that is a great question and I have no idea lol
Ok so to do this you will need to utilise a technique called cut and spread. Trace your pattern onto paper you don’t mind cutting up. If you’re using a vintage pattern it’s best to trace it so you can keep it.
Divide your pattern piece vertically into thirds and cut, so you have three slices of your pattern. Then you add in the extra amount of width in between those slices and tape the pieces to paper. Smooth out the curve of the edges and cut. You now have a pattern that has been resized to suit you. (Be sure to add in a bit of extra width for ease - ease is what helps you move around in a garment.)
I did this cut and spread graphic for my blog a few years ago. It shows horizontal slices as well as vertical. If you are taller and need more length just repeat this process for the horizontal cuts and bam, that’s how you do it.
This is amazing. Thank you so much for this!
