Understanding Bust Adjustments


Understanding Bust Adjustments


Unless otherwise noted, commercial patterns are based on a B cup figure, so if you are a D cup or larger, or smaller than a B, and are having problems getting a good fitting garment, this class will teach you how to achieve a good fitting garment. We will go over how to decide on selecting pattern size, and bust adjustment techniques. Students will work together to make adjustments to their own personal bodice.

Please bring a pattern you are interested in adjusting.

Level: Advanced beginner and above.  Should have sewn a garment prior to this class.
