Im not quite sure i understand the problem. I often make my own pattern based on my kids measurements. When you have a paper pattern that you are following - if you need to copy it from a book - often first use 'onion skin' - or this translucent paper - if at all possible - use regular paper and hold the pattern up to a window on a sunny day. You will see the lines come right thru - trace the lines - then you can copy onto card stock paper or cardboard (cereal boxes work well!)
As child ages - i would often just cut an extra half inch all around the pattern to allow for growth.
Happy at Home Mama to DD 4/95 DS 4/98 and DS#2 8/10
