    1. Aw thanks! The actual fabric is also lightweight, but will be underlined and lightly boned. I’m undecided about the skirt- underline, or petticoat, or both. It all affects the final shape…

      1. well with all the hip padding I’m already wearing, it is becoming pretty clear isn’t it? My big ol’ belly has only been squashed in a couple of inches, certainly not tight lacing. Geometry in action!

  1. Looks like you need another horizontal dart across the back at armhole level.. A FBA may take away the drag lines at the sides…other than that the back is a lovely fit.

  2. Haha! Drafted for hams! Love the details here (who knew there was such a thing as horizontal darts?), the fit is looking great. You’re making so much progress with your SWAP! I’m fearing mine won’t ever get started……..

  3. I would definitely do an FBA before tackling the back. It looks like it is pulling round and that maybe the upper back bit will drop down once you have done this. I might also do a very small broad back adjustment. The shoulders needs adjusting a smudge too I would maybe pin the up a cm or so. This is really nice though. Xx

    1. I think it’s going to be really nice, even though I was in two minds [only 2?] about those puff sleeves. Advice from Artisan’s square is similar, and to take the back horizontal tuck higher up, under the arms. All will be tried!

  4. Love it, you really suit that style. Is everything going away for Christmas or will you crack on?. Like the red lights by the way.
