I just wanted to share this site with you all - it's in Russian, but if you sew a lot, it is fairly easy to figure out.  My friend from the Ukraine showed it to me.

the patterns on there look pretty cool, but they're all in AutoCad .dxf format. Is there any way to convert them to something sensible, like a pdf?

I can get over not being able to read Russian, but not being able to open the pattern is a bit of a stumbling lock!

I was able to open them with Paint Shop Pro.  I'm sure Photo Shop will open them as well.

I already tried that. PS7 says it's an invalid file. Sad

You should get a free CADView/7 program, so you will be able to view the pattern and print it in its original size on A4 sheets. Please note that every pattern has a separate Cutting.html page and there is very important secton in the bottom of it, like

#Horiz 14#Vert 8Overlap% 5

These are parameters for printing in CADView/7.

I was able to download one of these and open it with Adobe Illustrator.  Not real sure about the scale of the pattern right now and how to actually print it so it's the right size.  None the less... cool!  Oh and just a little FYI about the language barrier... online translation Smiley  Works Wonders (not always but it's better than nothing)
