Making the Rosa shirt or dress sewing pattern? Vanessa here to take you through fitting your handmade creation to your unique figure.
One of the wonderful things about making your own clothes is that you can get them to fit your shape much better than most shop clothing. You can add or remove length where you need it, take the shoulders in or out, adjust for larger or smaller boobs... It does take a bit of extra work, but it's worth it to have a lovely outfit tailored just for you!
We’re going to look at how to:
- Choose your size
- Pin fit the princess seams and side seams
- Lengthen or shorten the torso or overall length
- Combine pattern sizes
- Make adjustments for wide or narrow shoulders
- Adjust for a sway back
- Make full or small bust adjustments
Bear in mind you almost certainly won’t need to make all of these changes, you might not need to make any at all!
