FFRP is the book Fit For Real People by Pati Palmer and Marla Alto - I was perplexed with this abbreviation when I first came to Pattern Review too!

Thank you for the great review and the detailed pics. RTW tops tend to do the exact thing to me as this pattern did for you - I also have a bubble booty and have a difficult time with RTW pants - they fit perfectly everywhere else, but gap in the lower back area. Sewing for my daughter has always been fun, so I figure sewing clothing for me should not be too big of a stretch. I was wondering if you or anyone reading this could tell me what FFRP is - Google search doesn't come up with anything viable. Thanks again! :) [email protected]

This is a nice style. Good that you perservered through the seam-ripping and ended up w/ a top you can wear. Just don't take deep breaths. ;) Yes, looks like you need to shorten the length in the back (darted shape).

thank you Knerse for this great review. I just ordered this pattern and I will be very careful to measure before I cut the size. It appears from your side photo that you may have a sway back like I do. Check with FFRP or the SB book as you suggested for the fairly easy fix. THANK YOU again for taking the time to review this. Very CUTE on you! Carla

Good effort. I will be making this one in the future so I am looking forward to the feedback you get from the more experienced sewists.
