This class will teach the process of creating a full bust adjustment on an existing pattern. Most sewing patterns are drafted for a "B" Cup and therefore most women require adjustments to get the best fit on the bodice of a garment.
This class will go over doing a full bust adjustment in 3 scenarios: patterns with a dart, without a dart, and on a knit.
*Please note, the goal of the class is to demonstrate and practice skills and not to make a finished garment.
