Description

Not 100% finished, the underlap is not done because I couldn’t work out the instructions, so I have left that for another day and decided to take a photo anyway.
The cups are a little gapey and now that it is all sealed up there is not much I can do about it, I’m not sure I would be confident wearing it as it. I might rip the bottom seam open, get in there and tighten the straps and try take the top band in a little, I think that will help. Then I’ll put a black binding on the bottom to seal it up again. I wanted to do that initially anyway,

Still, I think it worked out pretty well!!!

    Thanks for the comments! I never went back and tried to readjust it, and have never really had the occasion to wear it either. One day! Never worked out the underlap part of the instructions and the machine refused multiple times to sew it on through so many layers of fabric, so resigned to hand sewing it.

    Did the bust pattern 7, 5 and 6 match perfectly? because I have sewed 3 times just the bust part and the pieces do not match. The piece number 7 tend to be bigger at the end. Unfortunatelly I cant post a picture, yo show you what I mean

      It’s been a while sorry I never came back and checked the comments! I remember having some grief getting everything matched up, but it got there. From memory everything had to be the correct size to the mm. I think I didn’t bother using interfacing… Feeling it now I don’t think there is any in there. My stretch cotton fabric was pretty thick.

    Hei, from Norway, I bought this pattern, but I need some help, I have some doubts because I get confused by the instructions. Would you please help me through? Sorry for bothering. Which parts should have interfacing? does this pattern has or not sean allowance? etc.

    Gapey cups are a much-occuring problem on a style like this. The close fit just makes fit such a personal matter. But it looks good and you already put in all the hard work… of course it’s never nice to have to go back and open up finished seams to fix the fit, but I’d say it would be worth it!
