I left off with pics of fitting the pattern with no SA (seam allowances) on Mrs. S and making the minor alterations and then making the pattern ready for a toile.
I cut everything out and VOILA....
|You can see the thin piece on the front panel. I had to do that in order to fit the pattern piece onto the existing jacket piece. It will be covered by trim after so nobody will see. And besides piecing is accurate right!?!?! lol|
I amaze myself sometimes! LOL. The fit is perfect and I have so much range of motion. I'll definitely be able to run after kids and wrestle them down in it. To be honest tho, I never have had much luck fitting myself and so have always been unhappy with the garments I've made for me. I can fit and sew ball gowns and wedding dresses perfectly for other people, just not when it comes to myself.....UGH. But I think I'm gonna be ecstatic when this one is done. Yippee for me!
