For sewers who just want to enlarge a multi-sized pattern by a couple of sizes without using grading techniques. Also suitable for beginners.
The Lydia top is used as an example for this how-to.
Difficulty: Easy but can be tedious, especially for designs with lots of pattern pieces and darts, e.g: jackets.
Marker pen, tracing paper, ruler or set square
