    Alterations for bust size

    In another thread some of us were bemoaning the fact that patterns assume a certain bust size that most of us are not. The reason I got into sewing is because I can't get a decent shirt to fit and/or the button holes are always in the wrong place. I am not only big chested, but short waisted so altering patterns is a fact of life for me. Princess seams work the best for me. And darts are my very best friend.
    There is a great article in the current Threads issue on how to alter patterns down to A cup or smaller (FYI).

    Anyone else have tricks of the trade?
