SuitAbility PDF Patterns on Etsy

Though we no longer sell our physical paper patterns directly (for a list of dealers see 'WHERE TO BUY' at www.SuitAbility.com) we are testing the waters with some downloadable PDF patterns with our new Etsy store: SuitAbilityEPatterns.

If you've never tried a downloadable pattern before, the way they work is that after purchasing you will receive a PDF file. Open the file with Adobe Reader (download for free here http://get.adobe.com/reader/ ) and you will have instruction pages and pattern piece pages. You can read the instructions on your computer, tablet, or e-reader or print them out. Before printing all of the pattern piece pages you need to print the page with the 3'' by 3'' reference square to test your printer settings. You want your printer to print at 'actual size' or '100% scaling'. If your printer is set correctly the reference square will measure exactly 3'' by 3''. Once this is verified, you can print the rest of the pattern piece pages. You will then tape them together. Here is an example of the grid formed by the pages for the shipping boots pattern:
