    How do I know if I need to adjust the bodice length? The instructions say to adjust as desired.

    “The Penelope Peplum is designed to flare out at the natural waist. You can adjust the length of the bodice as desired by following these steps below.”

    I am new to women’s sewing, so how do I know if I desire to adjust? What measurement on my body should I compare to the pattern to decide if the pattern is good as is or needs an adjustment? Thanks!
