Enlarging a Book Pattern By Hand

Enlarging a small pattern from a book (on a grid) is much easier when you have a large grid to copy it on to! I had a lot of fun scaling up a pattern from Medieval Garments Reconstructed and I look forward to making up a mock-up soon!

If you have access to a printer, you could also try digitally enlarging your pattern and printing it. Check out my previous video “Scaling a Pattern Up to Life-Size” for more information on that! https://youtu.be/2lE72BSQ_VA

Have you enlarged a book pattern? What method did you use and how did it go?

Medieval Garments Reconstructed by Lilli Fransen, Shelly Nordtorp-Madson, Anna Norgard, and Else Ostergard (Amazon Affiliate link here: https://amzn.to/30tkVi6)

If you found my video explanation unclear, try Bernadette Banner’s video explaining the method! Sometimes hearing it explained differently helps!: https://youtu.be/Voe8lQFjiUM
