I'm wanting to make new look 6915, but only goes up to 18 and I need it to be bigger. the back I can work out myself, using a sandra betzina book I think it is, but the front has me stumped.
Where would you cut/add to it to make the whole thing bigger overall.

What I would do is lay tissue paper so that at least 4" shows on every edge but the hem. Then I'd measure out more lines. This is a pretty simple top with no visible darts so it should be easy to do. You already have a start by the three sizes shown; just keep drawing more lines out in the same fashion as they appear on the pattern. Then make a muslin.

I was wondering about doing that actually, but just wasn't sure if there's something I've "missed" LOL. So fantastic! Thanks! The length won't need a lot of changing since I'm short and everything is always far too long for me. Thanks heaps!!!!
