I'm sewing out of town, and don't have my fitting books with me. My dd is in need of scrub tops, and wants me to copy her favorite rtw -- but "make it fit better, ok Mom?"

Any tips?

Easy - you simply cut off the dolman or cut-on sleeve (I just shoot straight up from the side seam to the shoulder area). Make your FBA, then tape the sleeve back on. There will be a triangular shaped space between the sleeve and the body after the FBA which will need to be filled in with tissue.

I swear, every answer we need is somewhere on this site. All we need to do is search for it.

Thanks, Gigi...and thanks, Deepika.
