Step 1 Sizing the pattern

The pattern pieces are currently sized for a 8.5×11″ piece of paper. Presumably, these will not fit you, and will need to be significantly scaled up.

For sizing, the most significant issue is that you can slip it on over your head. For me, that meant 36", so I sized it so that the top of the skirt pieces and bottom of the bodice pieces each added up to 36". (so on the pattern, the top of the skirt was 9", and the bottom of the back and front bodice pieces was all about 9".)

Determine what size you can slip into, and resize accordingly. Also adjust the lengths so the waist and hem fall where you would like them. (keep in mind that you’ll be losing about 1" from the bodice for making the sleeve for the elastic)
