Hello fellow sewers.
This is my first post and I have a small problem I would like your advice on.
I have been making a dress for a special occasion, I have been using a dressmakers model (new to me) it fitted the model perfectly (if a little fitted) and I was excited to try it on..
However, I did my first FBA at the pattern stage, which I hoped would make the dress fit better. I have tried the dress on and it is very loose from top bust to shoulder is this because of the FBA? My only thought is to add shoulder pads to see if this takes up the surplus? Is that a good idea?
I look forward to hearing your views.
