    4 out of 5 Making Fit Adjustments to the Gemma Tank by Made by Rae


    This is such a simple top to sew but, given the fact that its a semi-fitted woven, tank top it took some fitting adjustments to get the fit I wanted. Thankfully Rae has included cup options with the patterns which is always a bonus, however, I also have narrow forward facing shoulders and swayback issues which I had to address. It was a revelation to finally realise just how easy it is to pinch and rotate out excess fabric from my upper chest to get rid of gaping there. As these are fundamental redrafting techniques I talk in further detail over on my blog how I made the following adjustments:
    – forward shoulder
    – swayback
    – pinching and rotating out excess fabric
    – lowering the bust darts
    This pattern may well fit you straight out of the envelope! However, it was a great experience for me to tackle these issues and I love the resultant top which I think is a good classic basic. Highly recommend.
