Please tell me adjustments for both the Winter Street Dress and the Summer Street Dress to fit Bust cup size B, 34-36. I love the dress, but I know it will not fit.
Thanks.

kkoswalt, I am bust 34 and I used XS. I am a D cup though. I recommend making just a bodice muslin. You only have to make it for one. I'll track this topic so I'll get an email when you reply.

I'm 34A and I didn't need to make any bust changes on the Winter Street Dress. It's not a close fitting style so there's some leeway on the bust sizing. If you sew up just the bodice front and back and try it on you'll get a better feel if it'll work or not. Worst case scenario, if you need significant adjustments you just need to recut the front bodice piece. Likely you can unpick and adjust.

I am a c cup and just purchased this pattern. Don't think I will have to make any or not a lot of alterations anyway. We shall see!!

thanks for the replies. The 34A was the most helpful. I am glad to know it would not be a big problem. I like the pattern and am anxious to try it.

This is a really cute style, and good to know how the sizing worked for various people (particularly NhiHuynh, since we are similarly sized).

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

If anyone is interested I posted my pattern review on this pattern. Winter Street Dress pattern review I didn't think that I needed a SBA but you can see from the pictures and decide for yourself.

Thanks so much for asking about this kkoswalt! I am a B cup too (except a little larger - sporting a 36). Not used to having to do SBAs I was a little nervous about choosing my size. I really love the Winter Dress (thanks so much Deepika!) I am thinking about going for a "small" on the bodice. I haven't printed my pattern yet, but when I do I will do some flat pattern measurements. I am hoping I might have enough fabric to do a muslin... we'll see!

This is a really good suggestion - just re cutting the front bodice piece if necessary. Your dress looks fantastic!

Thanks to all who replied. Those plus some of the reviews of the pattern gave me courage to try it.
