Here you can see what I mean about using pencils only ;)
Back curve and front curve before I cut the pattern out.
So, once this was all cut out, I got it sewn up in calico (muslin)
Put an invisible zip in the CB seam, beautiful first time round *takes a bow*.
Got everything all stitched together, put it on and oh dear!
The pics will come when the light is a bit better, another dreary rainy day but lets see if I can remember what was wrong with it.
The bust points were too high, and too close to my CF.
The armholes gaped like crazy.
The neckline was all gapey.
I didn't even look at the location of the back darts, I was too disheartened.
Would make a cool bodice for a dress though when it fits right. It's just a block, but I'd like a nice dress like that.
So to end on a high note -
How do you catch a unique bird??
You-neek up on it..
