All sewing patterns available for purchase come in paper sizes A4 and Letter suitable for printing on any home printer as well as a large format version for printing at a print or copy shop.
While printing your pattern at home and assembling it allows you start your project without delay you might find it more convenient to have it printed at your local print/copy shop or an online print service like for example FedEx Office.
The large format pattern file is max. 90cm/3ft wide and as long as the pattern requires (approx. 4m for a bata de cola pattern, less for other patterns).
For both online printing service or local print shop you need to give the following print instructions:
- print on 90cm / 3ft wide paper
- use the cheapest paper available (NO poster weight or glossy paper)
- DO NOT scale to fit. Print ACTUAL SIZE
Once you have your pattern printed on one large sheet of paper all you have left to do is cut out the pieces following the outer lines and you’re ready to go.
