I am not familiar with making a pattern that fits sizes up to 16 to go into a PLUS size......any suggestions in how making the pattern fit a PLUS sized woman? I remember my grandmother used to have newspaper for the outlines but not sure if this will work for the pattern itself. With all the darts and inseams and so forth, would you need to move it away from the center to even up the lines (ie. the busts...you dont want them squeezed together with the darts they tell you to sew!) Its a civil war dress pattern!
