This is what the side view looked like last night, pre-tweak:
And this is what it looks like now:
It's hard to tell, there are two darts, one on each side of the CB seam, and I also tweaked the CB seam and the side seams a little bit too.
Here it is on Emma. I didn't iron and you can see the threads from where I ripped out some basting stitches.
So what do you think? I don't like how the CB seam looks now, especially over my butt. I suppose some things to keep in mind are that I haven't cut down the SA on the CB seam nor side seam; and I haven't ironed.
I'm kind of thinking of ripping out the darts and the CB seam and putting in double darts on each side of the CB seam for a total of 4 darts. Should I continue to beat this dead horse or not???
Here's the inside of the purchased knit dress that fits great; you can see the darts. Also the width from the waist to CB seam is a lot less on this dress than on the muse dress but the width of the bottom of this dress is actually MORE than the muse dress.
And the muse dress is actually navy blue. Some folks commented on the purple color, and I see what they mean, on some monitors it looks purple. But it's really navy blue.
Meanwhile, what do you think my new PR name should be? The polldaddy poll totally didn't work so here are your choices; vote in the comments the old fashioned way:
- Vacuuming the Lawn (blog name)
- Lead Vacuum (derived from blog name)
