The torso fit worked pretty well off the books - I took out a CHUNK at the base of my neck (guess all that T-Tapp got rid of the fat pad there) but basically the modifications I made are good. No FBA needed, to my shock.
(Yes I could do a nicer job of sewing my muslins. :p)
Decisions made - one nice button and I'll want to make a tie. (That's a bathrobe tie, I thought it would be about the same thickness as wool).
I'm fighting with the sleeve at the moment. I never make long sleeves so the extra room that the pattern said was there was NOT enough room if I want to, say, move my arms at all. :p
When I get things pretty much how I like them, I'll add the collar. I want to make sure it's proportional to my short self.
If you think I've gone off track and you live where it, say, gets under 50 degrees for more than an hour or two? Feel free to leave comments!
