    It’s somewhat difficult to swallow that this is listed as a “novice” pattern when the instructions are so very bad. I’m a beginner, but I’ve done a couple projects already, and that is the ONLY reason I was able to fill in the blanks with this pattern. There is no diagram to properly lay out the pattern on your fabric for cutting. The pattern (eventually) informs you that you need elastic, but doesn’t say how much or what size or type. Hemming the collar and sleeves is to be done with bias that that yet again was never mentioned before the pattern tells you to put it on, and the pattern doesn’t even bother to tell you HOW to put it on. So yes, this is a simple pattern, but if it were someone’s first pattern, they’d have no idea how to complete it simply because the instructions aren’t complete. Why is Burda charging for an incomplete pattern?

    I printed this pattern a couple years ago and had no problems. I’m trying to print it again and am running into scaling issues. My print settings are where they’re supposed to be (no fit to page, no scaling, etc) but the pattern is still printing scaled down (test square measures just over 3 inches). Pages that are oriented vertically in the PDF are printing with 3 inches of space on both the bottom and right side of the paper. Pages that are oriented horizontally in the PDF are printing 2 to a page. Any ideas as to why I’m running into this issue?
