Can I get a woot woot!

July 14, 2013

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

left and right

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 🙂
