Full Bust Adjustment Workshop - Saturday 17th November 2018
By Fabric HQ
Full Bust Adjustment (Side dart) Workshop
When: Saturday 17th November, 3.00pm - 5.00pm
Where: Fabric HQ, Layby Farm, Old Risborough Road, Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire, HP22 5XJ.
Most commercial sewing patterns are drafted based on a B or C cup size, these being the most common sizes. But for those with a larger cup size, getting a good fit can be difficult and you may end up with gaping armholes. If you use a larger size pattern to fit your bust, the rest of the garment will be too large.
Side darts in a front bodice pattern create the bust shaping and by increasing the size of these darts and the centre front length, extra space can be created for the fuller bust.
This workshop will show you how to make the necessary adjustment to a pattern with a side dart, since these are the most typical way of shaping a garment. Learning how to make this adjustment can make all the difference in constructing garments as the skills learned can be transferred to other side dart patterns.
You don’t need to bring anything but a good pencil and eraser and sharpener would be useful. We will provide measuring equipment, paper, sticky tape etc. By the end of the workshop you will have a basic bodice pattern adjusted to your bust measurement. You will also have a detailed instruction sheet to take away with you.
