Minor Pattern Alterations

Minor alterations for doll clothes patterns are done the same way as human sized patterns. The pattern may be divided horizontally and/or vertically, and either separated to make an alteration larger, or overlapped to make the alteration smaller.

Bodice #1 shows where the bodice may be cut into halves or quarters.
Bodice #2 shows the pattern moved apart to make a larger pattern.
Bodice #3 shows that the cuts may not be parallel for some alterations.
Bodice #4 shows that the cut pattern pieces may be overlapped to make it smaller.

Sleeve #1 shows where the sleeve may be cut into halves or quarters.
Sleeve #2 shows the pattern pieces moved apart to make the sleeve larger.
Sleeve #3 shows the pattern pieces overlapped to make the sleeve smaller.
