Wow! You are making great progress!! I have a couple comments with what I notice. On your side view, I would assume that the side seam should go straight down. Yours curves toward the front at bust level, which would seem to suggest needing more fabric on the front and less on the back at that level. On your back view, I wonder if your back length measurement was a bit long? Your waist seam looks level, but you have some extra fabric above it, as if you would need a sway back adjustment. Otherwise, this is looking fabulous!

Thank you!! I shortened the back by an inch and it is looking better. I actually took my measures again and started from scratch. But in the second moulage there are some other problems !!!

I had the same problem with the crease on the front bodice. I decreased the cross front by 1/4 inch and lowered the side by 1/4. I also had to scoop out the front armhole from the cross front to side seam without lowering the side seam. Does that make sense?

That makes a lot of sense!! I think that I should shorten the side and back. Thank you for your input

Were you able to do this by yourself or did you have someone else to work with you to take measurements? Also, did you have a dress form to use? Thank you. Marolyn/Salem, Oregon

Hi! Yes, I needed help for the measurements, and to close that back with pins!!

I notice that your center front darts must be to high up... They don't look like they are pointing to your breast nipples.... .?? Otherwise.... Really good work.
