What was your inspiration? Joni is Myrna's daughter from one of my other student posts. This was such a perfect interpretation of my method. Joni had to shorten the upper part of her pattern, increase in the bust area and shorten the lower part of the pattern just like her mom. She now has such a great fitting pattern bock to make shirts, jackets, etc. . . We only had to pin in the darts on the front. The back is almost perfect. WOW imagine doing that from a pattern and having your first fit sample turn out this good?
