Hey there! Following yesterday's pattern alterations I made another test top and I'm quite happy with the result:
Those sharp angles I was worried about worked well eventually! I lengthened the back pieces at the hem and drew a curved line to make it harmonious. I know it's not perfect but I'll leave it like that since 1) I'm not a fusspot 2) my weight varies by 2 pounds almost every fortnight. I also slightly altered the sleeves by superimposing the big dots on the back and front sleeve pieces to join them:
To me the sleeve has a nicer drapé like this, even though you can hardly see it in the picture of the muslin -I totally forgot to take side views^^!
Well I guess that will do for the fitting part, I'd like to get started on the real thing but I'm afraid to cut into one of my hoarded/treasured Japanese fabrics so I'm probably going to think about this one a little longer... See you and thanks for your advice on yesterday's problem!
