    Welcome!! This should help, you have to tape printer paper together:http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/printing-burdastyle-patterns-at-home

    Lower Right Grey Area Website Help the list has “size charts” in cm and inches you may want to print out both many patterns by Burdastyle are in centimeters. Size Charts are PDF.

    If purchasing or free look for sizes on the pattern some have a few/multi sizes marked.

    Hope this helps if not keep asking questions/

    you might also have to calibrate your printer. I have one printer that seems to shrink the vertically even when I will choose 100% size. I drew up a line measured in an application (illustrator or word) and printed it out and measured the line on the paper. Then I had to compare and adjust with a percentage when I printed.

    Measure the pattern after you print out and tape – you don’t want your pants too short.
