Unfinished Simplicity 1316 top

Lessons Learned: The importance of taking your measurements regularly. My high bust increased and I didn’t know it. I love this top, but it’s too tight across the high bust. It’s such a shame too, because I think it’s only by a little. I can’t let it out since I trimmed away the seam allowance when I did the French seams!

Next Steps: Try again! This time I won’t do French seams and I should be able to let out the high bust area enough to get a decent fit. Otherwise I’d have to repurchase or grade the pattern to size up. (Downside of being #TeamCut!)
