The pattern file named “Print at home” is compatible with printers using A4 or US Letter paper. All patterns are layered PDF files, and you can select and print only the sizes you need. To avoid printing issues, make sure of the following:
  1. Open the pattern on a computer (rather than a phone or a tablet) with the free software Adobe Acrobat Reader, not your internet browser.
  2. On the right side of the screen, click on the “Layers” icon. Keep the sizes you need checked in addition to “all sizes” and “base”.
  3. In the “File” menu, select print and ensure that the size options are 100% with no scaling.
  4. Start by printing the first page and check the size of the test rectangle before printing the entire file.
  5. You can also use the file named “Copyshop” to have it printed on A0 paper. Files are not protected and printshops can also use Adobe Reader to print them.


All patterns include the seam allowances, but they vary depending on the construction method. Check out the order of construction and the detailed instructions to find out what they are for each seam.
Just Patterns customers are dressmakers who already know the basics of sewing. If you need more help to complete specific steps, I curate a list of helpful resources and tutorials for each pattern.
