Anyone who can sew Slinky like that gets my vote. Great garments.

Thanks, Knitmachinequeen. I do understand now.

Sharonluray the reason I added an armhole dart to the top is because the was top was wide enough to go around my bust but it gapped at the armhole. I simply pinched the amount that gapped into a dart and sewed it then added a binding around the armhole. For the jacket, the reason I added the 2" wedge only on the center front is because I didn't want to add a dart but knew if I didn't it would pull the front up the amount needed for a dart. After I placed the front pattern piece on my fabric, I measured down 2". Then with a ruler I drew a line from that mark and angle it back up to the side seam. Does that help?

Your tops and jackets look so good!

Looks great! Can you describe in more detail the things you did instead of FBA? Why a dart without added area on the top? Where does the 2" wedge begin and end on the jacket? How much would you usually add in a FBA? I have this pattern and am about a dd cup. Would appreciate any help you can give! Thanks for the review.
