Q&A with SiValEngr

CoudreMode asked:
Oh I can definitely sppreciate how an FBA might be a challenge with this DKNY pattern. I wonder if it works to choose the size based on a bust measurement and then adjust the pattern below the bodice? The design complexity seems to be above the bust vis a vis the collar etc.
SiValEngr answered:
Other than sleeve length, I think this is challenging for most fitting adjustments because of the one big piece that is most of the jacket. To alter it, I had to cut pieces that were fused together apart, and then do the alteration, and then put them back together. I like the fit with this last one. I was able to pin the two jackets together last night, so even though the fit is a little bit different between the two, along the main seams they are the same. I have to take a deeper hem in the brown side in a few places, and I will have to wrap the edge of the collar with a band deep enough to catch both fabrics and use the hand stretch stitch, but I think I will wear this jacket a lot.
