Here is my Deer and Doe Belladone ducks in a row dress! I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, except I have a pretty harsh fitting issue in the back. At first I thought it may be a problem with the length of each diagonal line on the lower and upper back busts but after tucking and pinning and stitching and repeating and the gaping just seeming to not go away, we (me and my boyfriend) thought the fit problem might be in the height of the waist. Does anyone think from the pics that my waist may be a little bit high and I may actually benefit from shortening the bust? Or shall I alter the upper bust pattern like http://lladybird.com/2013/07/29/completed-a-stripey-belladone/
<- that? It's a beautiful pattern and I was so disappointed when the bottom was so perfect and the top wasn't fitting well at all, if anyone has any other suggestions to try they would be much welcome.
Rest of the pics here:
I am aware of the bias binding sticking out and am pretty sure I know how to prevent that, more cutting into the seams, understitching, less stretching and grading down the bias binding should help, but if anyone has any other advice on keeping bias binding flat too that would be much appreciated!
