Butterick B4985 second muslin

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!

  1. Looking good! :) I can't wait to start working on this top. Also, I know its only your muslin but I really like that fabric.
    Ooh, thanks for sharing about the sleeves too. I think I'll do that on mine as well :)

  2. That looks really good from the back. I sometimes think that magic happens when you're sewing. The pieces often look wonky and like it'll never work out, but then magically it does! :)

  3. Lol Heather I agree, when I see the flat pieces and then the 3D result I'm always surprised! Ashley thanks, I'm sure your top will be super cute too!
