cut up……BUT

The pattern is in PDF and automatically shrinks to fit the page.
What settings do I need to change so that the pattern prints in “real size”??
Please help, I’m itching to sew and looked for ages to find the exact pattern I wanted!

    Hi mrsoneill,

    I apologize for the confusion. Depending on your computer settings, sometimes it is fine to “fit” the document. Meg and I were discussing the language of our instructions just yesterday to include this.

    I recommend printing out the test square first. This way you can measure the square for accurate sizing before you print the entire document. Find the page with the test square when in preview and print just this page. Your test square should be 10 cm X 10 cm.

    I hope this helps.
