I received an email from Threads showing her method of a FBA adjustment without darts. Has anyone out there tried it?

Rhoda, I've done this adjustment, though not with the attractive precision that Louise demonstrates, and it works well for me on the kind of long, loose shirts I love. For more fitted things, I usually use a Nancy Zieman-style pivot-and-slide alteration.

Thanks, Karla. I may give it a try, but I usually use Nancy's method as well.

Thanks for sharing Rhoda! I'm always looking for FBA methods that don't add to the waist or hips. I'm excited!
