This week, I’ve been working on the Tiramisu Dress from Cake patterns. Last night, I finished the bodice, so it’s time for a fit check.
I really don’t know what is going on here. My high bust measures 31″, my full bust is 36″
Based on the fit chart, I made a 30D. The full bust meaurement for D is only 33″, but I figured it’s a knit, it will stretch, and I don’t mind a close fit.
So why on earth do I have all this extra fabric above my waistline? Why does my seam look like I was drunk at the machine? I won’t say it’s perfectly straight, but I didn’t expect it to look so wonky when I put it on.
I even picked out the seam twice (picking out a stretch stitch is such a treat, let me tell you), and redid the seam to get it as straight as possible.
What went wrong here? Can it be fixed?
My next most likely bodice option is a 35A (based on full bust measurement of 35″), but since I’m already on the lower range of the size 30, I’m afraid my shoulders will be swimming.
