There is a corner of my sewing room set aside for helping readers with your fit questions. We can all dress beautifully in custom fit clothing. Not just passable, but beautiful. Fitting is very hard to do on oneself. It is much easier to fit another person's body (or accept help if you are getting too frustrated).
I have been working with a handful of you and it is fun. I would love to post pictures of the fitting process for your bodice. Each reader has given permission to post photos, but I haven't posted thes progress pictures yet. I think the posts will be so much more interesting if there is a nice "after" shot. The way it works, is I keep the pattern so I can fine-tune it. Once it is finished, I mail you the pattern. Then we can have more fashion fun by showing how to use those blocks to adjust commercial patterns.
