Peace Y'all,

I know EVERYONE loves V1250... BUT me. I realize my lack of love stems from the fact I can't get the FBA right. The dress has only 3 pieces and the front is 1 piece has a cowl neck.

Can someone advise me in a FBA for this pattern?


Thanks,
Bootzey

I haven't made this dress, but if I was doing a fba I would make a standard dart and rotate it into the pleats at the shoulder. I would probably trace off the front from the waist up, to do the alteration, then reconnect to the skirt.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

Debbie Cook's review of V1250 has a link to her blog with photos and discussion of how she did the FBA for this pattern. It looks like she spent 90% of the time on alteration and 10% on cutting and sewing the dress.
