Let's Take It From The Top

So, umm ... yeah. It's back to the drawing board for NL6432. I've retaken all of my measurements and I'm getting some guidance from someone who knows what to do! Check out Patricia Schoeman at Perfect Sew & Fit if you ever have any fitting questions.  Send her a pic and she sends it back telling you what needs to be done and then walks you through how to do it. I would show you an example of her instructions, but it would be too painful ...

For now, I'll leave you with shots of the 'before' tissue. I added two more tucks for the sway back, which still don't look like enough. I added a back shoulder dart and adjust for my forward shoulders. We'll see what Patricia says.

I'm amused by how poorly the turtleneck fits. Hopefully, I'll learn how to make those too in 2011.  I'll worry about jeans later :-)

Happy holidays!

Turtlenecks look easy, but they aren't

First congratulations for being a featured member on PR earlier in the week. Second, you are learning so much about fitting. Isn't it wonderful. It may seem like you are just spinning your wheels but I once had a poster in my sewing room that said, "Good judgement comes from experience; experience comes from poor judgement." Hang in there!

@Serenity Drat. Is nothing easy?

@KMQ Thanks! I had no idea I was a featured member. I'll bet it was the day I was disappointed about Hancock Fabrics. Oh well. I'm becoming more patient with my fitting; I have to be because I've seen what happens when I'm not.
