What materials did you use? This is some additional information for students who wish to make a full bust adjustment to patterns that have an under bust dart such as: Petite Plus Patterns Shapely Shirt #104 and McCall Patterns Dress #M6557

You are correct, the instructor doesn't normally answer questions here, but here I am! Yes, this would be a good class for you to take for your fitting situation. With your 32D bust, you will need to do a full bust adjustment. This adjustment will give you more room over your fuller bust - width & length without increasing the back.

May I ask for what does FBA stand?

FBA is an abbreviation of Full Bust Adjustment. Similarly, SBA means Small Bust Adjustment.

thank you so much Kathleen I will try this. I am making a wrap dress in a knit, from the Craftsy class and I have watched your class 3 times now and stumbled on this post from the questions asked, I would like to further ask after I do this under bust dart adjustment do I do the lengthen after or before the FBA
