|These tucks were needed because|
Susan took dart tucks in the back shoulder line
I fitted the pieces to my original muslin to test placement
Though I did the pieces only one sided, I drew on
a 5/8 inch imaginary seam line.
The collar needed alterations because Susan took a dart along the back shoulder line. This is an alteration that I will be considering for other similar patterns in the future, along with the adjustment that takes away from the front and adds to the back, thus eliminating the drag-back away from the front of the body look (so attractive - not :-)
|Though I have my jungle print, fashion fabric, test garment in progress, |
I'm testing these stages on the muslin version.
• The next posting (Placket Monster) will finish up this party with some work on cuffs.
• In the Fit to Face posting that follows Placket Monster I'll talk more about my unexpected need to further alter this pattern.
