Mine. Mine. Mine.
Here comes Butterick 5639, in view C, yet again.
In an attempt to get it right, I shortened the skirt pieces and made the size 10 rather than 12.
That mostly fixed the extra-fabric-at-the-armholes-issues, but still persists in being too large around the ribcage.
I had to take it in at the sides again. But, have succeeded in not having to create those disappointing bust darts.
I plan on making a cooler-weather version of this dress, but I'm thinking it's about time to move on to another pattern, one that might be more flattering (hit at the waist, rather than below the bust).
