Just wanted to give you an update. I made a pattern for panties from a pair of ready-to-wear that I like and it’s seemed to go a little better, although I had to do some tweaking (all my friends tease me about my flat butt). I’ve put the project aside, however, to give myself a break.l
Right now I’m working on a halter sundress in a slippery polyester fabric so that’s going to be a challenge, too. I’ve done alterations according to “Fit for Real People” and just cut it out yesterday so I’ll keep you informed. I have to add to the bust and even though I buy by my high bust measurement, it looks like I will have to add another dart in the armhole. (Having a large chest and flat butt is quite a fitting adventure.)
Quick question: why are shoulder straps cut on the bias if this is the stretchiest cut of the fabric? Wouldn’t it be logical to choose the grain with the least amount of stretch because it would be more stable? Just curious!
Thanks so much for your help.
