I love this bodice!
Kristin of K-Line, please help because it’s too tight across the bust but otherwise it fits nicely. Do you think I need a full bust adjustment?
As much as I am loathe to post chubby pictures of myself on the internet, I’m doing it anyway for the sake of sewing.
This armhole is a dream. I’ve never had a bodice lay this flat on me in my entire life. Obviously there is some adjusting needed to fix the gap in the front, but this is serious progress.
No woven garment has ever fit my back this well, and I do believe it is because the armhole is more anatomically correct. I still need to put in the short waist adjustment, but the upper back looks very good.
Ok. We’re ready to do the paper sleeve cone experiment, although I kind of would like to fix that little gap in the front first. It looks to me like all that’s needed is to trim off some of the front bodice at the shoulder seam. Hm. I think I’ll have Martin just pin it in place so it’s a little flatter and deal with that later, because we’re so excited about testing our sleeve cap theory!
Too bad we have to go to a party soon because I do not want to stop now. We’re definitely skipping church tomorrow to proceed with our experiment.
See you soon!
