This is going to be a short post. I just finished posting about the Hong Kong finish on my other blog and I'm a little tired. Or maybe it was babysitting a little 19 month old tornado today. Yep,that will do it for a Nana.
I wanted to talk about S2501 because there's been quite a bit of buzz in Blogland about these great patterns that give you a bust cup size choice.
Well.I'm sold. This is the same pattern I used for DD to make this blouse.
Mine looks different but I used the same back and sleeve pieces. For DD,I used the front for a B cup and for me ,a D cup.I also lowered the dart (a bit too much maybe) and made a slight swayback alteration to the back piece.I cut it a size 12 with a little extra on the side seams ,but I didn't need it. (My fabric is a stretch cotton ).
The only issue I have with this pattern is that it rides to the back a little. You'd need to cut the shoulder seam allowance off the front and add it to the back shoulder seam and I'm sure that would solve the problem.
I'd love to hear if anyone else has used one of these patterns. I think it's a big stride for pattern companies to recognize that all women aren't moderately endowed,don't you?
Happy Sewing Everybody. I'm getting ready to go see my other little baby grand-daughter in Ottawa next week!
