Full Bust Adjustments: the when and how

Full Bust Adjustments: the when and how

Hey sewing friends!! It’s Nellie from sewmessy.blogspot.com and today we are going to talk about a very difficult and long adjustment topic. The Full Bust Adjustment. The FBA. It’s almost a dirty word because it’s not a fun adjustment and it’s hard to figure out how much to adjust by and where to adjust, and there is almost no way to know if you’ve gotten it right other than by making another shirt/dress to see if it fixed the problem.

How to Organize Your Sewing Patterns

How to Organize Your Sewing Patterns

If you are a designer or you love sewing and have been doing this for a long time, you realize that you need a system to organize your sewing patterns. Otherwise, you will experience problems such as a messy pile of pattern pieces and difficulty in retrieving your pieces when you need them. When you start sewing, you do not have many pattern pieces and storing them in boxes seems to suffice. However, as you grow your art, you begin collecting many pattern exceeding a hundred. You now realize your pattern collection is out of control, mixed up and your storage boxes and binders start to bulge and tear. It is time you find an effective system of organizing your sewing pattern.

A good organizing system will help you:

  • Store your patterns better
  • Preserve the quality of the patterns
  • Protect the patterns from damage during handling and retrieval
  • Make it easy for you to search, access and retrieve your patterns
  • Makes it easy for you to grow your patterns as you add new ones
