I HAVE SEVERAL ALTERATIONS TO DO (FBA, WAIST, HIP AND SWAY BACK ADJUSTMENT). WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS, "HOW DO YOU TRANSFER THE CHANGES FROM THE MUSLIN TO THE PATTERN PEICE, PARTICULARLY THE CHANGES FOR A SWAY BACK ADJUSTMENT?"

The classic method is to pick apart the muslin and use that as the actual pattern.

Depending on how you have made the changes on the muslin and what changes you have made, I have taken the muslin, laid it flat and measured the atleration, say 1" below the waist line , let out 1/2" etc. and then marked the change on my pattern.
Have also placed my pattern over the muslin, laid flat and noted the changes on the pattern....
Picking apart the muslin works too, but takes longer and you have to be careful you don't stretch certain seams out of whack. The more exact you are, the better your fit will be....hopefully....we always hope......ML

I have tanen the muslin and ironed it flat after taking it apart and made sure that the correct pattern variations, markings, numbers, notches and any other guides are put on the muslin. Then use it as a pattern. I sometimes have fused the muslin to another piece of either interfacing or fabric in order to make it stronger or easier to read. It's not hard, just time consuming. Good luck. You end up with a very deluxe new pattern.
