If you have a PDF sewing pattern, it might have a handy feature called layers. It saves you ink when printing sewing patterns and makes it easier to see the sizes that actually matter to you.
What is it?
PDF patterns designed with layers allows you to turn the visibility of sizes on and off before printing. This means only the size lines that matter to you will be shown.
How to use it
Open your PDF in Adobe Acrobat. This is the program that lets you access the layers (if the designer has created them). In the small icon menu on the left, you’ll see what looks like a stack of three papers. This is the ‘layers’ icon.
Click on the ‘layers’ icon to open its menu. It will display a list all of the layers you can turn on and off before printing. This will typically be organised by size.
Unselect the sizes you don’t need to print by clicking the eye symbol next to those sizes. Now all you have to do is print and only the sizes left selected will print!
All of the Experimental Space patterns have size layers you can turn on and off. Hopefully, this helps make PDF printing easier for you in the future! If you have any questions you can always get in touch, I would love to help.
