I’m finishing things tonight….
I found out what the problem was. We went out to date night last night and I was noticing that my LTD was about strangling my poor armpits. It’s plenty big ’round, so what gives?
Then it came to me. I do crossfit 3x/wk. While I haven’t lost any weight yet (I just started cutting food back) I have definitely changed my body composition. And I have more muscle on my shoulders, through the traps especially. I double checked my measurements and … oh. It wasn’t the dress. It wasn’t some wormhole … there’s longer to travel between the top of my shoulder and my armpit (and bustline). Well then.
I had previously made the armscye smaller by reducing at the armpit. I put that distance back in, and my dress fits now. I have a few adjustments to make at center bust, the lining to sew in properly, and the hem to set, and I’m done. (And I need to make a quick slip, but that’s a separate garment so doesn’t count).
As is, it’s very pretty and very moi.
I could probably get it done in an hour or so, but now it’s time to clean the kitchen and make supper! So, tonight.
PS I found somewhere in my house better lit for vlogs, so I will give that another try in the near future.
