#bundleUP for Women Continues - VFT Ginger & FBA (Full Bust Adjustment)

You've seen lots of Violette Fields Ginger for Women variations during the blog tour . . . 

did you #bundleUP?

For me, the Ginger doesn't work without 

a Full Bust Adjustment.  


To learn more about the advantages of properly fitting your bust & small or full bust adjustment, visit Everything Your Mama Made & More for the blog series:  "All About the Bust"  

So today is just a look at how an FBA can make your Ginger hug your curves!

Oh, and look how cute my new shoes are . . . my first pair of flats!

Day 1 of the #bundleUP Blog Tour:

Jocole A-Line Shift Dress for Ladies

 Jocole's contribution to the #bundleUP is a Ladies A-Line Shift Dress or Tunic with boat-neck or scoop-neck option.  
  • Sizes XS (0-2) to XXXL (24-26) included
  • PDF Pattern, printable on US Letter, A4, and Copy Shop (36" x 77") sizes, included
  • Knit or Woven fabric friendly
  • Fabric Yardage Guide, Suggested Fabrics, Notions & Tools, included
  • Sizing Guide, with Body Measurements only, included
  • Line Drawings and Inspirational Photos, included
  • Tips to find the perfect fit as well as links to various tutorials and contact information, included
  • Quick Guide Instructions and Glossary of Sewing Terms, included

This pattern suggests "Finding the Perfect Fit" as it is drafted with average/standard measurements.  As I have several fitting issues, I made a muslin with Michael Miller woven fabric.  

I found that I needed alterations to the torso portion.  
Back to the pieces I traced . . . . 

At the lengthen/shorten line, I shortened the torso area, and worked on my "sway-back" issues.  

Information on how to "find your perfect fit" is provided in the pattern instructions.

Links to various tutorials and blog posts are included to help you achieve a great fit.  

(I traced the pattern and marked my Apex, an important point in placing darts on a fitted garment; and used a Full Bust Adjustment later to better fit my body.

Both garments shown in this post are my muslins. This pattern suggests making a "Shell" which is also known as a muslin.)

For my next version, I sized down a couple of sizes to use this lovely floral knit from #girlcharlee (from a KnitFix sale).  

With the modifications made to my pattern pieces, 
I have the fit I wanted.  Yay!  

Follow the Blog Tour May 1 - 8 (during the sale).  You'll get a look at all the patterns included, with reviews and inspirational photos to 
help you choose.
