Full Bust Adjustments (FBA) is a way of altering a pattern to fit a larger bust.  

There are lots of different ways of doing it.  We can add darts.  change the shape of seams.  add princess seams.  Add more darts.  And probably all sorts of other methods.

Here's one tutorial that I found really helpful.

Let's have a thread for talking about altering sewing patterns with a FBA.  Questions, challenges, success stories...?
