I’ve been looking for a women’s duffle coat pattern and I just can’t seem to find a good one. I did find a child’s pattern that looks like a tiny version of what I want. How sensible is it to think I could size it up?
And more importantly, can anyone give me general advice on what areas of the pattern are going to give me the most headaches when increasing them? For instance, I realize that the hood won’t have to be enlarged as much in relation to the whole, else I’d have a giant bobblehead hood. What else should I expect to be changing a lot?
Or, is this just a bad idea altogether?
