I did a small FBA on the tee front and used the same fabric so that I can judge the difference the fba makes. This one is a long sleeve tee and more for autumn/winter, ( although I could have got away with it on Monday). The fba gave me the needed room but I've ended up with a bit of bubbling on the side seam. It's almost like I need to lower the bust gathering about 1 - 2 cm. Hubby and DD1 claim it's not as noticeable as I think but I''ll run it past a few sewing friends for an opinion.
In this photo I haven't hemmed the sleeves or hem yet: (or done my hair or make-up, lol)
Here you can see the neck binding rolling out and it's tricky, but you can just make out the poofiness under the arm.
There are also a lot of wrinkles on that sleeve....
And the tank top, also still unhemmed. There is gaping at the front armhole (full bust adjustment needed) and it hugs the
extra padding fluffiness a little bit closely, I think.
Both wearable, but I'll look at moving the bust gathers at the side seam down a bit on the next top. The tank top I'll only wear under a top with sleeves.
