This is the part where you re-trace the newly altered pattern piece. That way you don't have to worry about the tape coming undone, or whatever. Since this one is a self-facing, this photo shows where I straightened the neckline using the original self facing as a reference. I then flipped it up and created the new self facing.

I hope that was helpful! If you want more plus-size sewing you can find me at http://peanutbuttermacrame.blogspot.com/

    You lost me on Step 4. WHAT part is the self facing? Is it the triangle shape underneath the original pattern?

    Thank you. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do an FBA on another cowl neck shirt. Your instructions are great!
