Using a Proportional Calculator

>> Monday, November 16, 2009

I aspire to designing my own patterns. I wish I knew how to turn the pictures in my head into finished garments.

I recently read this book, which explains how to take a basic shape of a bodice and alter it for additional styles.

I would love to be able to take these sort of patterns and enlarge them. There is a hard way to do this, which entails grids and drawing

...and long hand math. Eck. Eww.

So I went looking for a proportion scale. It will allow me to enlarge any pattern or shape you want, by making the math simple. I found two in calculator form free online.

Calculator #1
Calculator #2

Instructions on how to use the proportion scale for garment enlargement can be found here.
