I've watched a few tutorials on you tube about increasing the waist size, but I am totally lost :oops:
I'm making the blue one on the bottom of the pic ). Any easy tips? :) Thank you.

Hi Kath, you want to add 3/8 inch to each of the seams for the front & back of the shirt.

Do you have the line drawing for the pattern? I can't tell if the waist darts are fish-eye or regular darts.
Is it too small only in the waist or in the hips and/or bust as well?

But sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam,
And feast upon strawberries, sugar, and cream.
