18 Aug The Quest for Perfection, Simplicity 4149
“It’s a risky project with a lot of potential opportunities for disaster.”
Hubby has been watching way too much Project Runway.
“….. and you need to think about ¾ length sleeves.”
Here’s my muslin after I made my standard adjustments to shorten the bodice – far from perfect.
Pinning out the ease and raising the darts was more time consuming than difficult.
I knew my perfect tunic would feature a contrasting placket. To do this I needed to sew the placket and neck band on the wrong side (inside) and flip it to the right side (outside) – opposite of what the directions state. I also wanted contrasting sleeve bands.
The darts are better.
But it’s not perfect!
Next time around, I’ll lengthen the placket, make the bodice length one inch longer, consider a lower band, get rid of the ease in the sleeves and perhaps add an invisible side zipper.
“What do you think, Sexy?”
What do you think, Readers – any suggestions to achieve the perfect tunic I’m seeking? 😉
