PDF patterns include all instructions and tiled pattern pieces, and can be printed at home on either letter or A4 size paper. Print out the pattern page that contains the calibration square first. Measure the 2” (5cm) calibration square to make sure the pattern was printed to the right size. If the calibration is off you may need to adjust your printer settings. Cut or fold around the border around the pattern tiles and tape or glue the pieces together using the makers on each edge as a guide.
As of April 2020 all new patterns will be released with size layering. Patterns which include size layering allow you to print only the sizes you want OR all sizes at once.
We are also working through are catalog of patterns to update existing patterns with size layering. If a pattern includes size layering this will be clearly stated in the product information. All layered files will be labelled as such. All products which do not explicity state that they include layering do not, though they may be updated in the future.

We’re so grateful for all the help we get from the sewing community testing patterns before they are released. There are no special requirements for pattern testing, you don’t need to be an expert seamstress, have a blog or jump through any hoops. Just fill out the form to test women's patterns here. Pattern testers are chosen fairly randomly, using a cross-section of sizes and expertise for each pattern, but we do try to work our way through the list to make sure as many people get a turn as possible.
