How do I build my PDF pattern? 2017-05-30T23:12:24+00:00

All Designer Stitch patterns include layers that allow you to choose the sizes that you wish on both the Print-at-Home and AO Copy Shop PDF.
Please refer to the size chart given at the beginning of these instructions as my garments are “true-to-size”.

  1. In Adobe Reader, click on the layers icon which is on the left hand side of the black navigation bar.
  2. Click on the eyeball to turn the size layers on or off. If you are grading multiple sizes ( please refer to the size chart), make sure to have displayed (turned on) all the sizes you need. Or you can just print your single size if you are standard to the sizing chart.
  3. If you are printing at a copy shop, be sure to specify which size/layers you want them to print.
  4. Make sure before printing that your scaling is turned “off” in the printer’s dialogue box and that it set to scale at 100%.  (Or page scaling should be set to none- each printer has a  different dialogue box so double check !!).
How do the patterns fit? 2017-05-30T23:10:46+00:00

An extensive sizing chart can be found on the sizing page.
