After yesterdays epic fail, today I feel like Wednesday Addams 🙂 Success is sweet!
When I was working on Simplicity 2215, I was doing a 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 FBA based on the distance between the pattern center front and my center front. That was too MUCH. The bodice front looked like a cone bra
and the apex was pointing everywhere but where they should
The muslin bodice of Simplicity 2886 view A fits.
I would post pictures but I don’t want to show my stomach and I’m not wearing makeup and the hair is in a messy ponytail. For this pattern, I did a 2 inch FBA and it looked fine. I could probably do a 2 1/4 inch FBA.
Next up, the skirt of the dress.
Once I finish 2886, I will go back to 2215. I like the dress and now that the bust fitting issue seams to be solved it won’t be as frustrating.
I’m happy with sewing again 🙂
