Tutorial: Enlarge a sewing pattern without using a photocopier

When I think about enlarging a pattern, my first thought it to run down to the copy shop.  But what happens if the copy shop is closed?  CraftStylish shares a downloadable project sheet showing how to enlarge a pattern without using a photocopier.  They also point out a couple of good reasons why a photocopier may not be the best option for enlarging a pattern.  First, enlarging a pattern often creates shapes that are bigger than a standard paper size.  Second, enlarging a pattern with a photocopier can distort sizes due to the pattern lines themselves getting enlarged.  Get the tutorial.

    Can anyone tell me where these types of miniatures patterns can be found, particularly those that give a measurement scale?

    I answered my own question. You can find miniature patterns in lots of European and Asian sewing magazines.
