Better Fit Friday -- The Round Back

Today for Better Fit Friday, we're going to look at the Round Back adjustment.  You can find all of the previous Better Fit Friday editions here.

A round back will cause drooping towards the armhole and the center back to be too short at the waist.  Measure how much length needs to be added at the center back.

At the bottom of the shoulder dart, make a slit from the center back to the arm scythe, leaving a hinge.  Make a slit through the shoulder dart leaving a hinge.  Spread the bodice back the amount that the center back was short.  This will widen the dart, creating a better fit through the back and arm scythe.

So, there we have it.  A nice simple alteration for today.  If you have any questions, leave them in the comments.  And stay tuned next week for the 'Too Erect Figure', our last bodice back adjustment.
