    YES!!! Thanks so much for these simple and precise instructions on how the cut out and tape together the pattern pieces. I have purchased several patterns and have even printed them out, but I have not put any together yet. But now that I have access to these page-by page instructions – and I even printed these out – I feel like I am finally ready to take one on!!! I know which one I want to do and I even have the fabric for it! SO, I am going for it and I’m going to have fun doing it and it is going to come out absolutely fantastic!!!!! Thank you once again!!!!!!!!!!

    how do you print out a pattern that is free? all is says is download instructions. or does that mean we have to make the pattern for the outfit ourselves since it is free?

    The printing instructions are for American size paper. We use A4 in Australia – how do you adjust the printing for A4 paper size?

      Each pattern piece is smaller than the paper (hence cutting it out in step 4) and they fit on A4. I just printed one out (in England) and it worked out great- just make sure you don’t scale to fit paper! Print out the piece with the test square first if you are unsure.

    Thank you so much for this informative tutorial! I was on the cusp of printing out and cutting up a PDF pattern for the very first time when I happened to come across this! …I particularly LOVE the suggestion to (Step 4) to keep one side of the margin on each page, to provide sturdiness. This makes so much sense, and I probably would have done it AFTER botching a few pieces, or maybe an entire row! :o) Thanks again!

    Thank you! I recently printed out my first pattern at home, and it was so exciting to do this project for the first time. I think I am hooked now! Reading this today helped me to know that I did do it the right way.
