Hey guys~ I wasn't expecting my old posting would get the attention back by now..haha..Thanks for your compliments!

Can you talk a little bit about the basic process behind shaping the bust? It looks great, and it can be really difficult to make a top like that for large b00bz.
Before I made this dress I once deconstructed my old bra to see how to make the pattern to fit on the boobs. It totally helped me to figure out how to drape the muslin on my bust to make the patterns. (Yes, I did draping on my body! of course wearing underwears! I'm not as crazy as to put pins on my skin to make a dress. Grin)

Well it wouldn't be easy to explain the process in words...but basically, think of it like making a fabric ball and cut it in half?  Roll Eyes
You can move around the pieces using basic dart manipulation technique of pattern making...
Anyway...I would strongly recommend deconstructing your old bra! As they say...Seeing is Believing! Grin
