I started cutting my Wiksten (PDF) Tank pieces and I suddenly realised that I would be fine around the bust. but not fine when bump starts to grow and eat into the length.
So, readers, this is what I have done to rectify this and I am just double checking that if; you were doing this alteration you would do it like this or what I can do to make this better!
So here is the front piece:
I slashed it and added 8.5cm.
Then aligned the grain-lines with my ruler. This ensured that the pieces with in alignment with each other still.
I then added more paper to the sides of the top and then using my long quilting ruler, I made the outside edge a straight line again by merging the top of the top and creating a new cut line- this extended the bottom of the top by 1.3cm. I do, in fact, think that this is a bonus as I will be expanding very soon around the waist. Now the bust section has stayed the same but the waist will now be increased by 2.6cm on the front....
.... and the same on the back.
I know that I muslin piece will show once and for all if I have done the right thing here, but let me know what you think, I would really, REALLY appreciate it!!
