Vogue 7457 (OOP)--Completed
The top is done, and here I am actually wearing it in a photo. I'm sure the neighbors enjoy seeing me posing on the front porch with the tripod and self timer!
The pants are a pair of one-seams I made from TSW's Hudson Pant. These are full length instead of cropped like on the pattern. I made them from a black and cream pinstripe linen. Pretty fabric but wrinkle prone.
I had a question about making darts in a pattern like this for a busty person. I'm not small busted, but the full bust adjustment (FBA for short) I made this time was a dartless version that gives more room in the chest and adjusts the lower front so it's more even across the lower edge. I may try this again in a darted version. I suspect I might like it a better, but then there's the issue of disrupting the print. There's always a trade off.
