I'm so excited!
I have been wondering, changing my mind and umming and ahhing over the adjustments I've been making to the vintage Butterick pattern... Should I be bothering? Will it work? Am I doing it right? Is there a better/easier way? Should I make further changes... Anyway, despite changing my mind many times over, I have continued down my chosen path... I have graded the bodice up by an inch and done an FBA without bust darts (will explain why when I start the project page). This evening I tentatively stitched the bodice toile together, put it on, stood in front of the mirror and was delighted to see the alterations had all worked really well, it was just as I wanted. I have two minor adjustments to make and possibly a third once it is made up but it means I can now get on with making my prototype tomorrow *huge grin*.
