Too tight - V1020

So after making the top View B, at ASG in September I thought it would be cool to see how the dress version would work out. I decided to use a green brown poly cotton print to deal with the close fit and my bumps/curves.

This is the photo used on the pattern.
Maybe with some photoshop work - nah.

So I did the roll shoulder adjustment, lowered the front neckline (really), added some butt room and still had to add a side piece for comfort.

Yes. Too tight. So I've learnt a few lessons here. The main one is don't glue dresses on when you're not 20 anymore :)

By the way, thank you to Aroura from PR review for helping me with my lack of photo linking knowledge. You're a real gem.

24/10/2010 - I've now added a 5cm piece down the side with the zipper and it fits, without looking like it's been spray painted on. :) I'm happy with it now.

Sorry that its too tight, but will say it looks lovely on you.

Oh what a pity it is too tight as the colour and style look great on you.

Shame. It looks quite fine in the photo, but you need to feel confident in it. Perhaps you can team it with a jacket or long-line cardigan in winter.

Ok. I'll add another strip on the other side and 'make it work.'
