using simplicity 4070 because of the bust seams. 







you should have a "front bodice" pattern piece that you cut out on the fold that basically looks like this. yours will have the straps and a different neckline, and probably a more extreme side cut line





this is the "front side bodice" piece that you should have as well. it's what makes the curve for your bust to fit into. it may not look like the pieces fit, but they do. 




the pink is the side, blue is front. see how the corners line up? that means they will fit.



use pins! lots and lots of pins!!! start from the bottom corner(the corner that will be sewn into the skirt) and pin your way up. when you get to the start of the curve, make sure the edges of the two pieces are on the same line always! it will create a weird bubble or two for the bodice front piece, but dont worry about it. its just the fabric moving to the curve. when you have it pinned sew it down.



i used a bright blue so you could see it. follow the curve with the foot, and be slow if need be. also, where the seam is there will be weird bubble like curves in the fabric edge. dont worry about them. you havent done anything wrong.



Pull the seam taught and look at it! it's how its supposed to be!~ you can also clip the curve a bit, just dont cut your seam.


and this is how it fits when over a body. the bust seam falls in the middle of the bust and when you have the side and back pieces on, it becomes taught. the best tip i can give is to use a lot of pins. take it slow, and if this doesnt help you, i'm gonna have to go out and buy that damn pattern lol.

What is your earliest memory?

I remember my Dad holding me after I was born. I only remember seeing his outline and white light, but I remember his saying, "Now I won't have any of that now" because I was crying. And I stopped.

Sa bir by dir en grey. It's a mix of both. It's beautiful music, but it could be very dark and deathly. I love it.

Which movie sequel do you like better than the first, and why?

View 844 Answers


~Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows pt. 1, and i'm sure pt. 2 will be my favorite once i see it. the first harry potter was great! it stuck to the book, it included the right parts, and the kids didnt over act! but, no one knew how much HP would take off so they had a lower budget. the later HP films had an amazing budget, and in turn, they could provide better effects. i love all the HP films, dont get me wrong, but i think the HP series is one that gets better with the sequels.

I would choose Lebanon. It's where my family came from, it was once the "jewel of the Mediterranean" and i would stop that damn war and bring it back to its former glory.
