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.

Technique Materials

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.

    Thank you!! This is so helpful and well written. I’m very curvy and have a hard time getting blouses to fit properly, and I’m very excited to try out what I learned in your how-to.

    Thank you for this how-to. I’m taking on my first full-time student who, like me, has a full bust size. I’m one of those,"I know how to do “X” but bless me if I can write it down" people. By having this as a guideline that she can access at home between lessons, she will learn much more quickly. Nehmah
