I get this look with all my RTW clothes as well - one reason I want to make my own, because I am rather tired of looking look a saggy clothing sack.
I had no idea that I had such a petite frame, but it seems I do. That is blogging - I never used to take photo's of my back, so I didn't really know what I looked like. A blissfully ignorant state of affairs, but no more :).
I checked two of my fitting books and it seems I have to make a narrow back adjustment. I'm also narrow across the upper chest, so I would need to adjust there as well.
|Sandra Betzina's book shows the problem well.|
|The Perfect Fit - same adjustment|
I like the jacket, but if I am going to make this, it needs to be made well. Not now.
My earlier attempt was so loose and cardigan like and sloppy it worked! (Pre-blog, I threw it together very quickly, wore it to death, and threw it out). Who would have thought a crinkly cotton would make a good jacket. Must look for some more, for a summer throw on, sloppy cardigan jacket.
Not sure what I am going to make next. Choices...
