I finished my top today. I’m totally sold on full bust adjustments now. I don’t think I’ve owned a top that fit me so well as this across the chest that wasn’t terribly large everywhere else.  I’ll be doing fba’s from now on.

I love the way the sleeves turned out too–I think they’re too wide to be straps, but it’s probably a matter of semantics. At any rate they have a lovely crisp feel to them. I lined them with muslin which feels very nice. The fabric is Joel Dewberry chesnuts in white. As a rule, I’m not a fan of quilting fabrics for clothing because I think the drape fee;s a little weird to me, but it being summer and me not being able to find a lot of prints this year, I broke my own rule.  At any rate this is wonderfully comfortable and cool which is much needed in the heat.  It makes me want to grill something tasty.

    What a great top. It looks great on you. I know it must feel wonderful to spend so much time making something that ends up fitting so well.

  2. Very flattering. You did a great job! You’re inspiring me…maybe I can adjust a garment in the opposite way. 😉

  3. Wow! It is a GREAT fit! I will have to remember the FBA when I get around to making tops for me! You look very pretty! Grill something tasty, then tell us all about it!! Some veggies maybe, I love grilled vegatables, but never know how to season them! Suggestions?
