The shirt looks professional. I am glad you are aiming for just right. A lovely knit would be so 1940's sweater girl. I can see why you would want it to be perfect. While you are waiting, one of the PR members- ?Debbie Cook?Karla Kizer? has links to various FBA's she's done. It's more than one method. They are listed in the message board area. That might quell your impatience for awhile. And, your fortitude in face of imported books- admirable. I don't think I could live there, for that one reason.

I think your shirt looks great... I was surprised that you are aren't happy with it yet - but I understand that you want to get the fitting nailed. Good luck; I can't wait to see it in the fuzzy knit!

I'm sorry you haven't got this fit just right yet, but hopefully the FBA will do the trick for you. Thank you for posting this review, though, because I've been looking for a pattern for activewear and I think this might be the perfect pattern - especially with contrasting colors like you have shown.

Well, I think your top is nice and I sympathize with the bulge on the raglan seams. I am having the same bulge on a knit top I made that has set in sleeves. The top fits well otherwise, but I do want to eliminate the bulge. I guess the next thing for us to do is post photos at the Fitting Woes Message Board with the hopes someone can i.d. the problem. Right now, I'm thinking I need to either go down one size or do a narrow chest adjustment AND do an FBA--but I'm not sure. Good luck and I'll keep my eyes open for future reviews where you come up with a solution-hopefully before I do, because I'm kind of slow on these things.

Kayseri - I've PMd you with some info on FBAs. As mentioned Debbie Cook has lots of info on her blog and in particular a FBA for a raglan. Here's a link to her pattern tips.
