The Perfect Fit!
Posted on June 23 2022
My instructions to her were to fold this small amount out of the armhole and let it open up in the side bust dart. But when I received her email I was on a short vacation...and she was heading to a wedding the next day. So she went ahead and sewed her fashion dress without this change. She copied a Dolce & Gabbana designer dress and off to the wedding she went.
She didn't have time for the custom belt, but it was coming...just after the wedding. Isn't this setting in Santiago beautiful - just perfect for a wedding.
But after the wedding, Caroline went ahead with the armhole and bust dart refinement. Even though this next photo is a little fuzzy, you can see that she overlapped the amount of the fold in the armscye and let it open up in the side bust dart. See the orange arrows.
This process shortened the front armscye, which means the sleeve cap front needed to be shortened as well so that there wasn't too much to ease into the armscye. Here's a look at her finished bodice pattern pieces.
