Fitting a client
I just drafted a pattern for my friend and have fit the muslin. She has quite an unusual front – kind of pigeon chested, a standard 36″ bust and a short torso.
In fitting, I had to fiddle around alot and have ended up with what looks like a good fit but a new 4″ dart (that is 2″ on either side). This helped drop the armhole too as it was riding up into her armpit too much.
Is a 4″ dart unusual and too wide?
This is not unusally at all. The amount of fabric taken out in the dart accommodates a larger cup size. It helps to curve the fabric around the breast.
