Misses size patterns are made with a standard “B” cup and half sizes are made with a standard “C” cup. If you use a Misses size pattern and wear an “A”, “C” or “D” cup bra, your bodice will be baggy (A cup) or tight with wrinkles (C or D cup). The same thing applies to half sizes that wear an “A”, “B” or “D” cup bra. The Shape-A-Dart tool has PRE-MEASURED dart widths to correct darts on all commercial patterns, beginning with size 6 and going through 24 1/2, and includes sizes 38 to 46. Simply find YOUR pattern size and PERSONAL bra cup size on the Shape-A-Dart and make the correction.
Do your blouses, dresses and jackets look like the “before” pictures? Simply adjust the dart on the pattern with a Shape-A-Dart, following the easy instructions that are included, and you will have a perfect fitting garment and a “fit that flatters”! You can see this tool at ShapeADart.com.
