What People Are Saying About Dress Shop 6
This update is just wonderful. I am truly amazed. My grand
daughter wanted an old fashioned night gown with the curved yoke and
once again it suddenly appeared. Are you guys bugging my house (grin)?

Q: When I draft a pattern the back bust line is always about 3
inches too low. The front bust line is in the proper placement.
How do I adjust the back bust position without effecting the front?
A. Bust level in the front AND in the back is determined the same
way -- by coming down from your shoulder point by the amount you
have entered for Bust Depth. That is the same amount for front and
back. So, if back bust level is out of place, then that suggests
your back shoulder points is out of place. That is, the slope of the
back shoulder line is too great.
If that is the case, you should increase Shoulder Slope Back until
it is in place.
