The only fitting problem I had was the arm. I genuinely couldn’t move my arm in my muslin! So I drew the armscye up onto my shoulder and closer to my underarm, and added 4cm to the band. That seemed to do the trick.
The end result was absolutely worth the wait. It’s being worn everywhere, despite being a bit rough and ready. Though I don’t expect anyone to be looking too closely at my topstitching! Now I have the confidence to sew shirts and button up dresses.
