As for fitting, I could tell from the reviews it might be a tad short for me. I could tell by a quick measurement that the neckline was too deep for me. I wondered about the armscye too - looked like it might gape.
So I made these changes:
- Added about 3/4 inch to the bottom hem. This will likely be the finished length as I plan to bind the hem.
- Raised the front neckline about 2 inches. Still slides on over my head.
- Raised the underarm about 1/2 inch. I'll still need to pull it in a bit - maybe with an easing line, maybe by increasing the SA.
Dresses are very appealing. And comfortable. And breathable. Should be perfect during dog days of summer.
Now I'll have to get over my white legs and my mature arms, but my tummy will be camouflaged a bit. I hope. Oh, yeah, it will definitely be fine.
Such an interesting design. It should be fun to make. Got some plaid remnants selected from the stash.
The muslin should be wearable as the underdress. It's a soft light-weight denim.
This is not too bad as a little slip of a dress.
