I began pattern fitting and adjustments yesterday and this morning for my next top. I am using McCall's 7249. I am making the long sleeve version.
I had to make several adjustments to this pattern-forward shoulder, swayback, narrow back, FBA. The challenging fit adjustment was the FBA. The base front piece will not have a dart as a result of the bust adjustment. I did not want the overlay to have a dart so I moved that to gathered edge of this pattern piece. I also adjusted the neckline by one inch as well. I will post some photos of those adjustments later.
I am using a knit that I recently purchased (September) from Fabric Mart; this one did not stay in the collection very long. This is not the best photo of this fabric. It is a lovely light pinkish beige with tones of light and dark gray.
My plans are to cut out the fabric this afternoon.
