Hi Joi This is my first go at posting on the craftsy platform. I am really enjoying your course and reading your discussions with other students. My major difficulty has been in taking my measurements as you can see from the photos. I would like your comments on the fit and how to fix the back bodice - this has become a major fitting issue for me. I did the following alterations. Back Bodice: Vertical adjustment: increased length (at mid armhole) by 1.5cm Horizontal adjustment I decreased the width at centreback by 2cm and added the 2cm to the waist at the side seam. Front bodice vertical adjustment - increased the shoulder to bp depth by 1cm, lowered the front neck by 1cm, increased the bust curve by 1.5cm Horizontal adjustment decreased bust point at cf by .7cm, increased the waist by 1.5cm Front skirt increased the waist by 2cm and took of .6cm of the hip measurement Back skirt increased the waist by .5cm and took off .5cm off the hip measurement. thank you
