Spring Awakening Cont.

The muslin fitting:

A good fitting! I was really happy with how everything turned out. The pleats on the skirt need to be readjusted a bit in the back. The bodice needs a little adjusting -- a little more space where that drag line is above the bust. A bit of reshaping of the seams in front to curve a bit more over the bust down to the waist. Bringing the armscye in the back a bit in to create a bit of a narrow shoulder illusion. I was least happy with the sleeve and collar...mainly, I didn't have as much time with them as I would have liked, so they just weren't quite up to snuff. I'll re-work the collar completely and take a look at the sleeve pattern. Collars do tend to be my weak spot...I'll just keep working at them, crazy collars!
