If it's a consistent 2", you can try to size the pattern down -- look at how the cutting lines get smaller through the different sizes and basically extrapolate from there. (If each size is about 1" different around, you'd go down two sizes, or so forth.) Use muslin or some other cheap fabric to mock it up to make sure it fits -- you're better off cutting too large and taking it in by pinning and marking when you try things on, repeating as many times as you need to get the fit you like. If you're a different amount off in different spots, adjust differently at key points and curve your lines between. (Disclaimer -- this is just what's worked for me in the past, not any proper method AFAIK.)
