Whatcha know? It worked.
I scanned the pattern pieces of a historical corset out of a book, used the scale to determine the length of each piece, then cropped each piece (I love Irfanview), determined what size it printed out at, then determined the % needed to print out at 'full size' (192% as it turned out).

Now, I have to manually add width (about 6-8 inches of same. sigh.) Oh, and add seam allowances, of course.

Could be interesting.

Rofl! Now you know what I go through whenever my dad wants ships plans blown up.

I use PhotoEd from Office 97 Pro because the resize feature offers in, cm, and pixel. Comes in really handy for resizing to fit LJ's needs.

Oh, yes, having IT calculate the inches would have been wonderful.
