Burdastyle: 2-2013 #113

Ok, This is my favorite top so far. It hides my tummy and butt without being a sack.What is not to love? Changes: I did a forward shoulder adjustment, enlarged the bust area. I just moved the seam allowances over about 3/4inch in the bust area.  It looks like another 1/2 inch would be good. It is hard to tell if it was my sewing or if an increased FBA is needed.  I totally botched putting this thing together. I fiddled with the front until I had it resembling the picture then I sewed it down.  But, good news, Sew Much Fabric out of Houston has a really good review of how to do this water fall in front.  Just scroll down until you see her yellow fabric and you are there. BTW, Roz has some awesome fabric and she is an amazing seamstress.  I wish I had seen this before I tore into my lovely fabric.
Moral of this story is to try this pattern! (But with Roz's help)

Happy Spring!
