Subject: Trying to fit pattern pieces together for a cap sleeve princess seam dress


I am trying to fit the pattern pieces together for a dress. The lack of instructions is rather ridiculous, I am not a novice, but this is not intuitive at all. The sewing guide instructions are way too basic. I have printed out the patterns for the following: Sheath / scoop neckline / back zipper / princess darts / cap sleeves / hem length 53" / Hem Flare 6

I can't figure out how the pattern pieces fit together with the side front/ side back & the sleeve. It seems there is too much extra material in there.


I'm using these measurements:

Chest Circumference: 33

Back Shoulder Width: 14

Neck Circumference: 12.5

Natural Waist: 28

Hip Circumference: 35

Crotch Length: 25

Height: 64

Weight: 106

Bra Cup Size: b

Center Front Length: 13

Front Shoulder Width: 13.5

Front Shoulder Slope: 16.5

Shoulder Length: 6

Center Back Length: 15

Back Shoulder Slope: 15.5

Have you already made your sheath sloper (fitting garment) to check the fit especially around the shoulders and bust point?

The reason I ask is that its your first post and the shoulder length seems really long.
Karen at wildginger can review your measurements before you sew the test garment.

First you should do your fitting garment.  I see problems with your chart.  Please send your chart by email to support@wildginger.com

Be sure give the product number of your click and sew.

Once you do the fitting garment you can do a real garment.
