The pattern comes with a A4 (or US Letter Size Paper) Print At Home version ( 50 sheets - note: 1st sheet is the test square to check correct scale and on page 32 there is a sheet indicating the pattern layout for Sheet 2 follows. There are 48 pattern tiles - 30 pages for Sheet 1 and 18 pages for Sheet 2 ).
UPDATE: We recommend to print all pages to have the pattern for the top and dress pattern pieces. However if you wish to only print the Alice Top Pattern here's a tip with thanks to Sewn By Elizabeth - "For those interested, it is recommended to print the following pages if you only want the top pattern: 2,3,8,9,24,25,30,31, 33-50. If you also wish to only print the tearaway Vilene shield template pieces for your size, please note: print pages 23-24 for size XS-S, p4 for XL or p10 for M-L."
You will also receive Print At Copy Shop version file (note: there are 2 files that need to be printed - Sheet 1 is A0 sheet size Sheet 2 is A1 sheet size) along with the sewing instructions file (so that you can print these at home). Ensure that all printing is done on 100% Scale (or Full Scale).
