Drafting Series

I would like to point to this wonderful series on drafting slopers at I found it when I was searching for something else. Part XIII: Using Slopers With Commercial Patterns gets into adjusting existing patterns, such as store-bought human-sized patterns, or maybe even patterns from doll books.

BTW, the book that is pointed to in that drafting series is:

Pattern Drafting for Dressmaking.
Pamela Stringer.
UK: B.T. Batsford Ltd.,1992.
ISBN: 0713469870

The book description from Amazon.Com:

This easy-to-use guide to drafting patterns for individual designs is aimed at anyone who wants to learn how to make patterns, from taking the measurements to constructing the foundations to drafting the actual pattern. The book concentrates on teaching the principles of pattern drafting and will equip the reader with the knowledge to draft any pattern for any design. All the methods can be applied to men, women and children, whatever their shape or size, and the contents include skirts, dresses, bodices, collars, lapels, sleeves, trousers, culottes and shorts.

She also mentions Make Your Own Dress Patterns by Adele P. Margolis, which I checked out from the Public Library previously. It doesn't cover drafting, but it does cover adjusting existing patterns.
