The phrase “from the sublime to the ridiculous” is definitely springing to mind as I write this post.
Following my last post I checked more books and even went to the library and borrowed The Perfect Fit! They showed full bust adjustment for a pattern without a bust dart. One which doesn’t add a bust dart. Cool!!!!
So I followed the directions.
I marked up the pattern as instructed:Then cut and spread. Here it got a little tricky. They told you the maximum amount to spread, but didn’t give any recommendations based on cup size. So I guessed.
I also added a bit to the side seams and to the front edge as planned.
I may have overdone it. A bit.I had tea with Himmelbjerget on Friday (and some rather lovely buns that Little Stitch and Nino enjoyed immensely) and we pinned and pinched and I think we’ve got it sussed. I’m going to make another version of the toile either tomorrow or Tuesday and we’ll see. Very nearly there I think. I HOPE!
