part of the reason I decided to blog was to make myself take the time to get things right so with a couple of structured gowns in the pipeline for later in the year getting the fit right is becoming more important!
So for this weeks sewing I’ve tried out a full bust adjustment…not as confusing as I feared. I realised on my last make that this is an adjustment that would benefit my shape so have made the same sleeveless shell top again to compare. I used the instructions in the Sewing Bee book, Fashion with Fabric, but I’m sure there are plenty of other good sources online.
Happily I managed to squeeze it in on this lovely piece of fabric which I won from The Avid Seamstress earlier this year. It’s a fantastic quality fabric that feels cool to the touch.
Not perfect yet but this one feels a better fit so on the right track. Practice makes perfect
