You've just finished resizing your pattern piece. That was easy, wasn't it? Repeat this process for every piece in the pattern and that's it- you're ready to make it in your size! Keep in mind, unless your pattern has different lengths for different sizes (which many patterns don't), this method will not help you alter the pattern size for a taller or shorter wearer. See the how-to "Burda Pattern Alteration for Petites" for information on how to lengthen and shorten a pattern. Good luck to my fellow non-standard-size seamstresses!
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
