How hard is it to alter a size 6-8 pattern to fit my granddaughter who measures for a 10? So many patterns end with size 8(ex. Bonnie Blue).
Thanks

Check out Girls Plus

Some of the patterns come in 1/2 sizes for bigger girls.

As far as adjusting the pattern you have, fitting the neck and shoulders is key. It is easy to add extra width in the chest, waist and hips. If the neck and shoulders are too small it will be much easier to start with a Girls Plus pattern that will fit in that area.
