Just so you don't think I'm nuts, LOL, here's a picture of the pattern pieces lined up with notches and dots matched. It really is off.
So...I don't know if this is a mistake or what but its something to be aware of when you make this top. Okay; now on with the rest of the show. Remember, the camera adds 10 or 20 pounds, right? LOL.
The front doesn't really look too bad. Just a little bit of wrinkles at the sides. This is still a straight size 16 with only the bust point dropped 1 inch and 1/2 inch added to the 2 front pieces (you can the see 1/2 inch addition in the picture above).
Here I see wrinkles in the back.
Ugh! I'm listing! It looks like the tower of Pisa. You'd think Alan would have enough presence of mind to tell me to straighten up. Sigh.
Alright...I had Alan pin the shell closed at the center back marks. It's too tight. Guess I need to add a bit. LOL.
What do you think?
