Dressmaking Made Easy - 1928 - Altering Patterns Part 3

More altering patterns, for "Prominent Abdomen, Larger Bust, Smaller Back, Larger Hip, Narrower Shoulders, Rounded Back, and Flat Chest". That should cover everything!


  1. Fantastic posts the past few days

  2. Ha! Lately, I think ALL of the alterations might apply to me - except for Larger Bust. Why can't it be the other way around? :)

  3. I have books like these - they are a wealth of information. I've actually used quite a few alterations because my shoulders and arms are very muscular while my bust is *ahem* less than ample. Little girls' patterns need a lot of alteration around the neck - I'm guessing her shoulders will be a problem for her fitting when she is grown more, as well.
