    Thank you so much for this!! I was searching the Hey June Facebook page for info on doing a FBA on the Charleston when I came across your post linking to this tutorial – and it was the best accidental find ever. Spent time doing a FBA and LBA to the pattern and for the first time ever a bodice has fitted perfectly first go!!

    I should add, I’m not tall at all – more on the shorter side of average, but I have a really long & skinny upper torso πŸ™‚

      Hi Anna! This makes me SO happy that it was helpful and worked for you!! That is always so nice when your first adjustments to a pattern are spot on!

I learned that I have a pretty low bust after making the Charleston Dress by Hey June. I altered the pieces the exact same way, so if you have a similar issue, check out the blog post I wrote about how to do a low bust adjustment on princess seams. […]
