Hi all, today I made this:



from this pattern:
http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5094.htm?tab=dresses&page=

It turned out pretty good, the pattern is quite easy.. I have a problem though.. I have to small tits and too much of a belly LOL
Soo, I guess I will not have problems to make it wider at the waist section.. BUT How do I alter the top for a smaller breast? it is ruched under the breasts, and the straps are falling down because I dont fill out the front section  Wink Any ideas?? I want this dress!!

Nice dress!

You can take some of the extra fabric out of the ruched areas:  on the pattern tissue, cut slits from the ruched edge of the bust area, from the lower edge to the bust point. Overlap the cut edges a bit, and tape them down. Now smush the pattern with an iron so it is mostly flat, and use this to cut the front section. That will remove excess ease from the lower edge.  If the whole top section is too big, maybe you could try taking a vertical fold in the pattern in the front.  If you arent sure what to do, try putting the dress on and pinning out extra fabric until the straps stay up and it looks nice, then you will know where you need to remove fabric from the pattern.

Hope that makes sense!  I make small bust adjustments all the time Grin

Thanks ptarmic wumpus!! I believe that works, I put the dress on and had to take in a big dart in the front, between the boobs, and two little ones at the back on the sides of the zipper... Then maybe make the straps a tad shorter and it should work!! Thanks for helping!! Kiss
