It seemed to me that the dress with the defined waist and the sleeves was the garment I wanted to use for fit. It has more seams and darts that are adjustable separately between top and bottom. I used 1" seam allowances to allow room for adjustments on the fit garment. I used default ease and short sleeves.

Thoughts about using the dress instead of the sheath fit garment?

Thanks --Amy

It's easier for tech support to make decisions based on your fit garment photos and chart , although it is SOOOO tempting to start tweaking.  < : )
I'll be interested to see how your questions are answered.

We want you to do the fit garment dress. Sew wirh the defaults. Mark as shown. Put in the zipper and sleeves. We need a known base to suggest adjustments if needed.

As a note the most common adjustment I do is reduce the shoulder width.

How can I tell in the program if I am using edited Fit and Design Defaults for a Style (or are they attached to a Chart, this is very unclear to me)?

Before I do the new fit garment, could you verify that the summary measurements are what I should start with?

Sorry to be such a pain, but looking at the garment measurements I am CERTAIN the tummy will be too tight and the hip in the back will be too tight. I posted another question about that on the forum. Here are my front and back measurements.... I would like to start with something that has a chance to fit so I don't have to do this so many times. Thank you AGAIN for your time. I am crossing my fingers!

If you have not done the first fit garment as we direct, then you need to do so. Otherwise, we have no basis for comparison and it takes longer and more fit garments to help you.

Do not worry about front and back measurements. The circumference is what matters.
