I have bought Vogue 8120 – a princess blouse with tucks at the shoulder line and no bust darts. As a double D cup, I need to make the inevitable alterations. I’ve been to the Palmer Pletsch classes so I know the basic methods for adding width across the bust and I also have their Fit for Real People book but nothing seems to apply to shoulder tucks. I have the feeling that I just need to add width to the shoulder tuck but am not sure so don’t want to cut up the pattern into little pieces trying something that won’t work.
Any and all guidance much appreciated.
