Burda 8110 – checking the fit

Toile Finished

To the left you can see the toile almost finished. I have a hard time fitting princess seams because I need a large Full Bust Alteration (FBA). I’m thinking of making it a 2 step process where I do a traditional bust level dart then transfer it to the princess seam.

Anyway, I got the bust alteration too big. It was too big in the back, too, but that’s an easy fix; simply, take the seams in.

And on the right, we have the finished product. I like it. I wore it while in Maine, and my SILs liked it, too.

It still has some bugs. The straps are too far towards my armpits for both comfort and bra coverage.
