Can I get away with this? - 428 Bodice

So I've mocked up the 428 Jacket Bodice and it fits nicely. Then I took it off and realized I only closed the front with 1/2" overlap, which covers the seam allowance but not the overlap for buttoning. Can I just add a little bit to the CF to account for the overlap? And how much should that be...

Purple Bustle Ball Gown

Hi everyone. Long time lurker, first time poster - it's amazing how many talented seamstresses post on these boards, you all inspire me! So thought I'd post a couple pictures of my latest TV project. I got the fabric and trim on a trip to the LA garment district. Underneath the gown is my "Clas...
