2. In order to begin grading, you must first establish the overall grade to be made, which is the difference between the pattern’s measurements and the desired measurements or body measurements.

Since this How To introduces grading with the bodice, the only measurements we really need to know are the bust and waist. Lets say we want to turn a size 38 pattern into a size 42 pattern. The difference between a size 38 and 42 patterns gives us an overall grade of 3” (8 cm).
