What are you most proud of? I am thrilled that I was able to do everything as Joi instructed and I ended up with a pattern that FITS!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient, watch the video over and over, take notes and then just get started. You can't ruin paper like you can a great piece of fabric and this technique encourages you to try different things to get a great fit. This is a great course and I am so happy to have found it. It was worth far more than the Craftsy cost of the course.

Using size 12 vogue pattern #1004 I'm having trouble with making the changes on the bust line to the waist, my bust measures 34.5 , apex to underarm 9", waist 28.5, I'm not sure how to make the adjustments to make both work together

Did you widen the pattern from the armholes to waist. Or did you take away width not sure how to "read" what you did. I am looking for a call that can help me deal with my girth being 2 pattern sizes larger than my shoulder size pattern. I am Apple shaped.
