|Bust darts are in the right place on me!|
I have always been curious about this method so decided to use it for adjusting the blouse in Simplicity 2154. I first had to lower my bust point and then did a 1" FBA. I also adjusted the shoulder as it was too long, and curved center back a bit for a better fit .
From a construction POV, I used a light see through salmon pink cotton voile with flowers. I backed it with a solid pink voile, basted them together and worked with the pieces as one. I thought the neck facing on the pattern was too small given they want you to baste it to the inside. I had to understitch it to get it to fold and then tacked it to various seam allowances. I tried to leave the bow uninterfaced but it needed the volume, so I went back and added it. I left off the side zip as I can squeeze in to it as it stands.
As for the Craftsy course, I liked it. The instruction was good, pleasant but not too chatty. I am pleased with the FBA technique that was taught and will certainly use it again.
