I’m planning on starting a bib tunic style dress & was just wondering if anyone happens to have any advice on my issues. Basically, I’m a person who usually needs to do an FBA and for the tunic, I’d like to avoid the maternity look.
My main info source is my mom’s home ec book from the early sixties—very helpful, but those alterations are a bit more structured than what I think I need for this project.
Because of the style, I assume that only a side dart will be possible. I’m wondering about the placement – the original pattern has no dart. There’s no center seam in the blouse/dress front. It is cut on the fold. There are some gathers on the lower edge of the bib section. (Thinking about reducing the gathers).
I’m somewhat new to FBA (some hits, some awful misses) and so I’m a little nervous about jumping into this project. Frustration is anticipated with this project, but I’m hoping to minimize it — and hopefully learn something.
Thanks for any advice!
