Hello, I'm a new member and just returned to sewing. I bought Simiplicity Pattern #2404 last week and was moving along beautifully until I tried to put together the back and side bodice to the skirt. For some reason the bodice pieces are too big. I double checked the sizing (and went so far as to recut the pieces). I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong!

Can I adjust the back/side bodice pieces or will it mess the entire dress up?

Do you mean there is too much width to fit into the back of the skirt? Can you post some pictures?

This pattern has been reviewed quite a few times. You might want to check the reviews to see if anyone else had problems with it.

Hi, thank you for your replies. I managed to make an adjustment on the bodice and it looks okay - not perfect, but it will work.
