      Hi Caryn,

      If your bust line is not within the range, you can always arrange for a customized pattern that fits you. It will be chargeable, however, we will customize it to your measurements. Kindly drop us an email with your contact and we will call you back. Thank you.

      Hi Joanna,
      It’s finished with a facing. However the finishing methods are quite similar.
