Wider , Minnesot...
Measurements you will need are bust, waist, back length, front waist length and bust point. Use your back length measurement To decide to lengthen or shorten the pattern. Use your waist measurement to decide on the size you will use. Then compare the bust, bust point and front waist length. I used a size 46 pattern, My measurements for those points were bust point of 12”, Front waist length 20” and bust of 44 ”. For this size the pattern is bust point 11 1/2”, front waist length 18” and Bust 41”. This means that I want to add a 1/2” to the the bust point, a total of 2” to the waist length and 3” to the bust width. (I have to Shorten the pattern by 1 ½ “ by waist back length my front waist and bust points were shortened by these amounts as well. that is why they do not match the chart)
