As part of Casey's Swing Dress Sew Along, I decided to order the PDF version of the pattern (because I am cheap and wanted to get the pattern right away). After printing out all of the pages it seemed a little intimidating and I wasn't sure if I had made the right decision. My printer was giving me some issues which added to the fear factor. However, once it was all printed out, it was quite easy.
I figure I would offer a few of my tips on how to put a PDF pattern together to help ease the mind of anyone facing this task.
After printing out all of the pages, I placed them on my table (which is a little too small for this, but it worked out okay). Here is what this looked like for Sheet 2 of the Swing Dress pattern:
All the pieces are laid out in the way I want to tape them together.
Next I find a good place to cut the pattern in half or thirds. The purpose of this is to reduce the size of the pieces as you tape them together. (Mostly because my sliding glass door isn't that large)
