This non-darted full bust adjustment (FBA) tutorial is perfect for anyone wanting to do a full bust adjustment on a non-darted top or dress sewing pattern.

Difficulty Level = Beginner

We originally designed this tutorial to show how to do a full bust adjustment (FBA) with the Bomber Jacket sewing pattern, however you can use this with nearly any bodice top or jacket pattern which doesn’t have bust darts.

Our womens’ patterns are designed for a sewing C cup bust (B cup in most ready to wear bras). If you don’t fall into this size you may need to adjust your patterns, to get the best fit at the bust, armholes and across the back. This tutorial will walk you through doing this.
