Default Re: Using an average of full and under bust measurements

As far as the major pattern companies go, their advice at the rear of their catalogues is still to measure by the full bust measurement. It's only the Palmer Pletsch patterns via McCalls that use the high bust measurement as standard. Pati Palmer is in discussions with McCalls as to possibly providing better advice in the catalogues as to how to choose patterns so watch this space, as they say.
God put me on this earth to sew and finish a certain number of things........ I am so far behind now, I will never die!
