WIP: Couture Dress

My evenings after work have been filled with muslin and fitting for the Couture Dress class at Craftsy.com …well, not just that…but let´s say that this dress has been on my mind quite a lot!

Le mie serate dopo il lavoro sono state dedicate alle prove del vestito per il corso di tecniche sartoriali su Craftsy.com…be’ non solo, ma diciamo che il vestito mi ha occupato abbastanza la mente!

Here is my current headache…sleeve fitting. Sorry for the poor pictures taken last night.

Le maniche mi stanno dando qualche grattacapo. Scusate per la qualita’ delle foto. Le ho fatte ieri sera.

They look and fit fine when my arm is down

Calzano bene quando ho il braccio giu’

Sleeve fitting

But when I raise my arm they pull a bit. I even tried not to remove the additional fullness on the bodice and fit the sleeve as is. The result is not much better. Through Frabjous Couture I read a Threads article To Get the Right Armhole, Fit the Bodice and I am now thinking I should raise the armscye.

Quando alzo il braccio il vestito tira un po´. Ho provato a non togliere la stoffa in eccesso sulla spalla e usare la manica di base. Ma il risultato non e’ il top. Ho anche letto un articolo consigliato da Frabjous Couture: <a href="Per un giromanica perfetto, sistemare il corpino. Per questo sto pensando di diminuire il giromanica.

Sleeve fitting
The funny thing is that I realised all the garments I have sewn so far where never dresses and never had woven sleeves! Now you know what I will be doing in the coming days…

La cosa divertente e’ che mi sono resa conto di non aver mai cucito vestiti a maniche lunghe con tessuti non elasticizzati.  Ora sapete cosa faro’ nei prossimi giorni..

  1. Don’t stress! It doesn’t look that bad at all. From the drag lines I see in the photos, it looks like the sleeve cap height needs to be increased. That’s all!
