Here are pictures to explain the pattern adjustments. First we will get the neck and shoulders right, then work our way down the bodice. As always, there are no seam allowances on these pattern pieces.
|Just FYI, I ruined a perfectly good pattern when I made my recent striped shirt with a yoke. What a pain to re-construct my TNT bodice pattern, and all because I was over-confident and did NOT trace a copy for the new style.|
|The back of the bodice does not gape - it does not look like it needs a dart. However, the neckline is too big and needs to be re-drawn smaller. The armscye line at the shoulder seam also needs to be re-drawn to follow DRJ's own arm.|
Coming along nicely! And another reader has emailed me and we are just getting started. With permission, I will post pictures when we have finished.
Back to my sewing, the last thing I touched was my pajama pants. I promptly came down with a horrible cold the next day. If you have to be sick, it's nice to have cute pj pants.
Hope you aren't sneezing and sniffling where you are!
