Pictures are in order, showing first moulage front, side, back, then second moulage front, side, back. Changes made to moulage after first fitting: 1) Lowered bust dart by 1.5cm 2) Lowered waist by 1.5cm 3) Added 3mm to back neck (points A to B) to remedy gap at front neck 4) Removed 4mm from front shoulder and 6mm from back shoulder to correct shoulder slope and tighten arm hole 5) Enlarged center front dart width by 1cm to remedy gaping under bust 6) Enlarged back dart by 1.5cm to remedy loose fit Enlarging the darts (#5 and 6 above) is the primary suspect behind the horrible gap in the second moulage. I will start my third by shrinking both of these darts back down to near their original size.

Susy, here is where I am lost: On the second moulage, the gap at the center back is actually worst near the bust line, where there are no darts taken on either the front or the back. Since the first moulage had the right amount of give there, I'm hesitant to change that measurement on my paper draft. Any idea why the fit problem ended up worst in a place I didn't edit? What other suggestions do you have for moving on to my third moulage? The front feels great, on the second, but clearly the back is suffering for it.

Sorry for the delay in answering. I was doing more filming for Craftsy over the last couple of days. Anyway, is there anyway you can pin that up the back? If you don't have someone to pin you, can you put in a zipper with a string and pull it up. I actually think it would be fitting pretty well if you can just close it up the back. It looks like there is room to do that since it is roomy in the front. If you can't do that easily, then sew up the back and put a zip in the front. The only think I see really is that the front neckline is a little too deep. I would add 1/4 around the neckline at the front and sides of the neckline. Just fill in it in 1/4. I actually think you are closer than you think.
