So it is done, over, completed! And I love it. Cannot wait to wear it. I had hoped to wear it this weekend since during the week it was in the 90s. But of course, the weekend hit and it was cold and cloudy. Oh well….
I did make some additional changes. I had to take in the side seam from the waist up about 2 1/2 inches to have any sort of definition. I could probably take it in a little bit more. So, I really don’t think the FBA was needed with this pattern. When I make this again, I will not do the FBA and may think about a dart.
The neck is too big. This added strip of bias binding keeps the shoulders from slipping off. Besides, I rather like the effect. I will need to think about making the neckline smaller. Not quite sure how to do that!
