5. Pattern Cutting Alterations: Full Bust Adjustment
If you are using commercial patterns such as paper patterns and PDF patterns, you will have noticed that all patterns are usually drafted to a B or C cup. If you are smaller or larger than this drafted cup size, you will need to do a 'full bust adjustment' on the pattern before you cut your pattern out in fabric. This can be a very daunting task, especially for beginners. During this workshop, your host will teach you two different techniques that will cover a princess line bodice style and also a full bodice with bust darts. Workshop Breakdown: Size charts - choosing the correct size to use as a base Taking body measurements Understanding cup size and how this will alter your sizing and pattern Differentiating the front body pattern and back body pattern Creating a 'FBA' on a full bodice with darts Creating a 'FBA' on a princess seam bodice You will work on blocks / slopers that are your base size, manipulating them into your personal cup size. You will then be able to transfer this knowledge onto all you patterns at home.
