Nwe Look 6808


This is what I have been working on. I pretty happy with this muslin so far. I made a total of 3-muslin. I still have to tweak it some more. I am not going to over fit. See the pics below, your comments will be greatly appreciated. My plan is to work on this muslin and get the fit right, so that I can have a basic TNT pattern to work with.

This muslin looks okay to me, I can't see any problem area, you've done a great job on the fitting, or is there any problem area you are concern with? Great job

I have that pattern, and I give you kudos for perfecting the fit prior to the actual fashion fabric. I didn't, and wish I had!

I have that new look pattern, too....you may have inspired me to go dig it out and make a muslin. Your muslin looks great...how does it feel? Sometimes I go all crazy with over-fitting and end up with a very nicely fitted, wrinkle-free straightjacket ;)

Thanks you ladies for your kind comment. I need to tweak it a bit more. The neckline was low and it had a bit of gaposis, I corrected that by removing the fullness and raising the neckline. I started working on this pattern in August, and it is a slow process. I am sticking to my guns, I need a blouse/dress sloper and this pattern fit the bill. More later..

Alethia, it looks good, but I have one suggestion. In the back under the arms there are diagonal wrinkles. I have that same problem and struggled to correct it. Since you probably work at a computer most of the day, there's a slight curvature to the upper back. Make a horizonal slit across the upper back and let the bottom fall into place. It will probably be less than inch. Of course, once you make this, you'll have some pooling at the waist. Just fold out the excess. If you have any questions, shoot me an email. mbrayfiftyfouratcomcast.net. HTH< Melodye
