Hello! I have a nifty Vogue Pattern by Carol Horn, #1907, that was new in 1988. I still love it, and re-discovered this pants-top-coat (sporty, linen style, loose fitting) pattern in a box the other week. It is a size 12.
Well, I am no longer a size 12… try a size 16.
Is it possible to re-size this pattern, which has remained in its package all these years, unused?
Do I add X-inches to the seams around the edges? Being a Vogue pattern, I expect it to fit pretty well, or drape well, in its original size. Is there a magic formula to re-size patterns? The coat, top, and pants are very loose-fitting, according to the pattern description on the back.
I checked several websites for out-of-issue, used, and vintage patterns, and this one isn’t listed.
If anyone out there has re-sized a pattern, please advise. Thank you.
