Altering a pattern to fit a full bust and also fit the waist on a princess seam pattern with seams through the shoulders. It's not overly difficult but can seem confusing. This is my first how to so please let me know if you have questions or something is confusing.
Princess seam pattern with seams through the shoulders, pencil, ruler or straight edge and measuring tape, extra paper, measurements, French curve is helpful but not necessary.
