And we're back! For those of you still assembling your muslins, here are the steps. First, baste your darts together. To do this, fold and pin them along the traced lines. I also put a pin at the very end of the dart so I know exactly where to stop stitching.
The neckline still gaped, so I took 2 tiny tucks at the sides of the neckline.
These tucks taper to nothing at the sides of the muslin. They're shaped like a wedge rather than a rectangle. You'll see this in more detail when I make these alterations to the pattern pieces.
Finally, I took the shoulders up a bit, as they were giving me a line-backer look.
Next up: transferring the changes to the pattern and making a second muslin!
How are you all doing? Remember to post your muslin pics to the Flickr Group. This way, everyone can weigh in on fitting solutions. It really helps me if we can all provide feedback for each other, so don't be shy!
