Fitting suggestion. This would be SO easy and FAST to explain this if I could draw a sketch. Sorry, I cannot get this to make paragraphs. I see them but they don’t show on the website…. … … I used to think bust adjustments were more work but the results are usually worth the extra bit of time. Once you understand the logic in them, it’s just basic geometry. Small ones are the easiest too. …. …. Besides, this is far easier than it sounds because it’s long. I also don’t know your measurements. It’s not really complicated but requires you to cut your pattern. …. …. …. … I cannot see clearly if this is a princess style or how the darts are handled. I’ll assume there are side darts. Do a standard Small Bust Adjustment (SBA). This makes the cup smaller, and also the ribs and waist, so you need to add back in. To add, split up the centerline of the top section without cutting through the neckline. Spread the bottom open as much as you took out. How much extra you can add here (for ribs) depends…. You can tell better when you true (straighten) the seam line. The seam shouldn’t have more than a gentle curve from where you’ve added the wedge. Here is where you can adjust length of the upper section. If you shorten or lengthen, remember also to do the back. …. …. Depending how much you took out of the bust, fitting the mid section depends on the amount needed for your ribs. Perhaps you will need to add to centre of upper section and also into side seams. I’m hoping the upper and mid sections might link up at or near the next size pattern. … … Once the ribs and mid section is established, the waist measurement can likely be adjusted in the side seams. If the waist is considerably larger than mid section, or vice versa, and the difference is too great to adjust in the side seams, you can split the mid section into four or six pieces, and insert little wedges - like adding little darts that never get sewn. It would make the midsection on a slight curve, but this would look straight when you have it on. … … On a princess style SBA, you can lessen the bust and should be able taper the line into whatever size you need for ribs and mid section. Once the bust is adjusted, the process is the same as above in getting the remainder to fit. Adjusting it to the waist should be the same as the other method. … … … It’s amazing what sneaking little tiny amounts into, or out of, can do. A millimetre here and a millimetre there can add up to quite a bit in no time. Take a few minutes and do a couple little sketches. Once you “get the picture” you can decide if you want to cut your pattern or do a tracing. Make a little mock-up muslin out of an old pillowcase. ….. good luck with your next. It’s such a cute little dress.

Just thought I'd repeat that this is a very pretty dress, and the fit is great -- gorgeous, in fact. That shot from the back is in the "I can't even imagine something looking this perfect on me in my dreams" category, lol.

Please don’t take me wrong - I was not criticizing the final fit. I was merely attempting to make suggestions about a different method of adjustment that might help in the future. It is a beautiful dress!
