What patterns can I use this Sewing FBA tutorial with?

We originally designed this tutorial to show how to do a sewing FBA with the Patsy Party Dress pattern, however you can use this with nearly any dress or top pattern which has princess seams.

Difficulty Level = Beginner

This sewing FBA tutorial is perfect for anyone wanting to do a full bust adjustment on a sewing pattern with princess seams. It includes detailed step-by-step photo instructions and full size print-at-home pattern pieces for the pockets.

Our womens’ patterns are designed for a sewing C cup bust (B cup in most ready to wear bras). If you don’t fall into this size you may need to adjust your patterns, to get the best fit at the bust, armholes and across the back. This tutorial will walk you through doing this.
