I currently have a raging sinus infection, which I explained away as allergies for weeks until I started to get constant headaches.  I finally bucked up and went to the doctor and got some antibiotics.  I'm hoping to feel better soon so I can get back to my dress.  I'm feeling dreadfully behind!

I noticed that I had a lot of pulling on my bodice and thought I could benefit from a FBA.  This also lengthened my bodice about an inch which was something I wanted to do anyway.  I had never done an FBA before, so I used my Fit for Real People book and Snug Bug's tutorial as my guides.

Warning crappy phone camera battery died.
I'm going to sew up my new muslin and see where things are at once this stuffiness clears enough so I can look down without my head exploding.  I'm hoping this helps, if not I'll just go with what I had and maybe wear a less va-va-voom bra with it.  :)

Tomorrow I'm off to IKEA to get my sewing desk.  YAY!!!

  1. Hope you start feeling better soon Mia. I'm way behind in the swing dress also, as I've been doing my strip quilt. Finally finished it tonight, so now I can consentrate on my muslin. Thank goodness for that!
    Hope to see a photo of your sewing desk. How exciting!
