26th March 2009: Blah fitting... Having a few problems fitting the top which is starting to bug me. It not major problems really but lack of sleep is definitely not helping.
Made a mock up of the dress with the lining just to check how things fitted. At the moment it's looking like it's just a problem with sizing which should hopefully be easily fixed by making it a little bigger (ended up forgetting if I'd included seam allowances while cutting so that's probably what's gone wrong there.
Things to fix:
The top of the collar definitely needs to be extended as it's way too low.
Add in seam allowances.
Shorten the back, the top panel was definitely to long which didn't help with fitting.
Suffice to say I'll be staying up tonight to get this done in time hopefully. If the next go doesn't turn out better I'll just leave it til after Minami and work on it til May.
