Hello,
has anyone who is large busted has used the sure fit shirt kit?

Have you needed to do an FBA?

I need to do one with every shirt or top pattern I use so I imagine I would still have to but wondering.......?

thanks
Sue

You should email Glenda at Sure Fit. I'm sure she will answer your question. I have the dress kit and have just done the measurements so I'm ready to start tracing my blueprint. My guess is that will not need an FBA because you are using your exact measurements to make the blueprint and you will not need to add any additional room. That is just my guess though.

The shirt kit is for sizes 28" to 56" and there is no FBA to do. You are "building" the pattern based on your particular neck and shoulder size, and including the bust circumference. There is 5" of ease in the pattern so that should cover everything. But just in case, ask Glenda.

Thankyou ladies,
It does make more sense that I don't have to do one. I can now order the kit!

Hi, there's. Lutterloh thread in PR in the pattern modifications section. What about asking there. I'm sure someone will know.

Good luck

I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of my 3kit combo from Sure-fit Designs.
Glenda is clear NO FBA! She has a dart placement template that is based on cup size.
If you watch her videos you will be more excited by the system with each successive video.
I have been using Lutterloh, and made all five pie es of my mini wardrobe from Lutterloh.
The systems are based on the same concept.
You should be making only tiny adjustments if you measured yourself properly.

I just ordered mine this afternoon, it may be here Sat or at least by Monday. I am anxious to use this. I ordered "the works" as I also sew for my 4 year old DGD.

My Sure-Fit design package arrived in San Diego on Wednesday, then it went to Tijuana, and it is arriving in Cabo San Lucas tomorrow. I will received it on Tuesday. I am waiting, waiting , waiting. And I will be charged 21% of the cost for customs and handling.
I did not want to wait until Christmas when I will be in Dallas.
I hope to make at least one garment before we head north!

I still have to get started with mine. I got the shirt and the dress kits. I have just a few more things to finish up and hopefully by the 1st of the year I'll be ready to roll.
I'd love to hear some of you report back on success/failures. Do keep in mind that Glenda Sparling is fantastic to work with. Great customer service from what I've heard.
I met her at the ASG conference and she stressed sending her pictures and videos - she will skype - whatever it takes to get you the best fit.
