If you have a half scale dressform, you can carryout your pattern adjustments on it. I have a protruding derriere and a tummy, so I attach one half of a pair of should pads (I use a old pair of the sponge pads) to the tummy area and the other half to the hip area when I make skirts etc. Both sit just right and if you play about with a half scale pattern piece you can actually see the practical effects of the alterations which helps enormously in grasping why and how amendments to the paper patterns actually work. You can also use the pads to place over the bust area for larger than B-cup alterations too when making tops and dresses.

When you work w/ the half scale form, are you working with the pattern pieces themselves or with fabric? Do you draft your own patterns?
