Full Bust Adjustment Princess Seam

Do you struggle to get a garment to fit at the bust? Perhaps you have a fuller bust or larger cup size?

Most patterns are drafted for a B Cup; which means there is a 2″ (5cm) difference between the High Bust and Full Bust. If you have a greater difference than this, then you may need to do a Full Bust Adjustment. Working with a princess seam? Then this tutorial is for you.

Watch the video (above) to learn how to do a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) to a princess seam pattern. I share two different methods you can try to complete this adjustment; Option 1 is more suited for smaller adjustments (1″ (2.5cm) maximum) and Option 2 can be used on larger FBA adjustments.
