Did you see Sew Caroline's new Tank Dress pattern that just came out? It's adorable!

It's a very simple design which is excellent for beginners. However, the absence of a dart means that bustier ladies (anyone over a C, I'd guess) are going to find it doesn't fit so well, with lots of drag lines underneath the bust.

The good news is that it's super easy to add them! Here's a quick tutorial for how to adapt the pattern with a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA), using the Fit for Real People approach. It also works for any other type of non-darted dress or top.
