Pattern

I am in the process of making a muslin bodice to check the pattern I made for my daughter because none of the premade patterns I have seen will fit her. She is 27 inches under the bust and narrower at the waist. I already have the back done. Just need to finish the front and make adjustments. I already know I will have to fix the back of the neck. I had to kick the boys out of my sewing room because her shirt was too bulky and she had to take it off so I could get an appropriate fit.

Anyone have any suggestions for making this process easier?

I figured it out. I made a drawing of her added about an inch adjusted the armholes and then made a muslin version and cut out the pattern on her. Then took the front quarter and back quarter that looked best and used them to cut out the pattern. It actually turned out very well. Will post a pic when it is finished sometime next month. I still need to get boning for it.

I am terrible at sewing clothing. Glad you figured it out!
