    I’m seeing several 1A’s and 1 B’s. I’m not sure how these are supposed to go together. Any advice?

    They may spin around and be attached to the other side.

    These PDF’s are very good and rather then making a huge sheet, you put together the pattern pieces.

    I think each piece has an A1 and a B1 etc. Good luck

    I figured it out, sort of. I had to cut one piece in half vertically, but I still have a mystery small piece that doesn’t appear to fit anywhere. I guess I’ll look at the printed pattern I own in the larger size range.

    Which pattern were you making?

    Whenever I print a PDF I am left with one sheet of random pieces. I am in AUS printing on a home printer.

    You shouldn’t have any pieces left over that have lines on them. Some pieces of paper may need to be cut in half vertically or horizontally and used to complete different pattern pieces. But that should be pretty clear because you will see different numbered keys on different sides of the sheet. Any corner or edge that is supposed to be taped to another corner or edge will have a numbered key telling you where to join.

    You can always compare the pieces you have taped together to the full sized pattern sheet which is the last page in the file to see if you have put any pieces together in the wrong way.

    It’s the Roller Skate dress. I think it is just part of that last sheet with part of the test square and part of the back neck facing. I printed pages 14-26 and I guess I could have stopped at page 25.

    I pretty much only buy patterns via pdf and found O&S pattern pieces to be so confusing the first time I bought a pattern. Once I figured out the system, now I think it’s easy peasy but I remember cursing and pulling my hair out trying to figure it out since it was unlike any other pdf patterns I’d ever used. The letter key in the corner is the primary thing to go by rather than getting pages to line up.

    The key thing to remember is that you’re not trying to put together one big sheet of patterns, but rather individual pattern pieces.
