Sorry I haven't posted this week. It isn't because I have done nothing or have nothing to show -- I just haven't taken the time to post.
One thing I did this week was to sew the muslin for the Crepe.
Here it is:
As you can see, the fit needs a bit of work. I can actually tighten it a bit more if I let it ride up a bit:
I think that helps show just how much extra fabric there really is beneath the bust. I haven't gotten to altering it, though. I waited a while for the post about sewing it and this week I have been swamped with shopping. Bleh.
There is extra fabric above and below the bust, the darts are a bit high. I can actually move the bust area to the right spot, but then the shoulder seams are too far forward. I may want to go down a size and add a full bust adjustment rather than simply changing the position and shape of the darts, but I fear that the sleeve will be restrictive if I do. I fear there will be several more runs of muslin making in the next week or so. I think I need some assistance in pinning things out first, though.
