i bought a pattern for a girls vintage dress pattern from the 50s. i got excited when i saw it and it is a size 10 and i needed a size 4. i traced then graded the pattern down to the size 4. i put a question on the site about reducing it and got some answers, nehmah helped with the math. i got a lot of “it can’t be taken down that many sizes” but here it is finally! 2 sewing machines, 2 holidays, and 1 cna class later! i am having issues with button holes so it is taking still more time to finish.
