|No pulling across the bust and this fabric a cotton sateen even has less stretch|
than the first V8815 made in stretch twill
This is my second go at this pattern. My first version, which I love btw; however, it had some pulling across the bust in the first version. I may even redo it ,who am I kidding? I know that will lol..I have the fabric and all!
Did I do an FBA you say? Well no, I didn't, as a matter a fact. I just graded out to the next size below the bust for the extra room...And yay, look, no pulling across the bust! Now, I'm sure I've broken some kinda of sacred sewing law. Yeah, I could have done an FBA, but hey I'm a "Tim Gunn" "Make it work" kinda
|That invisible zipper is looking mighty fine if I say so myself,|

|Another pic for the road just in case you forgot what it looks like BAHAHAHA!|

This version came together in about one day, minus I dragged my feet for two on hemming! What can I say, I detest hemming, like, really! This fabric was a dream to work it's a cotton sateen, although, it didn't have as much stretch as thought.
Which is why I'm glad that I graded below the armhole and down. I needed the extra room..However, great fabric to work with none the less.Well, that's all I have for now ladies. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
