I love the matching Rosie Scarf! Next time I do this babydoll top/dress, I will def go up a size on the upper bust cuz it is tight.



...and it has boning in six places...i used plastic zip ties...lol...i am SO making another one of these corset tops next. I have some material in mind for the contrast panels on the stomach. And I need to modify the bust near the armpits to be tighter.

That's a good idea! They would still have a little flex in them.

Plastic zip ties?  LOL that's a fabulous idea, and something I have a lot of access to Smiley

i am going to do a dress with 5640 in a skull/tattoo fabric...haven't found the right contrast fabric yet! would be cute for the fall with tights i think!

I love your tops......my fave is the skully....

I have the same pattern and believe it or not the same problem with the bust...
So instead of going up a size I increased the fabric that goes around the tummy...more gathers (where the pink meets the black yoke).  I love the pattern and now I do not have baggy armholes they drive me nuts....always have to take them up.

I want to try the corset one it looks fab on you.  Ties are great for so many things and cheaper....hardware store here I come.......LOL.  May I ask what pattern you used for it.  

Thank you
