I am having a hard time seeing how this will affect the fit. To me, it looks like the back knee is being raised (relative to the front) and perhaps the back thigh will be slightly narrower, but overall, the pattern seems the same.
In the CD version, the net result was that the back crotch was lowered...basically like pulling up the central area and scooping out the crotch bed. Why is this better?
Whenever threading a needle, in addition to putting a little spit on the end of the thread, I was told to put a dab on the eye of the needle itself. Wow! What a difference! The thread will generally just flow right through the eye with no drag, no miss! It seems gross to be spitting in the sewing room, but hey! whatever works! :)
I wish I could remember who gave me this tip...
I am wondering what would happen if you DIDN'T lower the armhole of the bodice, but instead, just added that football shaped area to the undersleeve, as illustrated in the step that says:
"Shaded area indicates extra added under arm."
Would it still have enough bias to allow reaching? Just curious...love this topic!
