Oh, I do appreciate the video. But, no, doesn't help.lol
I know how to do an fba on a regular shirt front that is one piece (like the video), with or without, darts. What is throwing me off, is the bodice is in three pieces. The lowest half of the bodice, looks a princess seam, but the upper half not.
That dress (pattern) looks so pretty, and I hope once you have it finished you post a picture of it :)
Wish I could help you, but I have no clue about sewing that kind of stuff...lol
Good luck and hope someone here can help you
I believe only pieces 1 &2 need to be altered.
I'd split pieces 1 & 2 below the arm pit. The starting gradually at the armpit side, add a piece across pattern piece 2 and then across 1. Like a dart only the reverse. That would give fullness in the front but not affect the sides or back.
Don't think you need to adjust the yoke section at all. The neckline won't be affected.
Qwilter, thank you. I did end up doing like you said. I was using all my newer books to look for an adjustment...then remembered good ole' readers digest manual. I left a hinge at the side and split at the apex. When I used my curve to fill in, it made a perfect princess seam..surprised me. I lengthened the yolk, which was a mistake, your right...made my neckline gap. I feel confident that I can correct it on the next muslin.
I covered now! In a much more ladylike fashion.lol
Thank you all :0)
