Full Dress Pattern Tummy Adjustment Tutorial:
This free full tummy adjustment tutorial for a dress (such as the Penelope) will guide you through an tummy adjustment. The RP ladies’ XXS to 5XL sewing patterns are designed to fit a sewing C cup bust, which is a B cup in most ready to wear bras, and a height of 5 foot 6. If your measurements do not fall into this range, you may require some pattern adjustments.
After measuring your bust accurately and determining the best size to whip up, follow this tutorial for woven patterns for the best fit.
For a perfect fit, always make up a muslin first. Make the necessary adjustments to which ever pattern piece needs them. Try it on, check the fit is good for you. Then only cut into the fabric you want to use for your final garment once you know you’re fully happy with your muslin.
