Measuring the Bust Point

Q&A with Kathleen Cheetham

Joanna Y asked:
Hi, what is the smallest bust size you will teach?
Kathleen Cheetham answered:
Are you referring to bust cup size? If so, you could use my technique on an A cup or even a Zero cup.
proudgrdma2twin asked:
Excellent definitely need to know info.
Kathleen Cheetham answered:
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the class. When your clothes fit nicely at the bust, doesn't it make you feel good!
SewMuchInterest asked:
Hello - most of the fba instructions I've come across seem to assume a proportionately larger waist to go with it. Will your class cover adjusting for a larger (30 H) bust, while still maintaining a close fit for a small rib cage and waist?
Kathleen Cheetham answered:
Yes, as we complete the steps for adjusting the full bust area, I will demonstrate how to maintain the original circumference of the waist or hem by pivotting the lower section of the pattern.
