Hi...I am making a dress that has a bodice and skirt that is attached with a back zipper and sleeves.....I need to make the pattern larger than the largest size....of course I need to add a different amount for the bust, waist and hips. It is pleated with waist darts...would it work if I split the front and back bodice next to the dart???

Thanks!!!
Christie

I see your status is "Advanced". I'm not quite sure what you mean by "split the front and back bodice next to the dart". If you need more room in the bust(larger than a B cup), you will have to do a Full Bust Adjustment(FBA). How much do you need to add? Can you just add to the hips and waist by increasing your side seams? What pattern are you using?

Thanks for your reply.....I am using simplicity project runway 2444. I am just adding to the side seams.
