My daughter has moved into several adult sized patterns, but because she has a shorter side waist length than they are drafted for, and she is only 5 ft, most are still a little too long on her.
One of her recent requests was for some regular shirts, like my most worn shirt, my solid black v neck Hey June Union St Tee. So I looked at the pattern and she just fit into the smallest size.
Because of her height difference, I knew I needed to raise the v neck and remove length, both in the amount of 2″.
To remove the 2″ in the v, I just moved the point up 2″ and then blended the new point, into the original neckline. I recalculated the neckband at 90% and then removed 2″ in the length of the bodice.
Once I made the solid black v neck, we decided to also make three scoop necks.
To do something a little different I did a slight sleeve mod and made two of them flutter.
I love being able to use one pattern but with different options and a little hack, she has four different shirts.
