My first FBA
If I choose size based on my bust measurement, I have so much extra fabric billowing out below my bust.
I own a book of sewing patterns, ‘Sew Many Dresses, So Little Time’. It is unique in that you yourself combine the various elements which make up a dress, to make you own dress.
It also advices on how to make an FBA, Full Bust Adjustment, and this was the first dress I made an FBA on.
But I followed the instructions closely:
Mark bust points. Measure 2 cm from the busy point. Draw lines outwards and downwards. Cut and spread.
It was so much simpler than I thought.
But if course the real test was if the fit in the final dress was good
