Hi To All!
Thanks solosmocker and mem for your responses to my earlier posting regarding lengthening the center back seam using Joyce Murphy’s body space and fitting articles in Threads. Since my last posting I remeasured my body space using aluminum foil. It appears to be more accurate than using the flexible curve. The flexible curve just wasn’t long enough.
Here’s my latest scenario: when I lay my pattern pieces flat with the right back and right front touching at the crouch point, the crosswise grainlines are perpendicular to the lengthwise grain, etc., should the body space I see be identical what I measured/molded using the aluminum foil? The space is not! The length of the center back and center front are what I “need”, however, the shape of each doesn’t match my body space.
I’m using old bed sheets for now, by the way.
I’m looking forward to your responses.
