Many of us are drawn to learn to sew because the clothes we find in stores just don't fit. It's therefore a rather cruel irony that most commercial patterns are produced in an even more limited range of sizes than store-bought clothing. Take heart, all you nymph-like and Boticelli-esque fashion lovers. If you've ever thought, "Wow, I'd love to make that. Too bad the pattern doesn't come in my size," there is a solution, and it's easier than you think! In fact, if you spread a multi-size pattern out in front of you and stare at it for a minute, it will probably become obvious how you alter the pattern size up or down. Just in case, here's an easy step-by-step tutorial on the process.
