  1. This was the most concise tutorial of an FBA I’ve seen in 2.5 years of sewing. Thank you!

  2. Thanks, Marilyn, glad it was helpful. I’m working on a follow-up for a FBA on a bodice that already has a dart, stay tuned!

  3. I agree with Marilyn, I particularly loved the photographs of the three toiles at the end of the tutorial, such clear images of the differences in fit of the finished garment, can’t wait to experiment
