V9169 Pattern Fitting
I had to make several adjustments to this pattern
I hate it when the largest size on a multi-sized pattern is a 14. I need that size for upper chest/neck and shoulder in Vogue and Butterick patterns, but need 16-18 for bust and waist. Some multi-sized patterns come in multi sizes of 14-20, 22. Not really any consistency in this.
With the largest size being 14 I knew I would have to make a FBA; and the front piece is all one piece so adjusting that was a little challenging and requires adjusting the contrast bottom front piece as well. Swayback adjustment also required adjusting the one piece back and contrast back pattern. My other usual adjustments included forward shoulder and shortening the sleeves. The sleeves with this pattern seem to be tight and the pattern markings for bicep size confirm the pin fitting of the sleeves, so I had to add 3/4 inches to the bicep area.
I have yet to cut out the fabric and plan to do so later today. More updates to follow.
