ABOUT THIS PATTERN:
This pattern has been graded up and down from the original size of 36 inch bust. No redrafting of the pattern pieces has been done for the larger sizes.
Sizes 46 bust through 54 bust will need alterations for sleeve length, hem length and possibly neck and shoulder width.
A full bust adjustment may be necessary for sizes larger than the B cup for which the original pattern was drafted.
A Note About Grading Vintage Patterns
Grading from one size into a wider range of sizes is both a science and an art. This is especially true with vintage patterns, that were often inaccurately manufactured, or previously used/altered by a past seamstress.
Prior to grading, the digitized original size is checked to make sure that seam edges and notches match. The grading process can (and often does) introduce some variables. This can be especially true when expanding or shrinking more than three sizes from the original. Such as from a 32 Bust to 42 Bust. Or down from a 42 Bust to a 32 Bust.
You may see some little peaks or valleys along curved edges like armholes or sleeve caps. Just adjust your cutting to smooth out the curve where needed. Shoulder seams and neck lines may widen or lengthen disproportionately – use the closest size to your measurements, and adjust accordingly.
Always sew a test garment to verify and alter fit before constructing the garment out of your final fabric.
