Although we calculate our patterns for several sizes, you may fall in love with a style, only to find
the pattern does not include your size. No problem – follow the examples below to lengthen
a half/petite size pattern to a standard size or a standard size to a tall size.
You can also use this method to shorten a tall pattern to a standard size or a standard size to a half/petite size.
But remember, your bust / hip measurement must correspond to the given size to ensure a perfect fit. Mark the lines
for the alterations
on the pattern pieces

    The measurements are in milimeters? that doesn’t make sense. Even in centimeters it seems too short of a measurement.
