I'm working on BWOF 04-2010-102. It's a boxy style with no shaping. I need to adjust for sway back but my question is about the bust. I've looked online and in my books and I can't find what the problem might be but look at this picture. See the diagonal lines going down from my bust? What could the issue be? FBA needed?

I've looked at the reviews for this pattern and none of them have those lines.

TIA!

(sewing room is a mess, don't judge me! :P )

It doesn't look tight across your bust, so I would guess no for the FBA. Maybe you can add a bust dart where the wrinkle is.

The best project you could be working on is the one that's on the table right now.

It's hard to tell from your photos. It could be sloping shoulders or that the whole top is falling off your shoulders towards the back, but the main thing. This is a slouchy, kimono sleeve style so it's always going to have folds and wrinkles purely due to the style. It's a slouchy, boxy, casual style. Don't sweat the small stuff. Once you pull the blouse onto your shoulders properly I think it might solve a lot of your issues. You certainly look to have enough bust room so I don't think an FBA is needed. As I said though, it's hard to tell from one photo.

Thanks! I'm going to make the swayback adjustment and go from there.

This is such a cute style! The lines from your bust look like a French dart. Adding a dart is personal preference. You might be more inclined to add the dart if you're using a crisp fabric like linen or cotton. If the fabric has a soft drape, maybe leave it out. I'd put it in because I like to have some shaping under the bust.

OK, I've come to terms with the fact that this blouse will not be perfectly fitted. I'm working on the final garment and using some batiste I've had for a while. I wouldn't be terribly upset to lose the fabric if this turns into a wadder.

June, I hope you are not saying the blouse in the picture is a wadder. It's far from it. IMHO, it's a very nice fitting blouse.

That's the fist muslin. I"ve changed it a bit since, we'll see how it ends up. I only changed the back to adjust for swayback. That was interesting LOL.

You need to take a deeper dart. That wrinkle is telling you just how big it should be.

Might also try adding a shoulder pad. I get these wrinkles because my shoulders are sloped.

I've quit fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

It's just fabric; we can out-think it.
