|Let's just pretend I don't look really uncomfortable, ok?|
After the boob related issues I encountered last time I decided to go a size bigger. I figured that the extra weight that I seem to have mysteriously gained over Christmas (can't imagine how) would definitely push me over the edge into a medium. And boy am I glad I did. This top is so comfortable, with plenty of space for breathing and all those other necessaries. Like underwear.
The other thing I did differently this time was add a bodice lining. I didn't realise this was an option when I made the dress, but it is actually so much easier than facings. Mainly because you don't have to mess about with bias tape on the armholes. Rae has put up some brilliant videos that take you through it step by step, and if you watch them properly instead of being all complacent and assuming you can just wing it then you can do this without having to rip out the same seam three times. Not that I did that or anything. Oh no.
