I started New Look 6968 today and I really don't know what to do about the bodice fit.
I need a 14 for the waist and hip.
I started with a 14 for the bust, but it was definitely too big. Waay too big. Swimming in it too big.
So then I cut a 12 for the bust, grading to 14 at the waist.
It is still too big in the chest. I don't know what to do?
Here I sewed the front shoulder seam as if it were a 10, bust is still 12 grading to 14.
Better, side bust point seems to be right instead of too low now, but the under bust dart is almost at my bust point, not exactly what I was going for.
I don't recall having this problem before with New Look. But I haven't sewn so many bust darts ever, I think just side or under, not both.
Look at what was in my garden this morning!
There have been some butterflies this year--such a great sight! I don't recall seeing butterflies in my backyard before.
Of course, bumble bees!
And male pumpkin flowers (still waiting for a female pumpkin flower...)
Princeton Farmers Market flowers this week:
I'm going to sleep on 6968. Do I cut the bodice in a size 10 grading to 14 at the waist? Do I Frankenpattern it by making it into a princess seamed bodice? Stuff my bra with socks and pretend I'm a C cup? gosh....
