How to Fine-tune the Fit on a Bodice Front

In Part 2 of Kenneth D. King’s “Smart Fitting” series, he shows how to put three basic fitting principles to work at the bust and waist: Focus on reading the muslin, pinning the problem areas, and making the pattern adjustments. In Threads issue #148, Kenneth shows you how to remove excess fabric above the bust, add fabric for a full bust, correct a twist under the bust, and finesse a princess seam by applying the three principles.
