Fitting If You Are Larger or Smaller than Printed Pattern:
Determine how much larger or smaller you are in the bust or upper bust measurement than the largest or smallest pattern. Split the pattern as shown and add 1/4” for each inch above the measurement you are. If you are smaller, split the pattern and overlap 1/4” for each inch below the lowest measurement you are.
This will maintain the neckline, and we can make additional adjustments as necessary.
