I took on a custom request recently that required quite a bit of pattern altering. My cloth diapers and diaper covers are made to fit babies but I was asked if I could make it in an adult size for a handicapped individual. I decided to give it a go! The best method I thought would work was the 'slash and spread' method. You basically cut your pattern and spread it to the desired size. I worked one size at a time, creating not only the adult size but all the sizes in between. I can essentially offer my cloth diapers in toddler, child, etc. now. I'm so glad I took on this challenge which helped not only my knowledge grow but also my business!
