If you recall, I made the 2-2008 #116 Burda ruffle vest for the DC Seersucker Social and it was saggy in the bust and big in the waist. I over did my FBA by a good 1.5 inches. I said I needed to find someone five inches shorter with huge tatas. Well, I did.
Meet our high school intern M.! Let me apologize now for camera phone pictures. She wore the vest to work today and it was all I had. On principle, I abhor camera phone photos for viewing any place else other than a phone. But, I digress.
I brought the vest in a few weeks ago with her in mind. She says we’re the same bust size. Considering I was able to fit a tee shirt into the vest to fill it out, I think it’s fair to say she needs to be refit for underpinnings.
How adorable is she?
I’ll be honest, this is also the first time I’ve seen her in anything that fits her upper body and she wasn’t spilling out of. And, she told me it’s the first time she’s had a shirt button in years.
I normally hate giving sewn garments to people I know. I always worry they won’t appreciate them. Or get annoyed if I don’t see them wearing it. But, here is a teenager that’s already wearing it and understands that it fits her differently than RTW. She’s been telling people it’s a ‘designer vest’. And, she doesn’t care about those wonky wonky pockets. I’m so happy it went to a good home!
