Cutting Layout Diagram
This issue of Sew News refers to a cutting layout diagram for this blouse on page 63. I don't see such a diagram anywhere. The layout of the pattern pieces which fits on one sheet of paper can't be the diagram referred to because the front, back, and two sleeves must all be cut on the fold. The pieces are not oriented correctly on that layout to be used as the cutting layout. I have no doubt I can figure out how to lay out the pieces for best use of my fabric, however, since the magazine refers to this website as having that layout diagram, I expected to find it here; I am greatly disappointed that Sew News staff rarely or never reads the comments here and they never seem to reply either.

You need to tile the printout. This means you would be printing the pattern at 100%. It takes 20 sheets of paper. Two will pass through the printer as blank, the other 18 will contain parts of the pattern. Next to the photo of the blouse, you should see a paragraph that refers to the e-pattern printing guide. I suggest you download and print the guide first, then try printing the pattern again, according to the instructions given.

I printed out the pattern. It is to small and on one piece of paper. What did I do wrong?
The sleeves are in the pattern print out. It is helpful to print out the e-Pattern print out guide when downloading the pattern.

Blouse pattern
I tried to download the new blouse pattern and there aren't any sleeve patterns. Am I missing some information?
