We are about four weeks away from Easter. Not a lot of time. I've a few clients projects (separate posts). So I'm starting now on DD's Easter outfit. From my first muslin attempt I noticed quite a few alterations. Particularly in the shoulder area. I cut size 10 of S2588-first view on the left. Also revealed DD has square shoulder. It's very noticeable in this dress. From the muslin notes, you can see my challenge. I slashed the sleeve trying to see if that would help. I also pondered making slashes in the front and back yoke but decided that wouldn't solve the problem. The "pull" seems to be in the sleeves and upper bodice area just below the yoke. Any suggestions??? I definitely need to make another muslin to get it right. Other alterations observed: prince seam (front needs to be move just a little (1/4") towards the center and small sway back adjustment. The bottom of the back bodice needs a small adjustment as well, but I will wait until I see how the other changes affect the fit. This weekend I want to do the second muslin to see if I can solve the fitting issues. Suggestions on the broad, square shoulder alteration would be greatly appreciated.
I'm also making a matching jacket, S2558 view A-short version with bell sleeves.
The fabric that I'm using for the outfit is a fit from Marji. DD really likes the fabric.
