With the release of our newest pattern, the Frankie Shirt, we felt like it was a perfect time to start another sew-along. Join us here on the blog starting November 12th for a series of posts that will take you through the Frankie construction process step-by-step. I will also share with you our favorite tips and techniques that aren't included in the pattern! We hope you join us on our sewing journey as we work our way through this fun shirt.
If you can't sew-along with us right now, no worries. The posts will live on the blog forever, so you can always come back to them when you are ready to make the Frankie. We have created a special Sew-Along Facebook Group which I hope you will join, where you can share questions and project pictures as we work together. It is a perfect place to share your progress and get to know one another. Join the Facebook group here.
Hi Linda, please include how to do an FBA on this pattern. It doesn't look straight forward and the bust measurement is not generous for the sizing. Thanks! Sherry
I asked Linda about the FBA for the Frankie, and she said that several of our customers who would normally do a FBA on a pattern have not done so on this pattern and haven't had a problem. However, if you do need to do one, we recommend this technique from our Sew Confident! series: Adding Bust Fullness Without a Dart, which is in our Fitting the Bust tutorial. https://www.sewingworkshop.com/shop/Fitting-the-Bust-2012-p38176493
