Adjusting the Sia Dress bodice pattern

Over the weekend I created a series of videos on how to adjust the Sia Dress bodice pattern pieces. Β I am very new to creating this type of content so please provide feedback on how I can improve this content moving forward.

The adjustments covered include:

  1. How to increase the V neck to create a more modest front bodice.
  2. How to shorten the front bodice.
  3. How to increase the front bodice.
  4. How to reduce the amount of fabric in the front pleat for a smaller bust size and how to increase the amount of fabric in the front pleat and front bodice at centre front for a larger bust size.

I have provided an introduction of the bodice to provide an understanding of how it was drafted and a summary of all of the adjustments at the end.

Instructions include how to adjust the back bodice piece where necessary and also your front lining piece so all pattern pieces marry up.

Goodluck and please email me if you have any additional questions about adjusting the Sia Dress Pattern. I am here to help you achieve the best possible fit of this pattern for your body.
