Has anyone used the bust size adjustment on this pattern? I am finding it confusing. The bustline lines on the adjustment pieces don't line up. Looking for ideas as to how to deal with this.

Hi ogarc, I am making a muslin using the fitting shell. I have size 14 and the bust adjustment pieces fit exactly. Are you possibly using the dress B which has ease instead of the fitting pattern A with none at all? After all this time I guess you've already sorted this one out. Cheers Kay

Nice Fit; Sexy Fabric; Classic Cut. You could not have went wrong with this pattern and fabric together. Very nice. This would have probably cost a mint in the store.
