Stressful!!! I love a challenge.
Last night I spent the night working on a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) and a Muslin. I have only 11 days to make this dress. I'm sweating and panicking.
My challenge begins with a Full Bust Adjustment. There's two ways to do an FBA: cutting the pattern in 3 places or a pivot. Vogue 1520 bodice is one full piece with the left and right sides so I decided to explore the pivot method.
After tracing the front bodice on newspaper, I proceeded to pivot the original pattern 1.5 inches on both sides of the bodice.
Here's my new front bodice.
Then I made a purple muslin using some leftover Interlock fabric. The interlock fabric was perfect to use as a muslin, because it has the same amount of stretch as my stretch velvet fabric.
The muslin was very large in the waist line so I scaled down 2 inches for the waist. Tomorrow I will cut out my fabric and complete step one. Hopefully...
