    A few weeks ago I needed to enlarge a patern for a dress I was making. I had a "multi-size" patern and noticed that the major marking seem to extend out along straight lines and the new markings for the larger size were the exact spacing apart. Without realizing it, I actually used this technique to enlarge my patern! I was absolutely amazed and thought I was a "genious" for figuring it out! LOL. Proof positive there ia a logical design to making clothing.
