    I am in immediate need of knowing what to do. I took on a quartet costume project, I have been sewing for years and altering patterns for myself, now I am in the middle of having to fit this pattern to four different body types. http://www.johnlewis.com/new-look-project-runway-women’s-dress-sewing-patterns-6098/p1140808 On the front and back to pieces I am a bit confused how to do this pivot method or how to alter these pattern pieces at all. Help if you can. I have so enjoyed your helpful tutorials in general now I need specifics. Thanks so much. Greenestarr

    Are you just increasing the bustline? I think it’s just confusing because the sleeve is already attached to the bodice. Do you have another bodice pattern that’s more basic like the one I use? You can take that, place it on this pattern so you can draw where the armhole would be. With the armhole drawn, then you should have your pivot points. Does that make sense?
