|Bella, consultant at Bella Industries, Inc., takes a rare break.|
Okay, you all know I'm taking an online class at Craftsy to make the Starlet Suit, and I've spent a lot of time trying to get it to fit. I was so pleased at the princess-seam adjustments & almost started cutting out the wool...but then I thought, "Hey! What about the sleeves?!"
So I put the sleeves in yesterday. They are fine & the length is great--a little different--3/4 sleeves on a suit jacket. But take a look at the shoulder seam (that's not the right word, it's the top part of the scye where the shoulder seam meets the sleeve).
Pattern-making savants: If you know the right word for that part of the pattern, please let me know!
Is this the part of my life where I realize I have narrow shoulders?! Yikes.
If you look at the photos, I've marked where the seams should be & where it is with the arrows...and I think it's about 1/2" off. Now I'm a bit afraid to just move up the sleeve a 1/2" because I'm worried I may make the armhole too big? I need to go thru my sewing books & do some looking around on the web. I may just give it a try on one side, just to see if that's an easy fix. If it's not--back to the drawing board.
Of course I'm open to your hints/suggestions, too. Leave them in the comments, below. And thanks!
