Advance 4328 pattern envelope

Here it is basted together for the first fitting

basted together for fitting

WTH? There are so many issues I don't even know where to start. And the pattern is my size!

For the hell of it, I ripped out the basting on the right side and made these quickie pin-fit alterations:

Added bust dart
Took in the side seam
Replaced deep tuck at lower front with a smaller double-pointed dart at waist
Temporarily (or maybe not) lost the gathers at the shoulder seams
Deepened, moved & altered shoulder seams for sloping shoulders

I would also have to completely redraw the armscye which means messing with the sleeves as well.


The question is not can it be done? It's do I even want to try?

I think no.
