Since this is "Fearless February sewing, I could not let the fact I don't like alterations keep me from having a nice top! So i put my "Big Girl Panties" on and I took it all apart and re sized the front of this top until it fit enough where I liked it. It turned out pretty good I might add! I kept the back, collar and sleeves which were all cut a size 10. However, I needed to cut the front pieces a size 12 to accommodate "the girls". This worked like a charm as a cheating FBA! I also had to remove about a 2" wedge from each side seam to reduce some of the fullness of the top....
All of the changes worked like a charm for creating a great top! One I could now wear and be proud of making the perfect alterations! Thank you "Fearless February" sewing challenge for giving the courage to fix this rather than toss it in the "Wadder" pile!!
This may change my thoughts about the "wadder" pile in the future! Also, a well fitting garment always makes you look better and in my case here, slimmer too! There may be some hope for those unwanted items!!
Thanks again for stopping by, I truly appreciate all of your wonderful comments!
