How to Get the Perfect Custom Bust Fit

Threads #179, June/July 2015

The techniques described by Joi Mahon in this article from Threads #179 (June/July 2015) will give you a personalized bust fit. The secret lies in the quadrant-based approach.

Every body is unique in its proportions and dimensions. To customize patterns, sewers have been trained to use generic fitting adjustments that, unfortunately, often create more fitting issues than they solve. I have found that the best way to achieve impeccable fit is to focus on the body’s vertical and horizontal proportions, adjust patterns to correspond, then fine-tune the fit on a muslin. Let me show you how to get a perfect fit in one of the most difficult areas to fit on a woman’s body.
