We originally designed this tutorial to show how to do a full tummy adjustment with the Penelope Pencil Dress sewing pattern, however you can use this with nearly any fitted dress or skirt pattern.

While you may find your measurements fit into a specific size on our size chart, we are all different shapes. If you find a dress (with a waist seam) or skirt doesn’t quite fit around your tummy, follow this tutorial to add into the pattern pieces.
