Started muslining New Look 6000 this evening -- it comes together surprisingly fast.
Thus far I've:
1) raised the shoulders
2) taken in the top center back and top center front
3) added width to the the front skirt via slash and spread
4) deepened the back darts
5) extended the front gather darts
My plan for the next version (which will probably be this one with sections sewn in place) is to take in the top center back a bit more -- there is still too much ease around the shoulder blades. Let the waist area out just a bit around the lower back, and increase the ease around the hips a bit, as sitting down would be a nice feature. I also plan to lengthen the skirt, as I would like it to hit right below the knee after I hem.
I'm not really sure whats up with the waist gathers, but they look a lot nicer on the pattern envelope.
