    Line B-C in the top piece is supposed to be half the bust measurement. I drew it like that, but the diagram of the finished pattern shows that part of the pattern going from armpit to armpit on the front. I’m confused because if I use half, like the instructions say, the top piece would go all the way around the upper bodice. Am I just not clear on how the bust measurement was taken? Or was the bust measurement supposed to be just front bust? Please help!

    I was looking at the pattern block instructions, and for step 14 it says to take the ratio of the measurements. You used a 9 in your example, and I have no idea where you got that from. My 1/4 underbust is 7.5" and my b-front W is 3.5" if that makes any difference

      There is a ‘get it now’ button to the right hand side of this page, which will take you to the page where you can download the ‘print at home version’. Enjoy!
