So my roll of medical pattern paper wasn't from the UK, but from the US. It only took 2 days to arrive though.
I nurse unloved vintage Berninas back to health and then just cannot bring myself to part with any of them... 807, 830, 840, 530-2, 930, 910, and a modded 717 in a Singer treadle base.

Okay, so I have medical roll paper and a sheet and am ready to start working on my toile in the next couple of days.

Silly question alert - does the pattern include the seam allowance?

Simplicity patterns usually include the seam allowance, if you read the envelope it will tell you how much, it's usually 5/8" but do read it and double check.
