another FO, but sewing not knitting

This top was a dismal failure
I altered and measured and basted and it was ultimately chucked in the trash.
This top
was not a failure, but despite massive measuring, even sewing a dummy, it still pulls across the bust in real life. so the next one will be altered yet again. Perhaps this is why I prefer knitting? While it takes much longer, the resulting fabric is more forgiving of larger areas.

I have had many such problems sewing and sometimes I think it may be a pattern problem. I have come across a few mistakes over the years so don't be upset. You could try the Lutterloh system. I saw a demo on how it works and I will never buy comercial patterns again.
