I have had my eye on Burda 6974 as my MAGAM project for June. I have, however, been somewhat reluctant to sew it because I knew I needed a FBA and did not see where anyone else had demonstrated this alteration on this particular pattern.
So here goes my attempt at a full bust adjustment on Burda 6974--
1. I drew a new grainline parallel to the center fold which is on the straight of grain.
2. I marked my bust point and drew two more lines-- one from the armhole to the bust point and one from just below the armhole to the bust point.
So if all goes well, here is the plan for my MAGAM project for June.
I purchased this fabric on sale from an internet source (can't remember which one at the moment). After I received it in the mail I found that I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. So my June project will be a test garment of sorts. If it works, I will be able to wear it in the summer and with a cardigan in cooler months. If it does not work out there will be no love lost. The plan is to make the top but without sleeves (fitting set-in sleeves for me is a major alteration which I have not yet mastered). I hope I will have good news to report.
Until next time...Sew something you love!
