|Burda style 135|
The pattern is ready to cut out first thing tomorrow and my cutting table is actually clean and ready to go. I made a full pattern to accommodate the difference in my shoulder so my 5' wide cutting table will come in handy. When I took the pattern drafting class with Kenneth King I learned that my right shoulder is quite a bit forward of the left. Not only does the shoulder seam need to come forward at the shoulder tip, but the sleeve cap has to have quite a bit more in the front of the sleeve as well as flattening the curve out in back. The muslin was good without the binding I always get at the front sleeve cap. I also had to move the match point on the right sleeve quite a bit to the front, while the left sleeve was fine. KK had us sew the under sleeve for about 3" on either side of the underarm seam so that he could adjust the sleeve forward or back until it hung correctly. I did the same thing here and it worked. Of course it is a bit harder doing it on yourself!
I am really hoping that this blouse will become a tnt pattern since I have quite a bit of shirting material in my stash. After all a blouse has been on my to sew list for a number of years now and a girl needs more than one blouse, doesn't she?
