Todd Gibson replied to the topic Test square 1/16” too small. iPad-iBooks and Adobe in the forum liesl + co: classic shirt 6 days ago
I’m not sure what exactly might be the problem. You should be able to print with A4 without any problem.
I would suggest enabling the rulers in Adobe Reader to check and confirm that the test square is 1″. (It definitely should be….) Once you’ve confirmed that the file is accurate, you’ll know that it’s something in how your device is…[Read more]
@acs19 the charts do look a bit odd, but they are indeed correct. The two size ranges are built from completely separate blocks, and the patterns are quite different as a result. The expanded size range is much more curvy than the straight size range. If you fall into the sizes that overlap, you can choose which you think will best fit your shape.…[Read more]
Holly, there’s always the option of purchasing the digital version and having it printed large format and mailed. This company does that.
Short version of my long reply….
Use the instructions and pattern pieces that you have, and don’t worry if your instructions differ from what it says in the sew along.
(The pattern piece and the instructions go together. A minor change was made to both for a later printing, and that’s what’s reflected in the sew along. So don’t make any…[Read more]
Colleen, which printing of the the pattern do you have? You can tell by looking at the copyright box on both the pattern sheet and the instructions will tell you. Look for the smallest number you see there in the row of numbers. If the smallest number is 1, you have a copy from the first printing.
In the second printing, Liesl made a minor tweak…[Read more]
I believe it’s not just the negative ease of the fabric that drives the difference. The pants have an elastic waist, so the relaxed measurement includes the elastic at rest. The waist will expand significantly when worn due to the elastic and the knit fabric.
There’s a tutorial that will show you exactly how to do that here:
Ha! I love the tag you put in the collar. I’m thinking this particular shirt was made with more swear words that most!
So glad you figured out the issue, and thanks for providing an update.
All our PDF patterns are created so that the text cannot be copied and pasted.
If you send an email with your order number to firstname.lastname@example.org we should be able to provide you some help with this issue.
The dress on the pattern cover is a Japanese linen rayon. The peplum blouse is an embroidered double gauze.
I wish I was living in Spain
Where the rain stays mainly on the plain
But I’m here in Nantucket
trying to fill a bucket
And this hole is really a pain
Next week four patterns arrive
This time of year is so busy!
Thank goodness the Champagne is fizzy.
But the joy of the day
Is all over by May
No, unfortunately, the creation of layers is something that needs to be done when the original pattern is created. There’s no way to take an existing file and add layers to it. The file needs to be completely remade from the ground up. That’s why we’re creating new patterns with layers (it’s a completely different process to develop the pattern so…[Read more]
There isn’t a list available. It’s something we have started doing within the last couple years. Older styles will not have the PDF layers built in, but newer styles will.
In the full description of the pattern, you’ll see a sentence mentioning that the pattern has layers to print only your select size if the pattern has been produced that…[Read more]
Phyllis, you will cut two of piece number 13 with your fabric folded. (See the cutting layout.) That will give you pieces for both sleeves.
Well, it appears that the error correction contained an error! So sorry about that. The correct length measurements for the bodysuit are as follows:
- 0-3 M: 14″
- 3-6 M: 15 1/2″
- 6-12 M: 17″
- 12-18 M: 18 1/2″
- 18-24 M: 20″
The previously issued errata for this has been updated.
Yes, you are right! There is an error in the length measurement. We’re so sorry about that. We’ll issue an errata and update the pattern shortly. But in the meantime, the correct length measurements for the bodysuit should be:
- 0-3 M: 15.75″
- 3-6 M: 17.75″
- 6-12M: 18.75″
- 12-18M: 20″
- 18-24M: 21.5″
Last year we upgraded our PDF delivery module. The upgrade provides a more robust and flexible method for delivering PDFs, but one of the things we lost was that single consolidated list of all PDFs you had ever purchased that used to appear on your order history page. (It’s been gone for almost a year now, and this is the first question…[Read more]
We haven’t made that pattern available in digital format. When you start to make your alterations, it is actually quite important that you work with traced pattern pieces rather than the original or with copies printed from a PDF. This is because you will want to have only the lines and markings for the size you are going to work with when you…[Read more]
Thanks for your understanding. It really should be called out more clearly than that, so I’ve just added a box to the first page of the tiled pages. Anyone who likes can use their download link to obtain this updated copy. There’s been no change to instructions or pattern pieces.
