    Thanks for the feedback! glad I’m not alone! For my printer right now it seems like it is best for me to print off a test page to confirm scale first. It looks like 102% is the magic number, but I realize that can change from printer to printer, or pattern to pattern. Seems like a test page to measure scale will be safest to avoid printing 40+ pages at the incorrect scale (which MAY have already happened!!), or worse, having the garment turn out too small!! 🙂

    I printed out a pattern at 100% and found that the test squares are slightly smaller than one inch! I reset the sizing to 102% and they seem spot for the 1″ test square and grid. Has anyone else had this issue? I am worried that it will not work out right, but then again it can’t be any worse than the clothing turning out too small either, right?

    Hi! My name is Amanda! I just started sewing last year before the birth of my daughter, Imogen. 🙂 I have shied away from sewing my entire life, despite my mother being a well-accomplished seamstress (and trying to get me to sew years ago!!). However, the sewing, knitting, and crafting bug hit me big a few years ago, and all I needed was a pregnancy to get the undeniable urge to sew cute little clothing for my daughter! Needless to say, I came across the Oliver + S Patterns and am SUPER excited to try on! I received the Tea Party dress as a mother’s day gift, and am itching to get started!! Looking forward to many more clothes!
