It fits but...

I just finished making a muslin of the blouse from the Perfect Plus book by Kathleen Cheetham. I am so excited that if fits, but the neckline is too low. I would like to now use the pattern that I traced from the book to use on a different pattern. Can this be done by placing the first on the bottom and trace lines and darts.

I was even able to lower the bust dart as the apex on the pattern was 1" higher than mine. Pretty proud of myself there!

Thanks for any help from all you wonderful ladies!

Have a blessed evening,

Congratulations on your blouse!

I don't fully understand your question. Idon't know if I can answer it anyway, but I figure if I don't understand, maybe someone else also doesn't understand.

You have this pattern that you just made your muslin from. You now want to take that pattern & use it to modify a different pattern. Yes?

I think the answer is 'it depends'. Presuming both patterns have on-shoulder seams (vs a style that has forward seams), I tend to use the shoulder as my starting point for matching. Or you might just take a design feature from the new pattern and add it to a copy of your TNT (tried 'n' true) pattern.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.
