Muslin #2. I can see that lengthening the front now has me in trouble with the back. The side seams are even. I sense a muslin #3 in the future.
The front is reaching my waist. And notice how taking all that fabric out at the armpit level helped tremendously.
But I’ve still got a shoulder thing going on. I solved this by having Matt cut back until there was a bigger opening.
Here is the pattern for #1 topped with the pattern for muslin #2 in front, with the changes outlined for #3 in green. I’ve known it since I tried on Sara’s strapless formal dress in tenth grade, but man, do I have shoulders.
Muslin #3. I feel like I could pull in the shoulders a bit, and the waist, but I don’t really know what I’m doing here, so I think I will leave it.
