This is not a printed pattern. This is a digital download. You will receive a link sent to the email used to order. You will receive several files in letter size: How to print, the front and back of the cover, the sewing instructions, and the pattern tiled in color. You will also receive several A0 sizes files: The entire pattern in color with solid lines, and the entire pattern in black and white with dashed lines with size layers. This means you can print the pattern in just the size you want by using a copy shop or tiling the pattern yourself and printing it on your home printer using the "poster" option in Adobe Acrobat. This is a link to the Adobe help page on how to use the poster option:

Laughing Moon Mercantile 150 - Ladies Split Skirt, Culottes, or Palazzo Pants:
Note: Views A, B, and C have a fully functioning fall front that closes with buttons. This is correct period construction for the 1890s through the 1940s. View D does not have a fall front but has a zipper at center back for modern or easy construction. All Views have a total of eight panels. There are two optional patch pockets on the side fronts. There are two options for length: View B has a shorter length of 31 inches and Views A, C, and D have a length of 40 inches. View A is the long length with the option of a panel that can be buttoned to the front of the skirt to disguise the fact that it is actually a split skirt. Views A and Ds front waistband is at the natural waist. View Bs center front extends upward about 4 inches for a short bib. The bib is held up by suspenders that go over the shoulders and cross in the back and attach at the back waistband. View C is the longer skirt with the center front pieces extending about 10 1/2 inches for a longer bib. The bib is held up with suspenders the same as View B. View D is the longer skirt that does not have a fall front and instead has a center back opening that closes with a zipper. All fabrics for all Views are easiest to construct with a solid color because matching plaids or prints across the 8 panels would be an advanced sewing skill. Or, the panels could be of dissimilar fabrics as a design choice.
