I did my first muslin with FBA today--great! I found the
courage to do it by reading comments on Pattern Review
and looking up sites to explain. Although my measurements
are 40 full bust and 38 high bust, I needed a slight
adjustment and a little reduction in neckline. Works
great. Am so excited to know my silk top will be just
right! Thanks to all who make comments.

congrats! it makes a world of difference doesn't it. If you are worried about making fba - trace the pattern piece that must be adjusted, that way if you must start over, you still have the original intact

I smacked myself in the forehead when I read that! I've been buying multiple patterns ON PURPOSE (when they are 99Cents) for this reason. Duh is an understatement. (Thanks for posting!)
