This Semi-Customized Designing Block and fitting system is the base 5 piece block from which all my patterns and fitting services are based.
Drafted with these considerations:
- "C" bust cup sizing
- shoulder and back considerations
- smaller waist to hip ratio
- curvy hips
- athletic arms... and more.
The bodice and skirt, with a darted sleeve is used to fit and design any style garment you desire. This is my template and block for fitting and designing and now will be yours for comparing and fitting any pattern you choose.
The two-darted bodice is used to fit your curvy mature body and is a great beginning point for designing well fitted tops, dress styes or jacket designs.

Video tutorials to get you started on your way to a great fitting basic wardrobe of tops is already on the SewToFitbyAdlynn youtube channel. Other more complicated designs for dresses, skirts and jackets, can be developed using future "Design Guides" offered separately for growing your wardrobe and your pattern making skills along the way.
Woven or knit fabric can be used to fit this garment separately after your basic fit has been determined using a standard cotton muslin fabric or gingham toile.
