I realize this should be simple, but my middle-aged non-mathematical mind can't figure it out. I need a free panty pattern for a 22" doll. I found one for a 19.75" doll. By what percentage should I enlarge it? I don't have a doll to experiment with.

A 22" doll is about 11% larger than a 19.75" doll. I think you would be safe calling it 10% which is easier to figure. However, this is a difference in height and I don't know if it would be 10% for waist and thigh measurements which are circumferences. Dolls might not be proportional for each measurement. (Most people are not, sadly!) I am not sure if I have helped.

mpbh, yes, you have helped. I am going to increase the pattern size on the copier by 10 percent and go from there. Thanks.
