    I am making this and I am having some concerns about how to fit the bodice. Can someone help with how to fit the integrated flaps in while expanding the bust size?

      Jacqueline – I just finished sewing the main construction of this today (just finishing left to do!). If you’re doing an FBA, cut the flaps off piece 3 along the lining line. Treat that curved seam between pieces 3 and 2 like it’s a standard princess seam. When you’ve got the fit right, tape the flap (wings) back onto the edge of piece 3 and go from there.

      I found the fit of this to be a bit on the small side, just fyi – you may want to use fabric with a bit of stretch or just up a size. Or if you don’t mind a bit tight and low, this dress is totally va-va-voom! ;)
