Just to let you know I took the good advice and added two back darts, brought in the back shoulder, rotating that seam forward by 1/2" and took in the centre back seam at the top by about 3/4" curving it back by the time we got to my shoulder blades.
So much better and the front fits better now too, reminding me again how improving the fit in one area helps another.
So folks I am going to try to get the good stuff cut tomorrow and start the steady but sure sewing part.
So helpful to have had other eyes on this project, thank you.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi
