Pattern altering question
Can anyone tell me how I can adjust the bodice of a child's pattern that calls for a back zipper into a button/velcro back opening? I am making dressup clothes and think a velcro opening would work better for a small child. Also is there a way to put elastic in the waist to allow for growth and ease. The main fabric is tafetta so there is no give to it. I would like to make the dresses a little bigger so she can haave them a little longer.
