What's next

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.

  1. That's going to be lovely, Linda. I had looked at that fabric several times myself. You will love that pattern.

  3. I'm interested to see how this turns out. I have it in my "to make" basket, but am skeptical of the FBA.

    1. I posted some photos of how I made an FBA for this. So far the darted bodice is working okay. Have not progressed to attaching overlay.

  4. Your fabric will make a gorgeous shirt, especially with all your alterations to achieve a perfect fit!
