Hi am now the proud owner of Mccalls M5872 pattern here it is http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/filebin/images/product_images/Full/M5972.jpg
and keen to get stuck in I am making the peach version , however I just noticed in my excitement while bidding on e-bay the pattern is 1 size too small :( for the bust area I need to grade up the biggest size bodice about 1 inch plus about an inch or 2 for ease ( it’s quite fitted) based on the FINISHED GARMENT measurements on the packet i just need a few inches.
My question is as there are front darts if I add my inches + 1.5cm seem to the bodice would it be safe-ish to increase the darts ( on bodice ) by about say an inch or 2 so it matches the skirt darts? Or should I just disregard the pattern’s markings for the skirt darts and match up according to my bodice Or how would you go about matching up the top with bottom darts after the adjustments to increase the bust area on the bodice.
i don’t want to waste fabric, and just double checking my thinking before I snip my fabric
What do you think?
