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....

A nursing necklace is a necklace that's sturdy/safe for babies to tug on or play with while they nurse.  Babies tend to grab hold of Mom's jewelry, and some of it doesn't really hold up to that. Wink

I have noticed that, except I don't really wear jewelry. It is hair, shirt and sometimes hand in the bra...

Yeah! Why is everything white? I dyed a bunch of stuff I was given, but not the fancy organic ones, now they are kind of dingy. I was thinking I know a organic coffee roaster, so I was thinking organic coffee for organic cotton....

I love to make baby stuff - My son is 3 though, does he count as a baby?  (he is MY baby!)

I think so, babies, kids...

Possibly against my better judgement I signed up. Shouldn't I be busy making stuff for myself/child...?

Ah well...

Yea for babies!

That is really cute. Where do you get your organic cotton. And I see under your avatar that our babies were born on the same day!

On a side note, what kind of sling do you use and how do you do it? I haven't figured it out yet!

I know there isn't much time with a baby...I am typing one handed. So keep it simple, just one thing.

Good at making bags, but want a fun knitted hat? Make stuffies, but not clothes? Share your baby crafts with another

Yes, that makes sense, if I am remembering right the fancy dress forms have handstitched (overcast, whipstitch) side seams.

I don't know if anyone has experience with this, but I would say that generally people don't and so the best way to answer your questions is to do a test and see what happens.
If you want to do it in not a stretch you will probably have to do something to keep the edges from fraying. What do you mean bias out the edges?
If you want a slit it can be on the bias, if you want a hole then some if it will be on the bias and some of it wont. Do I understand what you are saying?
I think it depends on your fabric, your shapes and where you have places them, how the holes will act and if you need more shaping darts to control the fabric.
What do you mean remove darts? If you want it form fitting (are starting with a darted bodice) I think you would construct the bodice then make the cut outs. So the darts are there where the fabric is, but gone in the hole. Again, if I understand and if I am making sense. I actually have no idea how this would work, just educated guesses.
I don't know about cutting the fabric on the bias, again I would answer your questions by doing some tests to see what works the best. You have all the questions and the ability to answer them, it will just take you some work.

Oh, duh about the top. On the dress forms with covers you fit to your body the top neck edge is bound with bias or some binding.
