First thing to say: Sorry for the most ugly fabric you’ve probably seen in your life and the assymetry that just makes you cry. Luckily this is just a toile.
I’ve got some fitting problems with this V neck LBD (07/2011 #110). As you can see the shoulders are straining. I don’t know what to do about this, should I increase the shoulder seams or just make the armholes bigger? The armholes of this pattern are quite small. Also I did an FBA but I’m doubting whether I do have the right size for my bust now (maybe it’s too big around that area now?). Plus the waistline seems to drop, any solutions for this? I would really appreciate some help from more experienced sewstresses than me :)
Very bad quality and ugly fabric
