Fitting for a c cup & ampire seam

pyns | Posted in General Discussion on

I read your article about fitting a large bust by altering the front piece.  How do I apply these suggestions when there is a  horizontal seam directly beneath the bust? The pattern I’m lookig at also has the upper front gathered onto the lower front.

    For the pattern you describe, you may not need to do a full bust enlargement for a C cup; however, you may need to lengthen the top part if the bodice point on the pattern is higher than yours.  (Check the cut-out tissue to yourself while wearing the bra or cami you'll wear under it.)

    A larger cup requires more length as well as more width; you may have enough width in the gathers, but you might need to extend the lower edge of the top piece by 1/2- to 1" or so.  Don't forget to add the same length to the back bodice piece so that the hem will be even.

    I'm having trouble getting into gatherings from my email.  I just found this S-Dart article and want to pass it on.  What a difference it makes. It is in Threads magazine, July 2003, Number 107 and entitled Curved Darts Flatter Every Figure. It is for the full figure.  This is not my problem and probably not yours.  I found it and wanted to get the information out there.
