i've never done an FBA before because i've never sewn any tops or dresses, but i have a theory on an easier way to do them, and i want to see what everyone thinks of my idea.

patterns are drafted for a B cup, right? so if i figured out what my bust measurement would be if i were a B cup instead of a DD cup, cut that size, but then graded out at the bustline to the size i actually am, would that work?

for example, my measurements are 37-29-37, so i usually cut a size 14 and then cut the waist a little bigger. if i tried my theory, i'd subtract 3 inches from my bust to get 34" which is a size 12, so i'd cut a size 12 at the shoulder, and then a size 14 for everything else.

so would this maybe work, or am i completely crazy?

Who knew tailoring was so much fun?

People do do stuff like that, but it wouldn't say it is the same as the FBA. You are still going from one size fitted drafted for a B cup to a second size drafted for a B cup....

Goodbye Tucson! I will miss how everything dried so quickly!
