I took a short break this afternoon to catch-up with Gertie’s Crepe Sew-along. The first step was to cut out the muslin, thread trace the seam lines and baste together.
After hearing other peoples feedback that the bust is amply cut in the Crepe (even more so than Colette’s other patterns) I decided to forgo a Full Bust Adjustment in the first instant and go with the measurements on the envelope. My bust-waist-hip measurements are 44″-37.5″-48.5″ which equated to a 16 at the bust and 18 at the waist and hips.
The math seems right but once again when it’s all stitched up there are a few issues that are puzzling me.
At the back I’m getting the same sleeve issue and some pulling across the middle. Maybe I need to grade up a size?
Too much for my brain on a Sunday afternoon so I’m off to ponder it with a beer in the sun as all good pondering should be done :)
