This is NOT a close-fitted bodice.
I could store a spare tyre or seven in here.
I’m feeling a bit hang-dog that this is my third bodice and they’re getting worse! I can’t understand where all this extra room came from, since it certainly wasn’t in its predecessor. Bah. I’m supposed to test out my sleeve pattern now, but it seems pointless when (desperately-needed) changes to the bodice will demand changes to the sleeve.
Most frustrating is that I have two classes left – not time to fix this, check sleeve, and draft skirt. Grrr.
