|I was at a conference with Cynthia Guffey last weekend and she gave me great advice on how to adjust my patterns to shorten the armscye while keeing the full center front length going over my bust. I had been doing a petite adjustment, pleating across the entire front. This, in effect, removes the length that I need to go over my full bust. So I was still having problems getting enough length in the center front even though I was doing a FBA. With this adjustment, I get the smaller armscye that I need, while keeping the length to get over my bustline.
Cynthia is so generous with her advice. She says she is geometrically gifted, I think I'm geometrically challenged!
On the drawing, I forgot to mention that the dashed line around the armscye is a cutting line.
