Hey sewing friends! I recently finished Simplicity 9702 view C and oh, the thoughts I have.

Plus this was the first time that I did a full bust adjustment (FBA) on a pattern. I watched this really great video that references a similar pattern and I was able to modify it for my needs. I’m linking that here as well.

If you watch the video you’ll notice that she adds gathers at the end of her bodice. To fit this dress, I made darts at the end of my bodice. I explain step by step my modifications in my pattern review.

Here’s the video:

    Thanks for your very detailed review and experiences with the pattern! Very useful. And for what it’s worth, I think you should totally rock this dress all day every day, life is too short to save the awesome clothes for special occasions!
