After making observations about what needs to be altered, now I can make the pattern adjustments.
Starting with the back again. I made a tuck from the neck to the hem near her spine. This tuck removes the excess in the center back. There was excess in this area as appose to the shoulder area. Sorry I forgot to photograph the flat pattern. But below is DD wearing the pattern with this change made.
DD has a small waist, but she is curvy in the hip area. So I added tissue along the side seam of the back. I think this works for the back of the jacket.
Next, I made a FBA. Spread the pattern the required amount, fill in with tissue paper, and tape.
The pattern center front now comes to DD's center front. (NOTE: I forgot to pin out the waist dart. Update will come in the next post.)
