    Nichole, It looks like they changed the URL of the pattern. I’ve updated the link with what looks to be the correct new address. Try it again and see if it works now. –Anne

    I am on my second sundress made from your teriffic elastic top pattern I downloaded. It turned out so cute for my grandaughter, her mom wanted one as well! Easy to make, but time consuming doing the elastic rows. Finished dress was worth it though!!! Thanks, and would be interested in seeing any other patterns you have in inventory.

    I would like to make this dress, even willing to send it to kinkos to have it printed. when I try on my computer it comes up on one 8 x 10 sheet of paper, how do I get it to be printed at kinkos? I have clicked your kinkos link and it just takes me to there web site with no info about this pattern

    Heidi, I’m not sure what’s going on with Kinko’s site. You’d need to contact them about their content. As for the pattern, it’s a PDF file. Sometimes they print funny if the scaling is off. Check the scaling in your Print dialog box before you print it. Try turning the scaling off and see if that helps.

    I realized that my last two sentences may be unclear. What you need to do is double-check to be sure that your scaling is OFF before printing. You can do that on the Print Settings dialog box.
