I am getting a vintage Butterick maternity pattern, that has the largest size as a size 12, which has a bust measurement of 32. My upper bust measurement is 36, and my actual bust is 46. Besides the FBA, what other adjustments will I need to make this fit me? and do you have any links with tutorials on these fitting techniques?

I think I just replied on your other post about a FBA tutorial, but here is small series about grading patterns that you may find helpful too
