About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

BWOF 06/2007-112 & a question about it

I have cut out this shirt and muslined it without sleeves. Now the 44 seems to fit in the bodice well enough, I can adjust it slightly if needed. The bodice from the waist to the hips needs work. At the hem it needs about 5-6 inches for comfortable coverage and the smallest gap starts about the waist, so we are looking at a pie-shaped gap. With the assymetrical opening and needing more than a grading to the largest size, 46, what would be the best way to alter this muslin? I need your help, please!!!

Here is the link to the pattern, I cannot get a picture to post:
