Its too big! WAHHHHHH!
I mean I totally made that mock up to fit supreme, but when I finished it out of the crepe, it just grew I suppose. Its too wide on the sides, and Ive got about 2" too much drape in the back. I wore it to a cocktail party as a test run, and people liked it, but I knew how I wanted it to fit.
I need to chop the blouse by 1" around the front and sides and 2" in the back. I also have to take out the belted back and take it in at the waist, but Im leery because the hips do fit so well! Ah crud. But thats the ebbs and flows of sewing. I dont mind because at least this time I know what is wrong with it, and Ive made a resolution not to have non repaired items in my closet.
It should take about a day to fix. I dont think thats too bad. My biggest concern is the peplum. I have to dart it deeper, and I faced it (I loved me some facing) so I have to be careful when darting so as not to make he facing pull and make the outer fabric droop.
Give me a few days, Ill get it together.
Also, my hem was WAY off. So having not used my hem market, I KNEW it felt wrong. Last night after wearing it, I let down the hem, and did it up right. I adore the skirt, so having a great hem is crucial to me. Marked and ready for sewing. Im quick about that.
See how far off I was by the fold?!
Aw crud I say again!
