FULL & SMALL BUST ADJUSTMENTS: We often discuss in our Facebook Group, how different womens bodies are; even those with the same basic measurements. Sometimes little tweaks are needed to provide the perfect fit just for you. For most, this won't be necessary. But for others, it makes the world of difference to fit, comfort level & how confident you feel in your new outfit.
For this reason, this pattern includes a fast & easy guide for a Full or Small Bust Adjustment if required.
(1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric.
(2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.
(3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics.
FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: 4-way stretch fabric with 50-100% horizontal stretch & a minimum of 10% vertical stretch.
Suitable fabrics include ITY, cotton elastane, poly elastane, poly jersey, swimwear fabric, ponte, rayon elastane, rayon bamboo elastane, stretch lace, stretch velour (stretch velvet), double brushd polyester.
