the fun of fitting
My sewing machine jammed last night. Despite taking out a cotton ball's worth of fuzz and checking the tension, its still a bit wonky. Rather than tinker with it yet again this evening, I decided to start fitting New Look 6587. I've made coarse adjustments to the whole thing (FBA, removing excess from the sides, etc....) and finer ones to my right, image left. It's not quite there yet -- especially the darts in the back. I plan to do this with a stripey fabric, so it needs to be *right*. I have a few thoughts, but I figured I'd try to take advantage of the blogosphere. Any thoughts?
