adventures in costuming
well shoot!
Umm... the toile with all the seam allowances looks better at the bottom and in the back but it's HUGE in front. Like DDD big.

*sigh* I am just not going to be able to do this on myself, I need my dress form. It's going to take a little engineering first to work with her though because, as you know, Narcissa is broken. I really wish I had $400 to blow on a new professional dress form; it would make my life so much easier. I may have to break down and get another cheapie though. Like my cheapie irons that I just plan on replacing every two years or so. Narcissa did last almost 5 years…


Well I'm quitting for the evening anyway. I won't get a chance to work on this again until Sunday, if then. Real life getting in the way of costuming... I mean the nerve.

Well foo, how frustrating! Can you use the front pieces from the first toile ? That looked like it fit pretty well...

If you get desperate for fitting help you could come up for a Tuesday night sewing, although I think the next VA one won't be til a week from this upcoming Tuesday...Tuesday nights are often spent pinning a friends bodice or helping to hem a skirt.

In fact I'm planning on getting help from the girls on exactly where the back closure should be on my bodice. I find that prety impossible to do without help.

Yeah I think I'm going to use the orginial front pieces with the new back. If I can't get Narcissa to work I may have to come up and get some help, although that is cutting it pretty close. I couldn't make it this Tuesday anyway... I'm already double booked! :>
