In-seam Full Bust Adjustment

I took a class by Lorraine Henry called 'Swivel Your Seams' that teaches a way to make pattern adjustment at the seamline.  The method is very easy to adapt and makes so much sense to me that I want to share it with you.

  • All you do is create hinges that allow you to move the seam in or out depending on your adjustments.  I love that it doesn't change much about the original pattern making it easy to match pieces together, everything seems to make much more sense.
  • Start by making all length adjustments then add or subtract width as needed at the seamline.
  • It's that easy!

Here are a couple of notes from the class.

  1. Sounds like a great class. I think I have that book but in an older version - not sure. What matters in the end is that the process of whatever 'fitting method' you choose works for you and you get the desired results.
