    Thanks so much for this tutorial Lena. I’ve just stumbled across it but it’s very timely for me as. I need to do FBA on the bodice of a dress. Very clear instructions and enormously helpful for me.

    Lena, I think this is your second favourite thing, after maths…geometry!! Haha.

    Seriously, though, this is a great video and very clear explanation.
